I'd go with user-friendly if your crews are not tech savvy.

Android the ipads are toys compared to what can do with the galaxy tabs. Only down side is a lot of the time you have to wait abit longer for the apps to come out on android

I personally use a iPad mini for business use and its great. I can't give an opinion on android as I have never used their products. I've always had apple everything. But the iPad is great for what I do. Billing and all that stuff.

"I" stuff just works. No fuss, no learning curve. Android takes a little more to make it "work". If you have young guys, Android. Salty old dogs? Consider Apple.

I would look into some of the Chinese brands if you are interested in trying an android. I picked up a Ployer Momo7 for 110 shipped. You get a much nicer tablet spec wise comparable to 500 dollar High Street brand. We all know companies like Apple produce the Ipad for dirt cheap in China.
Having said that, not a big fan of Android tablets I have used.

Personally I'm Android. Wife wife has the same phone as I do but she has an Ipod Touch for her music and she plays games all the time. Guys, if you wife is like mine and addicted to Candy Crush....well let's just say she found a new game to play.....

Like was said above, most stuff comes out for Apple first...this game should be out on Android pretty soon from what I hear.

Apple's products do what they need to do well and they do it simply. I've used both and I'll never go back to anything Android.

That said, I just bought a new laptop with Win8 on it and I might be inclined to try a Surface tablet if I had a chance.
