Android devices are generally less expensive as an option for tablets mostly because Android, as an open source operating system, offers widely available “flavors” for every organization’s needs and there’s a lot more options when it comes to hardware. From the low-end 1 GB Ram tablets in the $80 – $100 range, all the way to the big brands.
If you are from a public organization such a school district, university, or government, you know money for hardware and software can be scarce.
