Vergleich iPad vs. Android Tablet
iPad Android Tablet Comment
Very easy usage ++ (-) personal taste
Stylish appearence (e.g. thin etc) ++ + Asus is equally thin
Display resulotion ++ ++ I personally could live with 1280×720 HD
Charging with 5V (via USB power adapter / PC / external battery) + importatnt for mobile usage
Icons per Screen 20+4 56 ridiculous iPad restriction, but not decisive for me
USB-Host- for external devices (flash drive, card reader, 3G,..) ++ I love USB flash drives to quickly interchange my large video files
Open file system (E.g.: One video file stored on the device can be played by different Video-Apps installed) ++ I want to try (and even use in parallel) different Apps for the same purpose i.e. working with the same files
Support of Adobe Flash within the Web Browser ++ My QNAP NAS has a flash-based Web interface. This can be used on Android “as is”. Wheras on iPad I need an extra App (if available)
Quantity of usefull Apps ++ + Android is getting much better, but iPad is unbeaten

Durch das konsequente Abschotten gegen Industriestandards, die das Nutzen von vorhandenen Lösungen per Standard-Architekturen (z.B. Web-Browser mit Adobe Flash, externe USB-Geräte,…) ermöglichen, ist Apple gezwungen für jedes und alles eine individuelle propieträre Sonderlocke als “App” anzubieten. Womit die Chance besteht, eine eigenlich über Standards mögliche Funktionalität in propietärem Gewand “schicker” darzubieten.
