So it's finally out... the name for Apple's tablet has been announced - iPad. This also end a series of rumours that's lingering for the longest time.
Will the iPad kill the Kindle?
Not immediately in my opinion. Unless Apple is able to extend the battery life of iPad to 50-60 hrs I believe there's still a market for Kindle.
But Kindle is unlikely to be big in Asia as where I come from we are more into multimedia than just plain reading - which is what Amazon's Kindle does best.
And the plus point...just like a book, you will probably get your Kindle back when you lose it. That's not gonna happen for the iPad.
Below are some specs of Kindle vs iPad:

So watch out Amazon...the new kid on the "pad" is going to hit your Kindle real hard soon if you don't do something drastic about it...
