    Tablet: android or iOS?

    After staring at my blank touch screen for too long I've decided to swap out the carpc for a tablet. A major reason is that I just don't have the time for windows, I'm a Mac guy.

    Even though I'm a Mac guy I'm fairly interested in what android is doing.

    I have a MacBook Pro and a iPhone 4S which means I'm still contract tied unless I pay the cancellation fee.

    I'm still debating the merits of a 7" or 10" form factor. 7" if I do a semi-permanent I stall or 10" for in-home use.

    However the bigger issue I'm debating is which OS to go with?
    Android? Or iOS?

    A possible deal maker would be hands free but at the moment I've almost cut all my driving time calls. Another would be connectivity to view forums but even then I'm pretty happy with one hand driving and reading.

    Any opinions?

    If you want it to be flexible in terms of look, have widgets, have expandable, removable storage, etc. choose android. Choose iOS if you want the expanded app selection, but the touch interface on iOS kinda blows, imho, for in-car use. Can you get an iOS tablet with real GPS? My wife's got an Ipad 2, and I can see the attraction, but I need my customizability when it comes to in-car apps and interface.

    I have too much time and too little aggravation in my life, so I built a carPC. ;)

    android it's not even close.
    mainly because there is nothing on iOS that comes close to the power of tasker(even though tasker does have it's own shortcomings).
