  • I love my iPad! It's super easy to use and it has some great apps for my toddler son! I chose it over the kindle fire because of the size. I liked the bigger size since I mostly use it for Internet and email!

  • I love my Kindle Fire. I use it every day! The only thing I don't like is the autocorrect ;). I don't need a camera (I have a cell) or a data plan since my phone can be a wifi hotspot. So it made no sense to me to spend the extra few hundred on an iPad. I actually do like the size; to me it's perfect.

    I do know that the ipad does not work with websites that use flash. For example, if you wanted to play a game on disney.com, all their games use flash so they will not be able to be played on the ipad. The ipad comes with a camera and the kindle does not. HTH

  • I can't speak for the kindle fire but I can for the ipad.

    I have an ipad and love it.  It does have great apps and my kids, 5 and 2, both love playing the million games that they have downloaded onto it.  Only the free ones of course!  My mom and brother in law both have an ipad too and they both love theirs as well.  My mom uses it everyday she says and my dad says she is always on "that thing". 

    Get the one with wifi and 3g so you can use it anywhere.  i log onto wifi at home and my parents and sister in laws, etc and for $10 a month I share the data on my iphone.  so, im not paying a lot for the data on it.

  • It all depends on what your needs are.  If you want more of a tablet that can be used as an e-reader then I would recommend the iPad, but if you want an e-reader w/ access to the internet I would go w/ the kindle fire. They are both great products, but just have different purposes.

    I can't answer your questions (I'm probably going to get a nook tablet eventually), but I remember you and hi! Your baby is adorable!

  • I love my iPad and use it constantly.  But I also love the price on the Kindle Fire.  Hard decision!  I have an iPad2, btw.  If you want to save $100 get the 2 version.  It's great and I've spent time with the 3 version in the store and really don't notice *that* much of a difference.

    I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.

  • I love my kindle fire. I'm an avid reader and that's why i picked the fire over the ipad( and the price difference).
