I'd say iPad since he's got an iPhone. Would be more familiar to him.

iPad mini is probably pretty cool, probably what I'd get myself if I went that route, but seeing is that he already has an iPhone, it would make more sence for him to have something bigger.

iPad. Android tablets are no match when it comes to quality and selection of apps. The hardware may be very good on Android tablets, but that isn't enough.

Also, jailbreak it and get ProTube HD from Cydia; way way better than the stock YouTube app. :D

I bought an iPad2, sold it, bought a Galaxy Tab 10.1, sold that, bought a Asus Transformer, sold that, and bought a iPad 4.. I like how the iPad works and most of the apps I use, work better on the iPad.. Also, the screen on the iPad, is better on my eyes from some reason.

the clarity difference is HUGE for my eyes. after having the ipad 3 with the retina screen, everything else now is blurry and gives me a headache after 10-15 mins on an ipad2 and nexus 7 when reading text.

I love the full sized iPad but find it to be a bit on the heavy side. I hope that the next couple of revisions make it light so that it is more comfortable to hold for long periods.

Assuming there was a Retina iPad Mini, I'd go with that because of the weight. If weight wasn't an issue I'd definitely want the full sized iPad. Right now it seems like you have to compromise between weight and display resolution.
