First... If you are an Android phone user, wouldn't you want to leverage the same OS and eco-system, using a familiar user interface and accessing the same Play store apps you've already purchased/use.
Secondly, after using an iPad3, iPad Mini, Surface RT, and Surface Pro, I settled on the Samsung Galaxy Tab3 8.0 as my Daily Driver Tablet. The form factor, weight, and display size are perfect. I have no issue spending hours surfing, e-mailing, posting, etc. on this tablet and really only head to my Win8 PC for "heavy work" and my phone (GS2) for full mobility.
