Based on what you said your needs were, BOTH formats would work for you. Both have good note taking apps (hand written AND text) and both have various book options. I suggest you go to a local Best Buy or wherever near you & test out the various tablets to see what "feels" right to you.
I think Best Buy is on it's way out - what ever you buy use a credit card, that way you have some protection of your cash..
In your case i think you need to balance needs for expansion against battery time. My wife has a cheap £65 Android, recent plane trip it lasted a respectable 3 films, ipad2 lasted 6 films and 4 books.
Androids will beat iPads on additional expansion nothing but nothing beats iPads for battery life - rooted, jail broken or otherwise
