I personally LOVE android. Just stuck a new ROM on my phone for something different. Widgets are pretty awesome as is live wallpaper. Pretty much anything you can think of can be done on an android. I haven't got a tablet yet but will pick up an android one for sure this year. ASUS is rumored to be coming out with some nicely specced ones at a very reasonable price soonish. Whatever you get, make sure it has Ice Cream Sandwich (the latest OS version) on it.
Now I do recommend Apple for nontechy people. But for me getting an apple would be like driving a Camry instead of my fun turbocharged car.
