Tablets have brought about a revolution in mobile computing. Being more powerful than a smartphone and having better mobility than a laptop, makes tablets a very friendly device. However, not many tablets were runaway hits. In fact, only a handful of them made an impact.
When you talk about successful tablets, the iPad 1 and 2 cannot go without a mention. These were powerful and gorgeous devices with very rival tablets to challenge them. The Amazon Kindle and the Samsung Galaxy series of tablets have tasted some success in the world of tablets.
The iPad 3 could not have done anything wrong after the rocking success of iPad 1 and 2. The upcoming Amazon Kindle Fire HD seems to be the closest rival to the iPad 3. Let’s make a comparison of the two high-definition devices.
The pricing of a gadget is one of the most important elements that will decide on its success. The Kindle Fire HD that features a 7-inch display will be selling at $249 and $199 for its 32GB and 16GB respectively. Models with only Wi-Fi option can be bought at $299 for 16 GB and at $369 for 32 GB. Models with 4G option will cost $499 for 32GB and $599 for 64GB.
On the other hand, iPad 3 is expensive especially when you get one with a 4G option. The tablet sells for $629 for 16GB, $729 for 32GB and $829 for 64GB respectively.
The Operating System
The Kindle Fire HD tablet features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which is not the latest Android operating system. The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the latest OS offering from Android.
The iPad 3 runs on the iOS version 5.1.1 which is also the operating platform for iPhone 4S. This iOS operating system makes synching and sharing easy. The device is now less dependent on content transfers via USB.
The Kindle features a dual-core processor designed by Texas Instruments known as OMAP4 4470 and is 1.2GHz. The iPad 3 on the contrary has dual core processor called the Apple A5x, that runs at a speed of 1GHz.
Not much is known about the RAM capacity of the to-be-released Amazon Kindle but the iPad 3 features 1024MB, DDR2 RAM.
The Kindle will start with its 7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800. It’s 8.9 incher will be launched in November with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 and 254 PPI. Amazon also claims that the display will have no glaring problems as the screen has no ‘air gap’ between the glasses.
iPad 3 features a retina display with 2048 x 1536 resolution in 9.7-inch screen. It features 264 PPI that seems to be better than the Amazon Kindle.
Both the Kindle and the iPad 3 offer 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB storage capacity.
The Kindle features only one camera in the front for video chatting with the in-built Skype application. It is believed that the camera is high definition one. iPad 3 features front and back camera (5 MP camera in the rear side and a 0.3 MP in the front). The camera is capable of shooting 1080p videos at thirty FPS (frames per second).
iPad 3 features the Wi-Fi only models or the 3G/4G compatible ones. Its wireless services are available in multiple carriers in Europe and North America.
It’s a tie
It would be a tough choice to decide on which one to buy when you plan to buy a tablet after the Kindle Fire HD is released. If you are looking for a refreshingly new machine, go for the Kindle Fire HD. On the contrary, if you want to boast an Apple product, then you would do well by choosing the iPad 3.
