Kindle Fire vs New iPad, Which is Right for you?

    Kindle Fire and iPad
    As Amazon’s first foray into the tablet market, Kindle Fire is widely perceived as the first real competitor to the iPad. Many people who want to buy a tablet just cannot decide which one to buy. Although the release of Nexus 7 makes the condition changed, Kindle Fire is still a great choice for most people for its popularity. So for those who want to buy one from Kindle Fire and New iPad, getting a better understanding of these two tablets is very important. Following we will compare these two tablets in every possible ways.


    First,the considering factor should be the price. At $199, the Kindle Fire will be a full $300 cheaper than the lowest-priced iPad 2. That's possibly an easier entry point for folks who are intrigued by the iPad but can't justify spending $500 for a portable computer when they already have a smartphone and a laptop.
    New iPad vs Kindle Fire
    Hardware cannot decide everything. That means the new iPad thoroughly creams the Kindle Fire in a strict spec comparison. However, not everyone needs Apple's dual-core A5X processor with quad-core graphics. After all, the dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP4 processor in the Kindle Fire is no slouch. A tablet's screen is one of its most important features, and the iPad's 9.7-inch 2,048-by-1536-pixel Retina Display can't be beat. But what if you want to slip your tablet into your jacket pocket? The Kindle's 7-inch (1,024-by-600-pixel) display makes it a lot easier to tote, but it also limits your screen real estate.

    Both tablets offer unlimited cloud storage for their respective eco-system content, so internal storage may not be a huge factor, but it's worth thinking if you need to load your own content. The Kindle Fire offers 8GB, while the iPad comes in 16G, 32G, and 64GB capacities. MicroSD or any other storage expansion options are not available on both these two tablets.

    As to connectivity, The new iPad offers 4G LTE compatibility, which gives it an edge over the Kindle Fire, but don't forget that there are plenty of solid and affordable mobile hotspot options that will bring the same capability to Amazon's Wi-Fi-only tablet. Both tablets are 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi compatible, but only the iPad supports AirPlay and Bluetooth—this is especially important if you want to stream music or videos wirelessly to your compatible speakers or HDTV.

    If you want your new tablet to own a digital camera, then the iPad's new 5-megapixel camera will be a big factor. The Kindle Fire lacks a camera, but the general usefulness of tablet cameras is still up for debate. For Battery life, Kindle Fire is likely to be longer on the iPad.


    More than anything, the software is what sets the Fire and the iPad apart. The Fire’s home screen is a dark faux-wood bookshelf; a search box is fixed on the top, and a list of media categories is spread out underneath it. Below that, recently used items appear on a “carousel” and take up most of the bookshelf, with the rest reserved for a scrollable “favorites” area, where you can pin apps, books, magazines, websites, videos, and even music. The interface is all about getting to your media quickly; rather than tapping on an app and then drilling down to the media you want, à la iPad, you can just click on the media itself. It’s an interesting concept, and it works well.

    While the Fire runs a heavily modified build of Android 2.3, you can still feel Android when you’re using it, in the jerky scrolling, in the ever-present software Back, Home and Menu buttons, and in the slightly modified notification drawer. The browser on the Fire, called Silk, has a feature that’s supposed to accelerate page loading: Popular pages are monitored by Amazon and cached on their servers, so when you browse to one of those sites, it loads faster. The problem is that the service doesn’t seem to work well; Vimeo user Sencha did a video comparison of the Fire’s browser with acceleration turned on and off, and the results showed that Silk doesn’t make much of a difference. For now, the iPad’s browser is just as fast as the Fire’s, but Kindle Fire now can upgrade to Jelly Bean which is considered as the best android system so that it can run faster on the web.


    The Fire will run on a modified version of Google's Android operating system. That means users will have access to several thousand apps in Amazon's app store for Android. The New iPad, of course, has access to more than 425,000 apps in the Apple Store. So, advantage iPad on this one.

    Amazon has, of course, optimized the Fire for its own content, like streaming movies, e-books and music. It also will come with a 30-day free look at Amazon Prime, the company's premier service that offers free two-day shipping of products from and free streaming from a library of more than 11,000 movies and TV shows.


    We can get the conclusion that New iPad is better than Kindle Fire,but its expensive price may keep many people from buying it. Whatever, Kindle Fire is a best android tablet with an inexpensive price.When you decide to buy one from this two,you should synthesizes each factor and make a wise decision.
