Kindle Vs. iPad

Kindle Fire is a premium product, offered at a non-premium price. It brings everything we've been working on at Amazon for 15 years - Kindle, Amazon Instant Video, Amazon MP3, Amazon Prime, Amazon Appstore, and Amazon Web Services - together into a single, fully-integrated experience for customers. We've also developed a new, faster web browser called Amazon Silk, specifically designed for Kindle Fire. It's a split browser that lives partially on Kindle Fire and partially in the cloud, taking full advantage of Amazon Web Services' incredible computational horsepower to accelerate web browsing - something you won't find in iPad's Safari browser.
Kindle Fire offers unmatched value, with all the popular digital content, but at a price that's $300 less. Take a look below at the Kindle vs. iPad comparison chart so you can see how Kindle Fire stacks up against iPad 2 (16 GB Wi-Fi model).

What People Are Saying
As far as the tablet goes, the Kindle Fire looks awesome. For $199 it's the highest-end device for the least amount of money we've seen." – Gizmodo
Consumers will see the iPad and Kindle Fire side-by-side…and simply ask 'why does the iPad cost at least $300 more?' They will look at the features - the comparable amount of content, the Kindle's million e-books, streaming TV shows - and pick the Fire." – Extreme Tech
Amazon's Kindle Fire is likely to be the first successful tablet not sold by Apple, and there are several good reasons for it: the low price of $199, the convenient, portable size of 7 inches, and a rich catalog of books, movies and music offered through Amazon's Web-based services." – Ars Technica
Amazon's ability to put so many features into the Kindle Fire and set the price at less than half that of the cheapest iPad has many analysts predicting Apple may finally have serious competition in the tablet market."
