Out of all of the tablets sold, the majority run on Android. Engineered by Google, the popularity of the Android OS is because it’s open source. That means it can be installed on a variety of hardware at no cost to tablet manufacturers. This is in strict contrast to the Windows OS’s, which is not open source and is licensed for distribution (at a cost to manufacturers) from Microsoft.
That means not only are Androids more budget-friendly, because of lower production costs and higher competition, they also have a larger selection of apps to choose from.
What about pricing?
Android tablets with USB ports tend to be under 500 dollars even including the top of the line models. This is completely opposite to Windows tablets which tend to start at 500 dollars and go up from there. If it comes down to having a smaller budget or if the availability of apps is important, the Android is the answer. When it comes to the lowest cost tablets with a full size USB, that would be the Toshiba Thrive AT105, the Dragon Touch R10 and the Prontotec 7.
Android Screen Size is Limited.
How common are standard size USB ports on tablets?
While Windows tablets usually include full USB ports, Android tablets rarely have them.
