Finding the best Ebook Reader: The Apple iPad compared with the

If you want to be in for a good ebook reader, then I am guessing the fact that you have already taken a good look at all of them out there and you noticed that when it comes to the ebook readers, they are not many to choose from. Many of us are looking for the best ebook reader and if we get to compare the best 2 of them on the market today, we will be in the situation of comparing the Apple iPad and the Amazon Kindle. So which of the two you will decide to get? Let us just take a closer look and see what differences are there between them.

Readability: In regards to this chapter, both the ipad and the Kindle are doing great, but still there are some differences that are to be noted down. When it comes to the iPad, its screen is a very complex and good IPS LED screen that is backlit. The Kindle is not that fancy and it only manages to offer a standard screen with no backlighting options. But regardless of this, I am prone to giving the Kindle the win here, for it is way better than the Ipad.

You will see that the e-ink technology behind the Kindle will make the text look better than on the iPad and it will not cause that much eye strain when using it, as compared to the iPad. So yes, I have to give the upper hand to the Kindle here, for when we decided to read a book for round 3 hours, we never felt any eye strain, compared to the iPad.



This doesn’t mean that you can just hammer the iPad, for it still has a great screen. In many situations, it will perform better than the Kindle’s.

Ease of use: Both devices are just too easy to use. You can use both of them and connect to an online store in order to buy ebooks. But what is better about the Kindle is that you can take the books you want on it and be able to read them on any other device you want. You can only read them on Apple devices, which is a shame. Two thumbs down for that and a slap!

Cost: Well, the Kindle costs just $250 while the iPad is stacked between… $499 and $799. Ouch, you do the math.tter than the Kindle’s.

Ease of use: Both devices are just too easy to use. You can use both of them and connect to an online store in order to buy ebooks.
