Infographic: Apple iPad 2 vs Kindle Fire

Opinion-based social community SodaHead.com unveiled the results of a consumer poll detailing the public’s thoughts on Amazon Kindle Fire. More precisely, they wanted to see whether consumers prefer Amazon’s or Apple’s tablet.

The results suggest that 61% of respondents believe that the iPad will maintain its leadership position, while only 39% think that the new device from Amazon will catch “fire” and become the tablet of choice.

I could go on and on ranting about two products but I’ll stop here. The idea is to get the data for yourself from the infographic. Here comes…

    Well, I would fit in the young/single crowd and I still feel that an Android-based tablet is more for me over the iPad. I previously bought an iPad 2 and sold it because I didn’t feel it did as much as my VZW Thunderbolt.

    The only poll that matters is the market place. There were many who thought that Netbooks would not sell and that was 30 – 50 million units latter. Me, I never believed that the I-Pad would be successful (truth) the only Apple product I have never purchased and I owned a Lisa, which reveals how old I am.  The market will reveal what consumers will pay for and ultimately embrace.  I have pre-ordered the Fire, tech savvy and at the upper income level, so much for the poll data.  I know several people who have also ordered the Fire, the price point, functionality including the cloud and whispersync a winning combination.

    Before you think of getting a Kindle twinkle …err…Fire, here’s some limitations of it that you need to consider:
    - Kindle Fire doesn’t have microSD slot that, for example, Nook Color has thus it is stuck with 6 GB usable internal storage unlike Nook Color that can get up to 32 GB card in. Kindles are made to be almost like a “dumb terminal” of the past to make sure you’re tied up to Amazon’s storage on the web (for which you need Wi-Fi connection to get to) and you can only store content you get from Amazon there, not other files. Quoting Amazon on Kindle Fire: “Free cloud storage for all Amazon content”. Get it, Amazon content?
    - The stats of how long the battery can last (Kindle Fire theory is 8 hours) are taken with Wi-Fi off. You can only imaging how much less Kindle Fire battery will last if you use it to access content from their Cloud storage over Wi-Fi.
    - Amazon can spy on your web activity through their new cloud-integrated web browser of Kindle Fire.
    - VERY IMPORTANT – lack of microSD slot means that if you decide to root your Kindle Fire, you’ll have to root the actual device thus there will be no coming back. On Nook Color, you can make it boot from a “rooted” microSD card and if you want to get back to the original Nook you can just take out the card and reboot.
    - Kindle doesn’t support eBooks in ePub format that is the most used format in the world.
    - Kindle app store contains only Amazon approved apps and it does not include (and will not include) Netflix app that iPad has and Nook Color is getting thus again you’re stuck with Amazon content only.
    - Amazon confirmed that you cannot download anything to Kindle Fire when traveling abroad.
    I’d recommend waiting for a couple of weeks as Nook Color 2 is rumored to be released by Barnes & Noble.
