  1. No, the ipad 2 is a a bit of a disadvantage spec wise being as the cameras are lower quality, however the app market for apple is a bit larger than the android market.

    in all honesty its whatever you prefer, ipad to me just feels like a big ipod touch whereas the galaxy tab 10.1\motorola xoom are more like handheld computers

  2. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  3.
