Switch to andriod for tablet? Which one?

Hi, I currently have an iPad 2 and would really like an upgrade. I have liked iOS but I now know that andriods features and customizability make it the better choice for a tweaker like me. I do have some worries:
1) My device not getting the latest updates (not being support quickly)
2) Bloatware (I know nexus is stock)
3) Lack of apps designed for tablets
4) UI can freeze a little from what I've seen (might just be samsung Bloatware though)
What I like to do:
1) Gaming, casual to hardcore shooters
2) Productivity, fast device for word and google docs
3) Media, just browsing the web and watching a movie here and there
4) Test apps I'm developing, no more begging dad to let me run apps on his device!

What I'm looking at:
Nexus 9:
Pro: Fast (the Tegra K1 looks real nice), stock andriod (updates come quick and easy rooting)
Cons: Smallish screen ( I'd preference 9.5-10.5)

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro or normal
Pro: Big screen, decent preformancd
Con: Touchwiz, nuff' said

SHIELD
Pro: Insanely fast for price, game streaming
Con: Small, really small

iPad Air 1:
Pro: Fast, simple, lots if apps
Con: iOS and spendy

That's all but I'm totally open for recommendations. So should I switch to Andriod? And if so, what tablet?
