First, battery life. Is it rechargeable? You don't want to be replacing batteries constantly.

Second, games or app cost. I prefer the iPad or an android model mostly because there are tons of free educational apps. I've purchased one or two pricey apps, but the majority have been free or $1.99 or less. There's a Facebook page I follow called Good free apps for kids.

Good luck choosing!
Good points. I can speak to the Innotab. It uses batteries. We were going through them very quickly and switched to rechargable batteries and it's much better now. Good point about the game cost as well. Not sure how much the iPad cost (thinking around $300). The gamesbooks for the Innotab are an average of $17 not on sale. I purchase them when they go on sale for $9.99 which seems to be a lot. Using those price points, I would have to purchase 22 games to make the price "comparable". My son has 5 and that is all he cares to have.

I think age is a good thing to keep in mind along with how many games you think they would want.

I went back and forth between LeapPad and Innotab and, in the end, I went with the less expensive Innotab as I know these electronics seems to be becoming "obsolete" so quickly!

Good luck with your decision, OP. You can try out both the Innotab and LeapPad at Target.
