Kindle Fire Vs Ipad 2 - Which One to Buy?

When you decide to buy a tablet computer, you always have to compare between various options on the market. In this article, you can find out more about comparison between Kindle Fire and iPad 2. It seems that iPad and iPad 2 are firmly settled in the hearts of many tablet consumers. Everybody wants an iPad, but there are many other tablets on the market almost every day. But do they have enough quality to suppress the Apple's industry of tablet PCs?


Amazon has unveiled very tempting price for its Kindle Fire, which is only $199. This is suspiciously low and when a buyer purchases a Kindle Fire, Amazon makes a loss, because a productions costs rumored to be $210, which makes Amazon to lose 10 dollars.

But, there is a back story with that, because Amazon expects that buyers of Kindle Fire will reach for other online products for Kindle Fire, such as buying or renting e-books, magazines, video games, movies and more. There is also a tempting annual Amazon Prime membership, for just $79, where a member can get everything for free.

While on the other side, we all know how does iPad 2 cost. The price varies between $499-$829, depending on memory storage. We can see that the gap between cheapest option of iPad 2 and Kindle Fire is very wide and you can save up to $300. This iscertainlysomething to think of, before buying a tablet computer.

Displayand Screen

When it comes to screen sizes and display graphics, it is really important to know what will you use your tablet PC for. For instance, iPad 2 has a bigger screen with 9.7 inches, than Kindle Fire with only 7 inches. By only, I mean that Amazon has outlined Kindle Fire for watching movies, besides reading and playing games.

If you want to watch a film, a little bigger screen than 7 inches would come in handy. However, both iPad 2 and Kindle Fire have almost the same resolution, but the pixels per inch characteristics is a little better at Kindle Fire than iPad's 2 (169 ppi vs. 132).

Features (Camera, Bluetooth, Battery, Storage)

Features are really important and iPad 2 has a big advantage here. The simplest argument for this is, that Kindle Fire has no camera, no Bluetooth technology, two hours less battery life (up to 8 hours; iPad 2 is up to 10 hours) and less memory storage (8 GB; iPad 2 comes in 16, 32 and 64 GB).

This is why the price is lower by $300, but would you miss a camera or Bluetooth on your tablet PC? It depends. A lot of people are using live video chats (like Skype) and this is a bit of a downfall for Kindle Fire, where you can't use this. Also connecting your other devices (mobile phone, laptop) via wireless Bluetooth is a huge knock, since it appears that people really like the technology.


I will not lose the words for iPad 2, since everyone knows it runs on Mobile safari. However, Kindle Fire has this revolutionary web browsing technology Amazon Silk, for which experts say that it is a revolutionary web browser, that will pave a way in tablets web-browsing industry.

It is really fast and intelligent. In short, it decides which internet tab has a priority, so it will download it first, so that you can continue your search easier and faster than ever before.

It is up to you

When it comes to decision making, it is up to you which one you will buy. Some will be looking for cheaper versions, but that does not exactly mean it has no quality. Both, iPad 2 and Kindle Fire have quality, but there are some features that Kindle Fire hasn't got.

But if you overlook that it has no camera and Bluetooth, this is the best possible option yet on the market. There is more about Kindle Fire than just Amazon Silk and touch screen. The price is very tempting and I can't wait that it comes out.
