I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think you are going to find a great deal of opinion here. I find more enterprise support for the iPad from Apple and with third party products. Android devices are too fragmented to make for a cohesive support profile. Even though Android can be customized to a user's complete satisfaction, the variables in doing so are significant. The iPad is standardized as far as iOS is concerned.

Firebar when you say the word fragmented I understand what that means that they have many versions of the android os.  

Have you tried Android tablet?
What tablet are you currently using?

Are you trying to determine my level of understanding on the subject?

I have used both and just have heard the word fragmented too much on the android side when it is really on both sides with features.  By me asking the devices that you were using I am just trying to see the generation of the device and model of the device which would tell me alot, thanks for your time and input Firebar.

The tablet I have used (I would never buy one) is the Samsung Galaxy tab. I used to have a Motorola Droid. By fragmentation I can give you an example. Each Android phone I help connect to our e-mail server is different. The process and sometimes the application are specific to the device and to the carrier. I have set up dozens and no two were the same. If these devices had straight Android without any carrier customizations, they would be more standard. I can walk an iOS user through the process from memory, over the phone and that is for three devices.

I agree with that statement about how there are multiple android phones.  But if you had a small company and could give everyone the same device and memory wouldn't be a problem you would still choose the iOS?

Yes. Absolutely. Doing so would save money on support costs right off of the bat.
