    For the moment I've got one of each so there are some issues I think I know but would like some help - so if I'm wrong about any of the below please let me know

    IPad - what I like - good battery life,can charge from computer

    but lack of Flash interferes at annoying times, also shuts down in the middle of a programs sometimes for no apparent reason - even when I've closed all other programs so I don't know if it's a limited memory problem but it shouldn't be and is pretty annoying.

    Iconia - much better at multitasking than Ipad but

    Can't use netflix (even tho they just came out with an app I can use on my android phone???), CAN'T CHARGE FROM COMPUTER - which means another charger to carry (or lose) which adds to the weight when traveling. The obvious - a lot fewer apps - missing some I find really useful like Flipboard, Zite and yoga amazing (a great free podcast that has multiple yoga classes).
