While I love Android, I still think the best tablet is the iPad. A lot of that has to do with what tablets are used most for. Games, media, web browsing, etc. the iPad is phenomenal at all of those things. There are a lot of apps for the iPad for music and tv for example that just aren't available on an android tablet yet.
I use my iPad 2 all the time (including most of my posts on here) and I just bought one for my daughter for Christmas also. Keep in mind I work at bestbuy and could get an Android Tablet at a discount.
"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
-Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775
