    For one, android is a cell phone and uses applications to do anything.
    Ipad and other similar items are full fledged computers.
    Although both can connect to the internet, you can't really compare the two
    and say one is better than the other. That depends on your needs.

    Android is a Linux based OS that runs on smart phones.

    >Ipad and other similar items are full fledged computers.


    The iPad uses the iPhone OS, but doesn't make phone calls. It
    uses applications to do anything, just as other computers do.

    No comparison was asked for. An opinion of Android pads was
    requested.

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.
    In practice they are not.
