Apple iPad vs. The Kindle

Monday, August 17th, 2009

There is much debate amongst techies on whether the rumored impending release of an Apple internet tablet/pad will virtually stop the Kindle in its tracks.  Some think that if they do release an ipad people will just download the Kindle application available already on other devices, such as iPhones, to supplement the vast array of uses it might come with, making it the ultimate multi-media, must have gadget of our time.

Let’s explore this more.

The Kindle, if you don’t already know, is an e-book reader.  It has a wireless connection that allows you to purchase and download books, magazine subscriptions, and newspapers.  This is definitely a great gadget for the ravenous readers who can’t get enough of their favorite literature.  It eliminates carrying around a bulky book.  They can just carry the Kindle and as soon as they are done reading one item they can immediately browse around for their next read and jump into it.  They don’t have to wait to make a trip to the book store or wait for their order to be shipped to their home.

These are all notably great things, but does it play your favorite song or movie?  Nope.  Can you check messages on your Facebook or Twitter account?  Nope.  Can you map out your next destination right from where you are standing by just typing in a couple words using their Maps application?  Nope.  More than likely, Apple will create something that will be able to do all that and more.

If that’s not enough, it is speculated that the Kindle application is more than likely going to be available for any ipad devices released by Apple, essentially turning their version of an ipad into an e-book reader in addition to everything else.  Another difference to take note of is the price.  The Kindle goes for $359 at most places and Apple’s internet tablet is projected to go for upwards of $699.  Perhaps that might make or break the deal for some, especially if a prospective Kindle buyer already has an iPhone or iPod Touch they are happy with.

Will Apple kill the Kindle with an ipad?  I don’t know.  Time will only tell.  One thing is for sure; Apple is capable of creating such a device.
