Multi-functional Capability

Multi-functional Capability When you buy a Kindle, what will you be getting? Essentially, it is a reader. Yet, another dedicated device that you will have to carry around. With an iPad, you will have a companion that will be able to do almost anything. You can play games, watch movies, open documents, browse and so much more. Did I mention that the iPhone has zillions of apps (140.000 and counting, to be exact), which you'll be able to use for your iPad as well? How great is that!


The Screen

The Screen The iPad without a doubt, has the better looking screen between the two. It's colorful, sleek has a multi-touch screen and so much more. Compared to that, the Kindle looks quite ordinary I think.



Compatibility The iPad supports ePub right out of the box. It is compatible with books that are sold through a standard format through any of the channels. You know what? Something tells me that Amazon is going to be making a little announcement about ePub soon.


The IBooks Store

The IBooks Store Personally, I love traditional, tangible books and can't imagine reading them any other way but if you don't mind e-books, this application will take your iPad experience to a whole new level.


The Overall Experience

The Overall Experience In a Bezosian way, Kindle offers a good functional experience to the readers. However, Apple on the other hand goes beyond this and makes the experience fun and cool. Also let's not forget, on the iPad, you can swipe through pages. On the Kindle, you have to click a button. Convenience, functionality and fun. What more could you want?


The Economics

The Economics Publishers are concerned about the price erosion with Amazon who has $9.99 pricing. Amazon’s seventy percent revenue share take has put them up in arms. However, Amazon reversed the revenue share to match Apple’s thirty percent, it still requires the publishers to cut prices and offer big discounts.



Marketplace Apple already has one hundred and twenty five consumer store accounts and twelve billion products that have already been downloaded. Enough said!


How Many Kindles Have Been Sold?

How Many Kindles Have Been Sold? Amazon is yet to release exact numbers of just how many Kindles have been sold. I believe this is because they know Apple has sold way more and the number sitting beside them would not look good.


The Price

The Price I cannot help but talk about the price. For just ten dollars more than the Kindle, consumers will get a good ebook reader and much more. I would definitely pay that extra money to get a device that will do what the Kindle does plus so much more!


The Apple Factor

The Apple Factor Apple is to electronics what say Jimmy Choos or Louboutins are to shoes. It's the brand that many pick even those that are not how do I put this...technologically learned enough to use their products. I’m sorry, Kindle, but it seems that Apple just has the "it" factor and you don’t.

Those are my 10 reasons why the iPad is way better than the Kindle. Now, do you see it? Do you know about other reasons why iPad is better (or worse) than Kindle? Please, share.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

KINDLE and IPAD should NEVER be compared to one another . . for heaven's sake . . Kindle is a READER, while the iPad is a Multimedia Device that acts as an alternate to a Laptop . . comparing the two would be like comparing a PSP with a telephone but comparing an iPad to an Android Tablet . . i'd undoubtedly go for the Android tablet . . it has more free apps, better personal customization and big price difference(there are tons of china tablets that are as good--some even better, in terms of specs, than the iPad)

I have been boycotting Apple, Inc since April of 1988. No matter how popular there stuff is I will always choose their competitors. Go Amazon and Gooogle and Microsoft!!

I don't understand why the iPad is considered a competitor for the Kindle. They're completely different products and can't really be compared because they're not made for the same uses. But I'd rather spend my money on the Kindle than the iPad because the Kindle offers me something I don't already have - which is the ability to read for extended periods of time without eye strain. The iPad has an ebook reader, but it's exactly the same as reading ebooks on your computer and it will give you a headache just as quickly. The iPad should only be looked at as a competitor for laptops, not designated ebook readers. And as I already have a laptop which is just as easy to use as an iPad (I guess an iPad would have an advantage of being able to be used while standing up, but who does that anyway?). Overall, this article is comparing apples and oranges.

I soooo want one! :(
