Which one do you all think is the better tablet, the Google NExus 9 or Apple iPad Air 2? Are they the best two tablets you can get?

WHEN you already 'own' a lot of paid-for Android apps, Google books, movies etc because you've had Android phones for years, what good is an iPAD?
Vice versa: if you own iPhone iOS stuff, do you want to hunt it all down again, pay again so you can see if you like it on a Nexus 9?
If you love Garageband and some other iOS exclusives, NOTHING in the Play Store will make you like the Nexus 9.

Is the Nexus 9 the best Android tablet? I do not know. I haven't used one. I used maybe 6 Android tabs of the 5,000 models available...
Is the iPad Air 2 the best iPad? For sure ;)

I find the last sentence of that review odd: "if you just want to curl up on the couch with a, well, go to eBay and find yourself a Nexus 7".

Why on Earth would anyone want to watch a film on a 7" tablet when they're in the comfort of their own home? When I want to watch a film, I fire up my, rather lovely, Sony TV, not a bloody 7" tablet...even one with a nice screen.

The screen on my TV seems, to me, a far nicer viewing experience than the one on even my laptop, especially for lengthly video conent. Maybe I'm odd...

Same goes fcor most things at home. Why a tab where you have (probably) a laptop with a real keyboard, more storage etc...
