The above solution of using WhatsApp is incorrect. The developers of WhatsApp have not enabled functionality of their app on iPad for whatever reason. It will only run on iPhone, even though its all iOS. To send messages from iPad to an Android device you would need to seek out another third party solution, and hope that your Android friend is willing to install it as well.

No, you can't send SMS messages. However, you can download Whatsapp and send free messages using data to an Android phone which has Whatsapp installed.

I've found the best way to send messages and photos etc is to set up two skype accounts. An iPad and one on my htc one. You can send most things between the two. For photos use a cross platform like Dropbox. Whatsapp doesn't work on iPads.
