well currently i would choose an ipad 3 (the ‘new’ ipad), at £399, and not the ‘old’ ipad 2…
the new ipad runs at about 5 degrees warmer when playing graphic intense apps than the old one, which is noticiable, but not going to distract from using it at all – this problem has been completely overblown in the media, and should certainly not be a make or break factor for anyone
In terms of the cost of apps, well apps in both stores cost virtually the same (plus or minus a few pence), i think your mistaken for market research that shows that android users don’t buy as much paid apps as iOS (apple ipad) users – that’s not particularly interesting for actual users, but for app developers, i.e. developers usually slide towards iOS when making an app because they’ll get more downloads and / or purchases (if it’s not a free app)… but you won’t actually save anything if you use android.
the Samsung is a decent tablet, but, as many reviews show you, it’s still not comparable to the ipad, especially the new one which has the incredible retina display – you seriously need to go to an apple store to see the display to believe how amazing it is. the app store on iOS has loads more great titles both for free and paid apps, compared to the android store, although it is catching up.
the samsung 10.1 does support a sim connection. so does the new ipad, although that version is about £500.
on the iPad, there is the Pages app, which is essentially ms word (it’s compatible with it), for about three pounds. Remember that apps are much less expensive than actual applications on a desktop, so you might want to buy a few must have apps like angry birds in space or infinity blade 2, which are incredibly fun and amazing on the new display, that cost only a few quid. Android currently doesn’t have an equivalent app that can do as much, although quickoffice, which is about ten pounds, is close, it looks dreadful on a tablet. In fact many android apps are still not built for a tablet, and look horrible on the display, which is another factor to get the ipad aswell.
I’m being biased here (obviously), but i really would never recommend an android tablet that costs the same as an iPad currently, as you might as well just get the iPad. The only android tablet that comes close is the transformer prime, but again it still comes under the iPad (see prizefight link in sources), overall – these android tablets may have faster processors, but they’re still slower and sluggish to use in comparison to the iPad, as google’s android OS still has some problems that need to be fixed, for instance the cpu priority bug, which basically makes browsing through the OS, pinching and zooming etc. sluggish and unnatural as it doesn’t prioritze the processes like the iPad does. Overall, there is still no competition. if you really wanted an android tablet, I would wait a few months for new ones to be released, many of the decent tablets out there are still one or two years old.
The smaller samsung galaxy 7 (the 10.1’s little brother) is not even as good as the original iPad released in 2010.
