    I have an I-phone and I-pad. I run what ever I want on both! I can run any Flash.. put anything I want on my desk top and run all apple apps and ALL android apps! Oh and I have voice recognition and use it regularly. In addition I can use the devices as wi-fi hot spots! Hmm last I checked you can’t do half that with a Droid! But for those of you with less tech skills go with the Droid!

      Actually, besides running Apple apps I can pretty much do everything you listed on my Android phone. Voice recognition: check, WiFi hot spots: check, Flash: check, use my phone as a USB storage device: check, widgets/shortcuts/folders/wallpaper on my desktop: check. For the most part there are many Android apps equivalent to the Apple apps that I don’t need to think about running Apple apps on my phone.

    Good comparison indeed and I think android is really good, supports flash which iPad doesn’t.

      Support flash is nice; however, Adobe has just let it known that it won’t be working on Flash for mobile devices going forward.

    I too recently got my first Android device, running Android 3.0 and it’s good. I like the amount of customisation you’re allowed to do, the problem I’ve always had with Apple stuff is that you’re tied into Apple for just about everything.
    By the way, looking at the comments above, with regards to virus’s on Ipads, both iPads and Androids won’t suffer from viruses as such as they are unix / linux based. Unfortunately a Windows tablet would. As has been reported recently you can be at risk to malware on any platform, but that’s a different matter to a virus…

      I am of the impressions that all code contain bugs, and that goes the same with iPads and Androids. I guess I’m just pessimistic, but there have been bugs found in code that has been around for 20 years – and the code was commonly used. Bugs can be a gateway to viruses, and malware, which is why I can’ agree that iPads and Androids won’t suffer from viruses. Then again, time will only tell, and I hope you are right.

      I have liked the customization of my Android phone as well, and is one reason why I don’t have many Apple devices. If Apple would open up their devices a little more, I would probably have a few more of their offerings.

      I just got an Android smartphone, and I’m liking it. I always like devices that cater to me, instead of deciding what I should or shouldn’t have.

    I thought until now, ipad is still better than android base tablet. Million ipad users have been proved that.

    Don’t know why. But i’ll go for android, not iPad. Just a hunch.

      If I had a tablet, I would go with Android as well. I’m not a fan of Apple controlling what will run on their devices. I’d rather do that myself.

    Thank you for comparing the apps. I would still go for an iPad over Android tablet.

      I’m more particular about being told what I can run on my devices so I’d choose an Android.

    Well, for me apple simply rocks…why? because they make both software and hardware and this made their gadgets more controllable in terms of functionality and design. They don’t need third party company to produce the designed hardware.

    • Paul Salmon

      That could be good in that you know exactly what you are getting, and the software and hardware are made for each other. That is great for stability.

      The one negative that people don’t like with such a setup is you get what Apple gives you. For my desktop I chose all the hardware and software, including the OS, that was installed. I had complete freedom of choice with regards to the setup, and no company chose what I should or shouldn’t have installed.

    Thanks for the article, great post. I am looking at tablets (a bit slow on the uptake). Why would you say Ipads are relatively safe from viruses?

    • Paul Salmon
      June 14, 2011

      That is a good question, and one that I don’t really have an answer for as I haven’t looked into viruses for tablets. I’ll have to do some research to see if I can find out anything.

    I have not converted to Apple yet, you would think as a design student I would have by now. Still, I am looking at a droid tablet for myself and perhaps the Ipad2 for my spouse, why, because Ipad2 requires less thought to operate and is more intuitive. I can handle the process of implementing all the apps in the droid, some people are only made for the ease of Apple OS..

      I’m the same way. If I were to purchase a tablet I would probably go with Android for myself, but an iPad for my wife. I figured the ease of use with the iPad would be better for her, but then again, you never know.
