Got mine yesterday. I bit disappointed so far on the number of apps available, and the number of apps that even work on this.

Apple has a million more apps .

Well duh! The highest quality tablet apps will all be for iOS, pretty much for the foreseeable future, if you ask me.

Certainly for specialized apps like music, medicine and education, I believe Apples lead is far too great, and there's too many disadvantages regarding android tablet for developers.

First of all I just want to say the protection plan on the tablets are a joke. $200 for 2 years from Best Buy. lol.

Secondly, while I admire your tenacity and conviction, this simply is not true. The Android market vs Apple Market is something that has been closing fast. Matter of fact the Android smart phones have surpassed iPhones in number of units sold. And the apps are fairly close as well. On both platforms you will find apps not available for the other, but given Apple was out first with apps naturally there are a couple apps not yet on Android. And most of those few apps are in production or due out soon on the Android platform. Simply put, there are more people with Android devices now than Apple iPhone/iPad devices. New apps are generally being produced on both platforms as well.

Concerning development it is actually easier for the Android in many regards, less cost, and less headache to get your app out. Apple is much more proprietary. The only advantage you have with Apple is akin to the PC vs Console debate. A developer can optimize for the console as they know the specs of every X360 or PS3 will be the same and there is no heavy OS apps, etc. The only thing to consider are older generation apple tablets. With Android there is quite a variety of hardware, but in most regards it should be similar technology.

I'm going to have to complete disagree with what you said. Apps developed for Apple only have to be compatible with less than 5 devices (iPhone 4, iPad, iPad 2, etc), while in the Android market there is probably over 50 devices. I've already found out from personal experience that many apps in the Android Marketplace are only for a select handful of devices, not every android device. This does not even take into effect the performance differences between devices, because developers often tweak their own Android OS, making it more difficult to develop for on a wide range of products.

As far as quality is concerned. I'm playing games on my iPhone that make the games in the Android market look like games from 2 generations ago. Also, Apple has mastered the smooth scrolling between pages. Honeycomb is decent, but it doesn't feel like iOs imo.

Hopefully things improve quickly. Starting to rethink getting the iPad 2.

Respectfully, I do believe that as of may 22, 2011, for the specialty fields of education, medicine, arcade style games and music, iOS completely trumps android. While I do believe android currently has a numerical phone advantage, REVENUE from android marketplace is minimal compared to App Store.

More importantly, the tablet battleground is certainly held by iOS for the near future. If you have a honeycomb tablet you only care about tablet apps, not all of Androids smartphone sales.

Maybe Zune was the complete equal to some Apple mp3 players. That's what I kept hearing. However MS lost a lot of money competing with Apple's 1st mover advantage in that space and is defunct in the mp3 player market.

I'd just like to drop some input. Android tablet owner, and iphone 4 owner here

Honeycomb over ipad anyday! why so? I use both.
HC is much better for web browsing over the iPad, simply because I can actually see the whole web. Browsing with stock browser is actually better than safari imo. That said app market is deplorable atm, but with emulators, snes and ps1 games pwn any iphone game out there.
But iphone is far more stable. WHat I do hope happens for devs is they start to develop just for certain phones, such as Nvidia Tegra apps, reducing fragmentation. Also, devs should just set standards for phones, and certain phones should be excluded from compatabiliy. This seems more apple walled garden esque but the fact of the matter is, your 600mhz SHOULDN'T be running new apps at max, and you shouldn't expect that. you're using old tech and its your choice to stick with it. just like when I had my iphone 3G alot of apps did not work because they were designed for the new phones, and I was fine with that.

For the future I hope HC makes the experience close to Desktop OS like. Ice Cream sandwich, ehh I'm alright with it, HC at least segregates the market and allows devs to make certain apps for it. iOS is too.... eh too restricted. I want customization and freedom for a tablet as I browse the web alot. That said, I still recommend iOS for phones over android.

just my opinion on this whole debate. Don't mean to start any flame wars.
