Help! I am in a dilemma! i currently have an iPhone 4s, which I am happy enough with. I dont have a mac, just a laptop/pc.

I want to buy possibly an iPad, mainly for use in my one man band performances, as a way of displaying lyrics of songs. I have seen it in operation doing just that and it does it very well.

However Im wondering if I should get a Samsung Galaxy tablet instead (which one? dont know!?). Im wondering if the whole apple thing is over rated and over priced. If I got the Samsung , then at next phone upgrade I would probably change to the Galaxy phone too. I hate the idea of having to use iTunes to put music from my laptop on my iPhone.

I would be going for an iPad2 which are currently €399. I suppose Im looking for general recommendations.......iPhone v Galaxy Phone, iPad v Galaxy Pad, having to use iTunes for transferring music (I prefer WMP)v not having to....! Or is Apple so bl**dy good that its worth the price and the iTunes hassle??

Im totally confused, please give me your opinions!

thanks

People in the business will tell you that currently almost all SMS-sending malware, mobile botnets, spyware, and destructive Trojans are targeting Android devices.

That isn't to say that Apple iOS isn't vulnerable - it is - but at the moment it isn't suffering anywhere near as much as Android in this respect.

And finally.....I've also read some good reviews on the Google Nexus 10. And thoughts on it v iPad 2?

thanks

iPAD for sure. iOS may not be the best OS for tablets but android sucks as a tablet OS. iTunes alone cannot be the reason to not choose ipad.
