Kindle is for reading books, but the iPad has far more apps such as aviation charts, calcuation programs, etc.

Why do Apple Drones want to keep comparing a mini tablet computer to a book reader? The cheapest iPad costs $370 more than the new Kindle. That's a rip-off for what it does. In reality its worth half or less what Apple Drones pay for it. You can buy a Windows 7 laptop with 5 times the computing power and many more times the storage capacity for that price.
