Ipad mini or kindle fire?

The iPad mini launched and is priced at $329. I thought it was going to come in lower and I would get that for DH for Christmas.

Now I'm thinking of getting him the Kindle Fire. At least the bugs should be worked out in that by now.

What would you get?

Wow! That is pricey! It's more expensive than the larger Kindle Fire!

I'd get the Kindle Fire, we've had ours for over a year now and my inlaws have the ipad. There are a bunch of things our Kindle Fire can do that they dont have the app for of the app is better on the fire vs the ipad. And now that the Kindle Fire is HD with the camera, it's soo comparable to the ipad at a fraction of the cost.

I don't know anything about the Kindle Fire but for $329, I don't know if the iPad Mini is worth it when you can get the iPad 2 for only $70 more.

I too am surprise with the price. I honestly thought it would be comparable to the kindle fire. I have the original kindle fire and I love it. The new one has a camera, I would save $130 and buy the fire.

Re: Ipad mini or kindle fire?

We have both iPads and the Kindle Fire. There is no comparison IMO. There are more apps, tools and functionality with the iPad. The user interface is also much better, not to mention the better browser. I do agree that the price of the iPad Mini is a little high. It would be a matter of preference in terms of size because the price of the normal size is not that much more. If you can afford it, get the iPad.

For the price, the Kindle Fire is great for someone who just wants something smaller to browse the internet or occasionally watch a movie.

Good luck with your decision!
