Kindle Fire HD 8.9 vs iPad 4 – Where You Can and You Can’t Notice The Differences

Kindle Fire HD 8.9 vs iPad 4: Here We Go Again


Do you remember that Amazon ad that popped up back in November and got pulled a short time after it went live? You know, the one where Amazon was comparing its 7-inch Kindle Fire HD to the iPad Mini? Well, that might’ve not been a clever ad simply because certain bits of information were inaccurate, such as the claim that the iPad Mini doesn’t come with stereo speakers – which it does. Don’t worry, I haven’t changed my mind and I still think that the Kindle Fire HD is a better product than the Mini, if you’re looking for a multimedia tablet, but I’m not really a fan of false advertising either.

Well, nonetheless, the ad was pulled pretty quick so let’s just say that it was an error that got fixed in time. The point is that Amazon has published a new ad, a TV spot this time around, in which the manufacturer explains where you might and might not see the difference between the iPad 4 and the Kindle Fire HD 8.9. Join us after the break for the details.

Kindle Fire HD 8.9 vs iPad 4 – Once Again From Amazon’s Point of View


The ad below is quite simple and implies that both tablets have a great display. The iPad 4 with Retina shines in terms of screen quality, and the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 looks pretty good as well. In fact, both gadgets have almost the same pixel density, and as Amazon puts it, you might not even notice any difference between the two, but you will notice the difference in price tag.

Whereas the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 sets you back $299 (actually for a limited time offer you can get one for $269), the iPad 4 with Retina display will cost you $499. So which one would you rather pick?
