PDF/epub contents indexing on iPad or Android tablet?

I've finally given up. I'm going to buy a glossy screen IPS tablet, regardless of the reflections.

Now my next decision is deciding between iPad 64GB (+64GB of cloud storage) or Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T 64GB (+64 GB SDXC card, once the Asus firmware update fixes the incompatibility with 64GB cards).

To me both screens are high resolution enough. Both are fast enough. I prefer Android (esp. with full Chrome + Firefox including their research oriented plugins) instead of iOS, but I'm willing to limp along with iOS + Safari, if my other requirements are fulfilled.

What I really need, is contents indexing for my 64GB+ worth of research PDF files, books and epub titles. Not just titles indexing, but full text contents indexing for a lightning fast search.

So, after having tried searching for PDF indexing in both Google Play Market and iTunes store and having found nothing, I'm turning you for help:

Does anybody know of a file contents indexing software (PDF + epub support) for either Android or iOS?

I'm not looking into buying a basic ebook reader for manual book reading.

I'm trying to buy a research reading / annotation / mark-up / search database tablet for my whole research files library. Kinda like my desktop research computer on-the-go, but in tablet form, with a fully indexed files contents database.

It this possible now on Android or iOS?

Or do I have to wait for the Windows 8 (non-RT) tablets, after all, such indexing software are available for Windows 7?

All help and ideas are welcome on this.
