Here is an article that might help you..

Ipad vs Kindle vs Nexus

Basically Kindle is Amazons' Android Based tablet which relies on the Amazon Ecosystem for all its content. Nexus is Googles proper Android tablet. The iPad is the iPad.

I was as clueless when a group of friends clubbed together to get me a tab for my birthday. It's a Sumvision Cyclone Astro+ running ice cream sandwich 4. I've been using it since June and it does all that I need it to - email, browsing, Skype and it was about £85 from Amazon I think. It only has a front camera so you can't use it as general purpose camera, but I use a Canon for that anyway. There are plenty of tabs out there for £100 or less.

The operating system works differently from Windows but is still pretty intuitive.

All android based tables aside from the fruity one. If you are in the market for one also check out the Google nexus 7 and nexus 10. Both being sold at cost so a lot of hardware for the money and getting very good reviews. I'd have one now but they are sold out.

Added to which, people who use a tablet as a camera look really silly. I know someone who does it all the time with an ipad and I'm sure it's nothing more than a means of showing everyone that she has an ipad.
