But not necessarily for the reasons you think. The problem with the Android tablets is a combination of OS fracturing and hardware variability. In other words, Android tablets' greatest problem is the overall stability and usability with associated desktop/laptop devices. The iPad has one glaring strength and that's the co-operative environment it enjoys between each Apple device including iPhones and desktop/laptops. Android has yet to develop such an environment and as such Android tablets, like Android phones, are force to live a standalone life where everything has to come in through manual external connections rather than automated synching of files, playlists and even updates. Sure, you have greater control and perhaps even greater individuality, but you also have more workload and more difficult methods of achieving the same results.
Hardware alone? Almost equal. OS alone? Almost equal. Coherent user experience? Not even close.
