http://forums.androidcentral.com – Last week, i got an Android 4.1 tablet, but my brother is debating whether to get an ipad or android tablet and i wanted to know what the difference was, are you able to get the same apps? Is it the same or something? So, what's your opinion & selection, an Android or an iPad ? (HowTos)
