I don't really understand your question. You say the apple devices are using wpa2-enterprise, so why not have the android use the same.

Most wireless clients out on the market today support either WPA version 1 + TKIP or WPA version 2+ AES

WPA version 2 + AES is the most secure option to use + 802.1x using an external radius server for authentication or the local option on the WLC.

Also if you want to use N support then you need to stick with WPA version 2 + AES as the encryption since only this encryption supports N speeds.
