    Hi:

    I would like to purchase a iPad or Tablet for my 4yr old to use with educational apps.

    Which do you think is more suited for this and offers a better selection?

    Thanks!

    Mitch

    iOS has the better app selection.
    You can probably get a crappy Android tablet for cheaper if you are concerned about damage.

    Quality of apps vs. cost.

    I like Android, but for this iOS wins by a lot.

    Of course the other issue is will a 4 yr old tear up a tablet. I would get a used iPod Touch instead.
