    Android is what you want for sure. It can play videos with out any problems and it can even play .iso videos there are a ton of apps to play videos. Yes it can be hacked its called rooting and when you root your have total control over your device. You can download pirated apps but you dont need to because most of the apps in the market are FREE unlike the apple store and if you install amazon appstore they offer a paid app for free everyday which once again apple doesnt oh and the getjar market also offers paid apps for free. If you want a tablet that you can compare to the ipad looke at the galaxy tab 10.1 it is a very nice tablet and its cheaper then the ipad.

    I hope you can see why Android is better then apple and what i have told you is just the tip of the iceberg

    hmm .. good
    so what you are telling is that MOST of the android apps are free ?
    yeah i have looked for samsung galaxy .. it is cool .. i am waiting for some good deal .. may be price cut

    one more think that i want to ask whether rooting involve soldering or something like that or is it easyprocess ?
    and can we update tablet to latest operating system .. from gingerbread to sandwich icecream for example ?

    Yes most of the apps available for Android are free. The Android market is the largest free appstore in the world (Android Market now the largest free app store in the world) Rooting is usually just a software hack so no need for soldering or changing hardware at all. If you want to have the best chance of getting software updates buy a high end one like the samsung galaxy tab 10.1

    I have been viewing tablets .. i have seen three inspiring tablets ..

    1. SAMSUNG Galaxy TAB 10.1
    2. ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime
    3. SONY Tablet S

    which one of the stated tablets is good enough in all aspects with least available price
    Sites have reviewed ASUS quite high .. but i have doubt about the company scene in open market .. what is surety that ASUS keep on following tablet market ..
    samsung is quite good but it lacks HDMI , SD card slot and USB port
    sony is good .. but i am not quite convinced with sony ..

    so battle remains between ASUS vs SAMSUNG
    please guide me being a senior which brand to go for .. samsung is market leader ..

    1 thing more .. can you please quote prices of samsung and asus

    both samsung and asus make good tablets and and i think you would be happy with either one of those but like you said samsung is the market leader and they are the market leader for a reason also you might want to check out this website Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Accessories: HDMI, USB and SD Card Adapters both tablets will cost around 450 to 500 dollars.
