Hi! I'm looking at getting my first tablet, and I've never had a smart phone, so: please bear with me if these are dumb questions ;).

I'm posting here because I'm hoping to get one that 'plays well' with my NEX5R, if there's one that's easier to work with for a newbie? I'd like to be able to use it for post-processing, and maybe for remote viewing/control - (is that an option?) We'd use it on trips, for backing up and viewing photos, so does that mean I should go with one that has a memory card slot?

Do people prefer Android, Apple or Windows in cases like this? which has the best tablet apps for pp?

Tablets with Wacom styluses are intriguing, but how much better are they for writing and pp than capacitive styluses?

Our main computer runs Windows, if that means anything. Budget is up to about 500. Thanks for any help you can give to get me off the fence!

I'll repeat what I stated a couple of days ago in the first response to you in this thread.  Buy an iPad Air, it has the best user interface, is simplest to use, is very reliable, has an excellent screen, has many option for PP, has very good keyboards to attach that make it as easy to type on as any laptop and has the largest user base by far, so if you have any questions on its software, it's more likely they can be easily answered.  Lastly, while it's very unlikely it will need repair, Apple has stores everywhere, unlike any other competing tablet manufacturer.
