Article by: Carlo Raphael Diokno – In a new video promo intended to lure more buyers, Amazon compared its Kindle Fire HD with 8.9 display tablet computer with forked Android to a larger iPad 4. Yes, they skipped the smaller and easier to bash iPad mini which sports the smaller 7.9-inch non-Retina display.
The goal of the new video is simple, compare Apple with an orange by focusing on the display quality whilst comparing the retail price. According to Amazon, the Kindle Fire HD is cheaper and offers the same display quality similar to the iPad 4.
For starters, the Kindle Fire HD is categorized as a budget-friendly tablet computer, much like the Google Nexus 7, Kindle Fire uses cheaper prices to attract buyers that will indulge on the company’s own ecosystem filled with mobile applications, music, movies and other content — all with tag price.
Amazon points out that the Kindle Fire HD is $200 cheaper than the iPad 4 with Retina display. It also noted that you will not be able to “tell the difference” except your wallet — of course.
The new video is to advertise the larger Kindle Fire HD. It is worth noting that the Kindle Fire HD with 7-inch display is still available via Amazon’s online store and few third-party online retail shops.
Speaking of smaller tablets, new rumors circulating on the web suggest that the iPad Mini 2, finally with Retina display, is coming to the market to replace the thin original iPad Mini with fewer pixels per inch.
