Difference between Ipad Mini and Kindle Fire HD

Apple is still the market leader, but the release of several new tablets has made things very competitive. And now it has become really difficult for the consumers to make a choice. When buying a tab, make the list of options as short as possible. After that, make a comparison between different tabs to reach the final decision.

After great success of iPad, Apple has launched iPad Mini. The new 7-inch tab is although not as quick as its big brother, but it has made a huge impact due to its competitive price. Kindle Fire HD has also made a nice impression. There is a long list of differences between these two tablets.

As far as the price is concerned, the Apple device is more expensive. Kindle HD is available in two sizes, while iPad Mini has only one standard display size. The Amazon device holds the edge when it comes to resolution. Even the 7-inch Kindle HD Fire offers resolution of 1280×800, which is way better than iPad Mini’s resolution of 1024×768. The 8.9-inch model of the Kindle HD has even better resolution of 1920×1200.

The iPad Mini users, however, can enjoy a bigger collection of applications. Including movies, music and books, the Apple users have so much to enjoy. Amazon App Store, on the other hand, does not have much to offer.
