Some people call the new Apple Amazon and not without a point. Perhaps the company is able to read better than anyone ever, listen to the user, just as do those of Cupertino, with the only difference that Amazon are not tied to any platform or previous way of doing things for decades. This is true on many fronts that both companies have opened, like music in the cloud, the sale of digital content, e-books, and even tablets. It has even been known that Amazon has bought Yap , a startup working on a speech recognition software as Siri.
Today focus precisely on the tablet, did you just put the usurping Amazon Apple as a mark of success in the field of electronic tablets? Although its beginnings were very specific with the Kindle, now the offer is amplified, and the Fire Kindle is a device that has gotten the attention of U.S. consumers, it is in this country where it was put up for sale today. Are your benefits? A low price, $ 199 (145 euros to change), and access to a rich platform digital content (music, books, movies).
Watching him, it is logical that everyone with thoughts of getting a tablet is at the crossroads to decide whether I should wait to buy a Kindle instead of a Fire iPad 2. In fact, statistics show conducted in this huge interest from users for the product from Amazon. In case you have not noticed, you’re reading a blog about Apple, which means we have already used many times and never iPad Kindle 2 Fire, so we will not discuss issues such as handling or interface, own review of a test after a few weeks we have not had. But I know the technical differences that a priori should serve as an indication when a decision. So we dare to give these eight reasons to buy an iPad 2 instead of a Kindle Fire:
If you bet on experience in the field of electronics: the first and perhaps most important difference between the two companies. It means confidence in a model, in a guarantee, in its operation, in support over time. Not to say that Amazon can not, just that Amazon has not done in electronic devices as long as Apple.
If you want diversity: 10,000 applications in the Android Market tablets compared to 100,000 for the iPad specific in the App Store means that the entertainment possibilities of finding just what we want, to have specific tools to our needs grow in the platform the block. Remains to be seen whether all these applications will have no place in the Kindle Fire, it should be noted that Amazon has created its own separate store.
If you want to see it: 7 versus 9.7 inches is not a difference to ignore. Based on our activities, maybe a 7 “screen is small or not we have left will allow us to enjoy as much as we would like a good movie, a good game, a good book or full-color catalog that we must teach our client .
If you want to see and be seen: the absence of cameras in the Amazon tablet is a negative which means inability to record video or photographic captures. Even worse if we have a conversation by video call.
If you want independence: Kindle Fire has no 3G connection, you can only connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi. For some users who want access to this site at any time can be a major drawback.
If you want capacity: 8GB Kindle Fire may be few if we have an extensive collection of apps and other material, the biggest problem comes from the fact that it provides expansion slots, so the 8GB are for a lifetime. The iPad 2 is offered in capacities up to 64GB.
If you want to play it safe: maybe we’ve heard about the political whims of approval of applications from Apple, although lately we have not heard of similar cases. But I would think one thing, it is said that Amazon lost for every $ 50 sold Kindle Fire, in this case has followed a similar policy to be followed by Sony with the PS3. And the reason for this decision is that your business is in the content, not electronics. So the question is, is that other platforms will be sneaking in the Kindle Fire as happens with iPad? This means that if Apple was criticized for being a closed system, most likely the Amazon even more.
If you have a Mac and / or iPhone: If you already have an apparatus of the apple, do not hesitate to purchase an iPhone for the simple reason that so you get the most out of icloud and synchronization in the cloud.
