That's great. I am applying to work on next year's Census and they require use of Tablet and I own an IPad. So looks like I qualify LOL

Yeah iPad is a tablet made by Apple.
Plenty other makers of tablets around.

None. Ipad is just a brand of tablet.

The significant difference is the software each can run. "Most" tablets will be based on Android. All ipads run Apple's own software (iOS).
It should only be a problem if what you are doing requires a specific App that only runs on one or the other but if all they require is access to the Internet then either will be fine.
