I see Amazon is expanding their kindle range. I was thinking about getting a kindle at one stage but we went with ipad as my kids love their games.
Kindles and iPads serve very different purposes. I have a Kindle e-reader and a Kindle Fire. I wouldn't read a book on the Kindle Fire (or any other tablet) unless that was the only way I could
read something, and I obviously wouldn't be able to play a game on an e-ink Kindle reader. I think they both have their places.
