It's the iPhone, no doubt about it.
iPhone 4 has crisp crystal clear screen and there are 100 of USMLE books and apps that are not available in other platforms

Default What is the best mobile for USMLE studying?

Used Nokia , Blackberry , Android , windows Mobile . but eventually got iPhone 4 cuz of it's style and elegance. One month before that I got iPad from USA , imported specially by my Friend for me. Used medical books , PDF , .chm , dictionaries and then Jailbroke it to realize that there is Huge number of books and resources available for it. The reading on these iDevices is pure pleasure and very swiftly u can look something in dictionary then go back to the book then go wikipedia or any other Internet site seamlessly n effortlessly.
So being a Doctor and A Taste for Hi fashion n style , I would recommend iPhone 4 to all the Doctors.
Just take some friends top Blackberry and another one's iPhone and compare. You will get to know what am talking about.
Hope this post helped my Fellow Colleagues. If u need any books or software for iPhone 4 , I will be more than honored to help my Doc colleagues.

Have a Nice Day Friends.

In my opinion the question is wrong, IOS and Android OS both give their users almost the same features which a medicine student would use (ebooks, apps "since that most Developers are trying to make their programs on both platforms" ,etc) . The question should be based on the Hardware not the Software ( e.g: Laptops, mobile, 7inch tabs, 10inch tabs,...)
