As we move forward into our future the world around us is advancing every day. A prime example of the advancement would be technology. First there were pagers, then cellphones, computers, laptops, and now there are tablets. A tablet is similar to small laptop that is easier for people to carry anywhere. Tons of people want to get a tablet but are not sure which one is better to get for themselves. In this paper we will compare the IPad 2 and the Kindle Fire so that the consumer may see the layout of each item and be able to decide which one is better for the consumer.

The IPad 2 weighs in at 1.3 pounds and measures in at 9.5 x7.31x.34(Apple.2011). It comes in either black or white with a 9.7 inch screen with a similar resolution as the Kindle Fire.

The use of LED backlighting allows for a thinner panel, lower power consumption, better heat dissipation, a brighter display, and better contrast levels. The Kindle Fire weighs in at a smaller size at 14.6 ounces with the size of 7.5x4.7x 0.45(Kindle.2011). Only available in black with a standard 7 inch with 1,024 x 600 resolution touch screen that has retina display which allows you to lay the Fire down and still be able to look at it from the edge and see everything clearly since the screen has a 178 degree viewing angle unlike the IPad 2.

When it comes to the operating systems and storage you may see a big difference between the two. The IPad runs off the iOs which is easy to navigate and is user friendly. When it comes to storage you have multiple options, including 16, 32, or 64 GB. Standard on the IPad comes with an application store which has 500,000 with 90,000 made for the IPad alone(Franklin.2011).

The Kindle is Android-based, running a customized version of the OS. The Kindle has a cloud-accelerated browser which leverage the computing speed and power of Amazon's web services...
