We do know that Amazon is building the kindle app for ipad and other tablets and is set to take over the market in the second part of 2010.

It is made official on Amazon’s official page where it declares that the app is coming out for all tablets while quoting iPad in particular, which lets us think that ipad is being treated as a special tablet by Amazon since it competes with Apple’s iBookstore.

Features are what the users are concerned about at the end of the day. If, as a user, I find the Kindle app to be better than the iBookstore, then that will be the one living on my ipad.

 Amazon promises that apps will be “tailored to the size, look and feel of your tablet computer,” with customizable background, brightness and font. The kindle will have a “Basic reading mode” which when shut off, will let you turn the pages just like a regular book, a feature iBookstore would have too.

An interesting feature of kindle enabled tablets is Whispersync, has the ability to start reading on one device and continue on another with full access to the Kindle store. Did the iBookstore take a note of the Whispersync, I am sure they did.

Wonder if iPad would make Amazon’s kindle go out of business? Analysts say chances are bright. Apple comes with a reputation to make things bright and beautiful, which appeals to people in general. iPad is much more than just a book reading device, a full scale computer which appeals to most of the users. With the right pricing it does offer a punch. As a user, given a choice, I rather spend my money on a multitasking hardware rather than something that lets me read only books.

  1. I was on the fence for months before I finally decided to order my Kindle 2. I had been reading such mixed reviews about the device and about Amazon’s customer service that I simply could not decide about the purchase. This review is for all of those people, like me, that cannot decide if they need a Kindle 2 for themselves. Well, struggle with the decision no more and ORDER IT! I am so happy with my Kindle 2 and I look forward to reading it every single day. All of the problems that I was worried about are not problems at all. Downloading books is easy, the screen is NOT too dark, the font size is adjustable and the Kindle customer service support is terrific. I had a problem with my Kindle 2 and I was instantly connected with the most helpful representative. I did not have to wait on hold and the problem was solved in no time. I have made the highest recommendations of the Kindle 2 to my friends and family and will continue to do so in the future. I can say with absolute confidence, if you order your own Kindle 2 you will not be disappointed! http://bit.ly/crMMcP
