Difference Between iPad and Android Tablet  September 8, 2017 – 05:35 pm

iPad vs Android Tablet

The release of the iPad has spawned considerable interest in tablets and a lot of companies are aiming to have a pie of the iPad market. More recently, Android tablets are also gaining popularity as possible iPad replacements. What most people do not know is that Android tablets are not the same, unlike the iPad, and is just a common name for a wide variety of devices with different specs from different manufacturers. The biggest difference between the iPad and Android tablets is the operating system since the iPad runs on iOS while Android tablets run on Google’s Android; both starting on smartphones and are now being used in tablets.

Since the specs of Android tablets vary from one device to another, there is no point in comparing them as they would not hold true for all devices. Let’s just point out the things that are common to all android tablets.

The biggest selling factor for the Android tablets against the iPad is Flash. Flash is the most popular software that is being used for showing online videos; aside from the other things it can do. The iPad cannot show videos from Youtube and a lot of other sites due to the lack of Flash. You also cannot install Flash in the iPad by any means.

Another difference between the two is multi-tasking. Up until iOS 4, multi-tasking was clearly absent in the iPhone. iOS 4 introduced a tweaked version of multi-tasking to both the iPhone and the iPad. It is tweaked because only some applications have it and switching to another application actually means that the other app gets ‘paused’. Android tablets have true multi-tasking where applications run in the background while you are using another application. There is also no coding requirement in order to take advantage of multi-tasking so the makers of apps need not bother themselves with that extra step.

Lastly, the iPad is still in the lead when it comes to the number of available apps; thanks to the long list of apps made for the iPhone. Android tablets do inherit some Android apps but since Android is pretty young, the number of apps is relatively low.
