A friend of mine is looking to get an ipad for her children (no special needs issues, to my knowledge) but is a little horrified by the cost involved.  

She is aware of other versions out there, but knows nothing about any of them.  I have heard of various tablets, and am aware they are cheaper, but we got the apple ipad as it was the most beneficial for our son's autism (more variety of application in apple)

She's interested in some of the learning applications for her boys.  I don't know much about the other versions, but don't want to recommend she get the Apple, if there is something cheaper that would suit her needs.

Can anyone help?  TIA original.gif

I have a tablet running android and think there are plenty of great kids apps available. In fact the kids probably use if more than I do! DS 1 often comes home talking about an app that he has seen on a friends iPad and we are easily able to find it on Google market place. We love
Reading eggs/ Eggy words
Angry birds
Fish farts
Sprinkle
Cut the rope
Kapu forest.
I would be more thinking about how robust the case or glass is as I imagine that might change a bit depending on price.
