SARAH ROTMAN EPPS, Forrester Research Tech Analyst: You could buy four Kindle Fires for the price of one souped-up iPad.
And that one iPad would still have:
- 32gb more RAM than all four of those Kindles put together
- 100% more 3G capability
- About twice as much screen space
- Twice as many cameras
- 100% more microphones
- Hundreds of thousands of apps
But what I find interesting is that the Kindle Fire is clearly designed to consume content (Amazon’s content, of course), not create it. Which is exactly what the naysayers said about the iPad.
