Check out the home page of Amazon, and you will find a catchy ad that shows how much better the Kindle Fire HD is than the much hyped Apple iPad Mini.
The comparison gives us a good picture of the things you would miss while buying an iPad mini instead of Kindle Fire HD.
Is it right for a company like Amazon to post such an ad? Evidently, there is nothing wrong with it. Kindle Fire HD has given Amazon triple the expected sales and as far as Amazon is concerned, it was the right thing to do.
The Kindle Fire HD is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 processor with a TI OMAP 4460 chipset. It has 1GB RAM and comes in user’s choice of either 16 or 32GB of storage space.
The iPad Mini runs on Apple’s dual-core A5 chipset, which isn’t quite as juicy as the Kindle Fire HD. The newest member of the iPad family is fronted by a 7.9-inch LED-backlit IPS display, which operates at a resolution of 768 x 1024 and has pixel density of 163PPI.
Meanwhile, the Kindle Fire HD has a 7-inch IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen which displays 800 x 1280 pixels and has a pixel density of 216ppi.
It displays 16 million colors and supports up to 10 finger multitouch input, making this the Optimus Prime in the screen supremacy segment.
Software as everyone knows can’t be compared as such as both use different operating systems. Head for the page here.
