if ipad 2 3g fits in the budget, go for it. there is no point in going for android tablets that god knows when they would get the JB update.

Yup, thats why even I thought of that, but I see that its 33K? He is more keen towards lower end of 20s.Nexus 7 might be ideal... But I dont want to even consider suggesting getting from indiatimes & the like.Another thing is he is relatively a newbie & a non-techie, and who would like to have the latest stuff, but would easily get convinced by someone to get even a gingerbread tablet & he will be happily using it - I hope you are getting the picture. Not saying, that I intend to do it. But I guess even ICS (or Honeycomb?) itself may not be that much of a bad experience. Ofcourse, main use would be browsing sitting on the couch.

I lost that argument unfortunately, otherwise, I might have even convinced him on the playbook ;)
