Amazon Kindle vs. Apple iPad
The Amazon Kindle is a device that allows users to remotely download and read books, magazines, and newspapers remotely. Recently, Apple has launched a device, the iPad, that allows users to do the same tasks as the Kindle, while allowing for web browsing and a few other light computing tasks. If you are in the market for an e-reader, you may be debating which device to purchase. Here are some points of difference to help you make the decision.
Price. The Kindle is significantly cheaper than iPad. You should consider what you want to do with your device. If all you want to do with your device is to read newspapers, magazines, and books, then the Kindle is probably the right choice. If you want additional functionality, then you might consider springing a few hundred dollars extra for the iPad.
Memory Capacity. The Kindle has internal memory of 180 MB (newer model has more). The iPad starts at 16GB of memory and goes up to 64GB.
Screen. The iPad has a color screen, the Kindle has only black and white.
Battery Life. Kindle lasts for 1 week on a single charge. The iPad has 10 hours of battery life.
Additional costs. The Kindle requires no additional service charges. The only additional fees are for downloads. The iPad can work in most locations if you upgrade to the 3G option. This requires a data service contract with AT&T.
Tips & Warnings
Determine how you are going to use the device before you make your decision. If you plan on only reading books, the Kindle may be a better option. If you want to do more general computing, you may want to buy the iPad.
