    The iPad will be a leader for many years to come. Apple’s brand name is just too strong… for now.

    I’m a bit surprised that these ereaders are still out there and being sustained. I don’t think it can compete with alternatives because the prices are still too steep.

    – 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 Fire doesn’t have a camera.
    – Kindle Fire has about 70% less usable screen area than iPad 2.
    – 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 outside US
    I’d recommend waiting for a couple of weeks as Nook Color 2 is rumored to be released by Barnes & Noble soon.
