Is an Apple iPad better than an Android tablet?
It depends on your preference. Personally I think that the apple ipad is better, but you should go to the store and try out both products to see which you like best.

Hard to say ... you know, Apple iPhone, that's a a lot of restrictions from apple ... Android is opensource - no restrictions .... iPhone is heavily restricted, Android isn't. There's only 4 iPhones, Android has hundreds. iPhone isn't very customizable, Android is. iPhone can't install Custom ROM…'s (These change the whole look of the phone OS) iPhone can't. ;) (MORE)
This is more of an opinionated question, but like Steve Jobs said, "This is the year of the copycats." If you have/have not seen the commercials lately, there was one for Samsung, Blackberry, and many other companies that have used the same idea as Apple, but instead label it as a "tablet". It is st…ill debateable which one is better, but if you are able to test each one out, you can choose for yourself which is better. iPad 2, since the new iPad came out they don't really sell the iPad any more only in Ebay.

Well it depends what you are looking for, really. I have an iPadwhich is really good for apps and and surfing the web, plus it'seasy to type on and easy to use. iPhones are just as good really,they are a small version of iPads and they are a phone as well,they have apps and are easy to use and easy …to type on. It justdepends whether you want a phone or something to surf the web withreally? The prices vary quite a lot as well, an iPad 1 is aboutÂ£400 but it varies, an iPad 2 is Â£700 but it varies (i have an iPad2). Whereas an iPhone 1 is about Â£100 but it's not very good, andan iPhone 2 is about the same price, iPhone 3GS is Â£300, iPhone 4Â£400, and iPhone 4S Â£600. If you are looking at getting a cheapiPhone if I were you I would get an iPhone 3GS because iPhone 4S(most recent) is really expensive, don't get an iPhone 4 if youwant 3G because they are really good apart from the fact that theydon't have 3G. It's your decision what you get, I'm just trying tohelp you. So to your question, they are just the same really, it just dependswhat you want to buy. (MORE)
The Mac Book and ipad serve different purposes. The Mac Book is a fully featured Laptop. The ipad is a large ipod touch that can sit on your lap.
The iPad is a personal computer. (PC) It is aimed at a segment of the computing market that has not so far been very successful. So far, the iPad has proven to be successful.
The iPad and iPhone are two devices with similar functions. Each is better in some ways than the other. Small size can be an advantage. Large size can be an advantage. --------- They are the same.. Both are powered by iOs. The only difference is the screen size. Check the sources BELOW to help… you decide (MORE)
ipad is much better than iPhone because of the screen size and ipad is much faster than iPhone . Ipad also had better camera. But iPhone is the best phone in the world. Apple the best
ipad can better than a laptop. ipad is like a mini laptop version with less functions, ipads can also not open many websites using the Internet but on the other hand there are some apps* which can be downloaded on an ipad but not on a laptop .laptops can also store more information than an ipad. …*applications (MORE)
No. Android has far better applacations, hardwear, layout and performance. Blackberry app world has just over 500 aplactions, whereas android market had over 3000,000. Blackerry are also prone to slugish behaviour and constant freezing. I'd recomend an android, as you'll get a much better smartphone… :) x (MORE)
It depends. But in my opinion Android is a little better, because it is more affordable and has a slightly better operating system. But the two are about the same.
Note that this question asks for an opinion. Below the line is one opinion. The comment about the type of glass would refer to a particular hardware manufacturer. There are many manufacturers who make devices which run Android (Motorola, HTC, Samsung, to name a few). There is only one hardware manuf…acturer for Apple. There are certain Android devices which can be at least as expensive as a similar Apple device. But there are many Android devices which are inexpensive. The lower end models will not be able to do as much or run as fast, though. . Yes, Android runs faster and is much less expensive than apple. Apple is expensive and the screens are very breakable, unlike Android, the screens are maxi glass so they are really nice! That's my opinion, but my mom brother and sisters like apple better. (MORE)
Depends on your criteria e.g. For Apps: Apple, For More Freeness Android is In my opinion who has an android phone and a iPod touch I think android is better
Just around a year back it was all about Apple and its products like iPad, iPhone, iPod touch etc these all products are iOS based and no doubt Apple made the finest quality but now scenario is completely different. Apple has lost its influential image. Android has changed the whole concept for Tabl…et Pcs and smartphones even for TV. Android devices are now the dominating products of technology market. Apple products are awesome but they appeals a lot but they are very strict and provide limited access on the other hand android devices aren't only appealing and cool but also provides flexibility. Android OS is an out standing open sources that allows to change it according to your will. Android simply damaged the value of hardware brand names, people are less bothered about hardware company name. Even when it comes to tablet PC or Google TV people don't consider hardware much. Its about the Os, Features, apps and interface. There is list of manufacturing companies like TMobile or Ozitechnology which aren't even globally famous like Motorola, Samsung, HTC or Apple but still those companies are doing well with android based devices. (MORE)
It depends on what you want out of the device...Also if you want something cool and your in your teen or older years, an android tablet is the best. An Ipod is good but it cost so much and the only way you could get the music and videos and to start it up, you must have itunes. Some people cant g…et itunes. For the android tablet you just need to start it up normally. You dont neeed to install any software. You could put any files on any computer or anything. Also newer versions of android like 2.3 or newer is even more cool. ANDROID IS THE BEST (MORE)
It all depends on your needs. If you need (or want) to play a Flash video, then an iPad will not be your best choice, as Apple does not allow Flash to run on it. You will have to determine which particular device and operating system will best fit your needs. Apple has the most apps, but those apps… are limited by the AppStore acceptance policy. The Android tablets have fewer apps, but has many more free options, and is rapidly catching up The Windows based tablets have the fewest apps, but have a better software compatability list (and a corresponding higher price) (MORE)
NO, Apple just intises you to buy things, but they are not neccesarily better. I have a Blackberry Tablet, it is fine and like 300$ cheaper. They both have apps, for free and to buy, go to a technical store for compare. A ipad is a tablet. The only thing is that it is apples version of a tablet. I…f you are asking for a opinion of if you should get them then I will tell you that I have a personal bias against apple because their products break too easily for me. (MORE)
The question asks for an opinion. Below is one answerer's opinion. There may be others. See the discussion section, for example.... . No, because with Apple you have to buy the ipad or iphone which are the only devices you can buy, and there are both very expensive. With Android you have more devic…e options like the Samsung Galaxy, Motorola Xoom, Toshiba Thrive, and Black Berry Play Book. Android also power the two new digital readers, the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet. The over all price of Apple is $400 - $700, while with Android the prices are from $250 - $1000+. Also Android is, in my opinion easier to use than an Apple. Finally, Android is more open to installing apps from outside sources and it is legal to jailbreak or root Android devices. The Android Market may not have as much of a selection of apps, but the price on the apps tend to be cheaper. With Apple you can only download apps from the App Store (Apple's Market), it is also illegal to jailbreak you Apple device. So, in answer to your question Android is better than Apple. (MORE)
I choose the iPad, however this would be up to the user of the device, it all depends what product you would rather have.
apple apps r better bcuz i had the iphone and an android phone and i typed in grand theft auto however i got a ton from apple and none from android thats stupid becuz apple haz it and android dosent so prefer apple
Yes. The iPad 2 is definitely better than the original iPad. First because of the most obvious differences that it now has a front facing camera and back one for facetime and movie recording. Secondly it is also considerably thinner than the previous generation wich had a sort of wobble when you put… it on a flat surface. Thirdly the graphics are incredible and noticibly faster. (MORE)
short answer: No Long answer: Because of the overwhelming growth of the Android platform in number of devices, apps and supported products, the iPhone and apple have been slow to react. in this slowness, they made the fatal error that the android platform was just a small bump in the smartphone… road. However, now it's apparent by the current numbers that Android now outnumbers iphones by almost 15%. These numbers and figures may not mean much to you, but what does matter is that mostly all new high end android handsets now have 4G radios, dualcore processors, better graphics, and bigger screens. In addition the android market will surpass the iPhone app store in number of apps in September of this year. (MORE)
its all an opinion some people prefer to read than play a game on an i-pad there is no which on is better... just which one youd rather do
The iPad two if (at the time of writing) the latest generation of iPads, where as the iPad 3G is a iPad one or two that has the ability to use mobile networks to access the internet.
The iPad 2 is the 2nd Generation model of iPads. The iPad 3G is actually an iPad (1 or 2) with a data plan attached to it so you can roam anywhere with internet access.
Actually, They are pretty much the same. You can read, download books, watch movies and videos, play games, and do much more just like the ipad. The good thing is that the NookColor is cheaper than the ipad. I know because i have one.
It depends on what you want to use it for, an iPad is good for multi functionality, While some tablets like the blackberry playbook are based around different uses.
So iPad it's really good and apple are great and it's really easy to download stuff!!
No. Your iPhone may be a little delicate without a case, but in OS terms, your iPhone will last two years without being overridden with dangerous software or thrown against the wall in anger.
An Android tablet is way better. All Android tablets are more customizable, have cameras, voice commands, faster processors, have more internal memory, more external memory, more apps, accept flash drives, SD cards, and more. Some Android tablets even have 4G LTE. The Kindle Fire does not offer any …of these things. (MORE)
Android is for phones, while Windows is for computers. Totally different devices. If you meant Android vs Windows Phone 7, then I don't know
IPhone 5 has WAY BETTER quality in video footage and pictures. Android however lacks appearance and awesomeness!!! Get an iPhone 5 if you can!
They are used for different things. A macbook is used for more work related things whereas an ipad is used for more casual, entertainment purposes. You can however get pages, numbers and keynote on the ipad but it is quite hard to use and expensive. If you are looking to use one for work definitely …get a macbook, an ipad would be out of place, unless you like doing work on a touchscreen. Ipads are, however, quite fun to use and are for entertainment. (MORE)
The ipad weight less than the laptop. . you don't have to wait a lot of time 2 log in. . the ipaid you can draw and color the drawing . . you can make your own drawing. . you can download game and etc. . you touch the screen with your own hand.
They have better and notifications and slightly better customization. According to the charts, that has not been enough to please the users though.
Yes because you can read books on nooks and listen to music record videos play games and buy albums of your favorite artist
This comes down to personal preference, it all depends which you like better. The related link has an article on this topic.
All iPads are a 9.5 inch screen. Android tablets can vary from 7 to 11 inches in size.
iPads run the IOS operating system by Apple, and are only made by Apple. Andriod tablets are made by many different manufacturers, and all run the Andriod operating system by Google.
It really comes down to personal preference between an Android device and an iOS based device. Both devices offer touch sentive navigation, have quality app stores, fast Internet browsing, email and navigation. Recently Android based systems pulled ahead of iOS due to larger screen sizes supported b…y the various Android supporting manufacturers, but with the upcoming release of the iPhone 5, it is expected that the playing field will be levelled with what Apple releases. Android traditionally has been targetted toward a more tech-savvy or business oriented audience, boasting features such as Near Field Communication etc and strong Google service based integration, but Apple is certainly expected to up the technical offering with the iPhone 5 later this month.

You cannot really compair these two devices as there aimed at different markets. So the best device is the one that suits your needs best.
I think an iPad 3 is better because lots of people have them and you can become popular from having them.
iphone and android use completely different operating systems so even if you could get the installation files into your phone the app will NOT install nor run. just try to find similar apps in android market.
Run Android apps. Since there are many manufacturers of Android hardware, the capabilities vary from one model to another. Some Android tablets have expandable memory, some have USB ports for external hardware. There aren't nearly as many apps available on an Android tablet, so if you want to …limit yourself to the number of apps you could possibily install, that could count as an advantage... (MORE)
This is not really a good comparison. It's like asking if a telephone is better than a TV. OK, well Android is an operating system, based on Linux (similar to Unix). Java is a programming language - a set of rules that programmers use to create the programs (apps). The operating system controls the …basic functions and how the phone (or tablet) interacts with files and the user. (MORE)
Well, it depends on what your needs are if you are searching for a tablet mainly for reading. The Nook has proprietary apps that are specific to that device that you might not find in a tablet with Android OS. However, you would have limited app choices, and an older Android OS built in with the Noo…k. (MORE)
There is no clear cut answer, but if you are buying a tablet for primarily games and entertainment, then buy the iPad. If you want a tablet with free office 2013, a usb 2.0 port, mini hdmi, and a built in kick stand, then the surface is the better choice. (great for students!)
There are many places to find good reviews and comparisons of various Android tablets and the Apple iPad. A good online source is CNET. One of the most well known print publications for product reviews including technology is Consumer Reports, which is also available online.
Yes, apple has a lot less customisation features than android, android allows you to do a lot more and has a better design. This is coming from someone who used to use apple w u I then found Samsung and now only ever uses android
First of all, the iPad is a single product, while the Android tablet is a collection of different products. Android tablets run on Android, while the iPad runs in iOS. Ipad doesn't support flash, while Android does. The Ipad doesn't support true multitasking, while the Android does. The Ipad has mor…e apps then the Android tablet. (MORE)
Yeah, now time the android phone is stand on the fist stage forphones. The apple is not good compare with it high price. While theandroid smartphone use the low price and also buy the some featureapple's phone feature. So, more and more people like buy thesmartphone android phone.
