$200 Playbook vs iPod Touch?

Coworker asked me if she should buy the $200 Playbook for her 10 year old son. They were originally going to buy him a netbook, but she thought he might get more use out of a Playbook.... but for a 10 year old kid, if you wanted to spend $200 wouldn't your best bet be an iPod Touch? 

Way I see it, you can either have a crappy echo system with few games on a larger screen, or a fantastic list of software with a full functioning iPod Touch. The same is true against the Amazon Fire... unless you're buying it to read books, wouldn't you just be better off with an iPod Touch? 

Thoughts? Keep in mind, this is for a 10 year old.
