    I don't own any of these, but I do know that the Nexus 10 is something else to consider.

    I'd go nexus 10. Cheaper than those 2, better resolution than the 3rd and 4th gen ipads, stock android (meaning fastest possible updates straight from google)

    My understanding is with the release of Jelly Bean (4.2) android is really coming into it's own and a better option than IOS. I've got an old clunker still running on gingerbread so I am not qualified to speak from first hand experience.

    Absolutely.

    But if it doesn't have to be an android tablet, Acer W510 is worth checking out. Here we are talking a Windows 8 X86 tablet, so it will be fully compatible with the typical stuff people run on a PC or laptop.

    You are more likely to keep using your iPad once you get it than any other device:

    So if you want something that you and the family will use, get the iPad. If you want a hypothetically superior device that will collect dust, get something else.

    very well written biased story. It all comes down to the user. I bought a 3rd gen ipad the day it was released.

    Loved it. Screen was amazing. Battery lasted what seemed forever.

    Did not like the fact i had to reinvest in my apps I already owned. I had to use the stale OS look of iOS and couldn't change anything about it.

    I ended up taking it back after 3 weeks.

    The app selection and the screen format are what sold me on an iPad last March. I switched from an Android tablet (Asus Transformer) and haven't regretted it for a second.

    Why would you have to do that?

    As EE that specializes in microcontrollers, I will pretty much never ever purchase Apple products. Manufacturing practices, QC, pricing relative to performance, their patent applications and the East Texas judges that allow it, compatibility and licensing policies, and the typical insipid style over substance of the Apple fanboys just turn me off to that company.

    At a recent Apple convention the most focused topic was that the icons for Lion and iOS looked too old fashioned and real. Wood borders were not as avante garde as the new Windows 8 UI art style apparently. Bunch of pretentious pukes.

    I have the Nexus 7 and I absolutely love it. Even more so since the 4.2 upgrade.

    Same here.

    I didn't think I'd use my Nexus 7 as much as I do but it's become my go to device for surfing the web, reading, and playing games in bed.

    iPad guy here. Bought the last version 1 month ago. Haven't used any Android based tablet but I am sure both are equally good. You can't go wrong.

    My only suggestion is if you are undecided, go with the one that uses the same OS with your phone. It will make it easier for you.

    99.99% of apps i've purchased for devices are on android and developers wont let you transfer licenses due to piracy and such concerns

    Nexus 7 or 10.

    I would get the 7 if I didn't already have an Asus TF700 tabby.

    For a full-size tablet, this isn't really a question.

    For a 7" tablet, depends on if you want to spend less than $320.

    I have both platforms. And ill say Android is far superior. Apple is smooth and reliable but its not customizable for the user. Thats androids biggest win over apple IMO. Ill take user experience over anything apple has anyday.
