With apple the apps have to go through a certification process so only apps they authorise can be used. Some are free, others you pay for. Android which is the operating system of choice for other tablets, the checking is a bit less stringent so you can get more choice, but it may leave you vulnerable to virus attacks - rare, but there.. Most providers will put an app out for both Apple and Android products.1) Are certain programs or Apps. specific to Apples iPad or can other brand programs be used?
It dpends on what you mean, tablets require RAM, most have 256~512mb onboard, but are moving up. It does make the operating system run a bit quicker.2) I see that tablets can be had with different memory capacities. Is it best to get the most memory available or will something less than the max be good enough?
Don't by cheap and try before you buy.3) Display sharpness is important to me so what features or specifics should I look for in order to have the sharpest quality display?
This leads on from 3). Glass is a lot better on the touch screen than plastic. The 'plastic' ones I have played about with are cheap and generall not as clear/sharp bright or responsive as glass, but remember glass breaks easily.4) I believe iPhones have a glass display does the same apply to tablets?
There are three I would plumb for. The top in quality for me is apple. It has that really polished 'finished' feel. IOS6 (operating system) is fast and responsive and there are loads of apps out there. Next would be Samsung, they use Android, but the tablet qualities are excellent. Finally if you want a cheap one look at what ASUS produce, again quality is good. The Google Nexus is made by ASUS and is one of the cheap quality tablets out there.5) What would be the best made brand be that would give me the best tablet use experience?
Most important feature to me is screen, it must be glass. Next is the CPU, they are now on quad core CPU's and these are fastest, so stuff runs quicker and is more responsive. Storage for me is not so important, I use my Ipad for web surfing and thats about it. The rest is up to you. Get along to somewhere like Best Buy and play with their diplay models, my preference is:6) What would be a few of the important features to look for in a top quality and top performing tablet?
