Not really an apple to apples comparison, look for an Android tablet with the same specs as an iPad and try to compare the pricing, you'll quickly see that an iPad isn't really that expensive.Phablets suck by comparison for watching shows on. iPads suck on the price score when you want to store stuff locally.
I recently (past week) bought both an iPad and an Android tab.
1) My wife is familiar with Apple and will get the iPad and the iPad is less PT technically so a win there. She also streams movies while in the gym which is fine on either.
2) I want mine for BitGym and I run it offline and the sheer number of trails and runs available mean external storage (SD card) is the way cheaper option. 128gb iPad is disproportionately expensive by comparison to the 32Gb version.
Those are my reasons for Android over iPad and vice versa. I use both effectively.
