Why the Kindle is Better Than the iPad

by Michael on July 25, 2011 · 0 comments

Earlier this year, I bought my wife an Amazon Kindle for her birthday. Not long before that, I picked up an Apple iPad. Given that I just wrote a post professing my love for the iPad, I thought I’d balance things out with a tribute to the Kindle.

In short, the Kindle kicks ass as an e-reader. Yes, I know that the iPad has a number of e-reader apps including iBooks as well as the Barnes & Noble Nook app and – yep, you guessed it – the Kindle app, but it simply doesn’t compare.

The iPad’s interface is glossy and bright and patently non-book-like. And yes, the Kindle commercials are right – you can’t read it in the sun. Sure, the iPad is great for web surfing, games, and video, but it kinda sucks for reading a book.

So if I were to put together a list of my top five uses for the Amazon Kindle, it would look like this:

  1. Reading
  2. Reading
  3. Reading
  4. Reading
  5. Reading

In fact, it’s so good for reading that I’m going to buy one of my own so I don’t have to share with my wife.
