    Hello!

    Im brand new here, just joined about five minutes ago and it seems pretty nice. I discovered this site through one of the sister sites I belong to and so far it seems great. So I currently have a literati, which is a type of ereader, but it stopped charging and wont turn on . So I might be getting the Fire, which seems great! My mom wants to get an ipad, which seems to be very similar, so she can get that and I can get the fire which is less expensive and seems great.

    I have high expectations for the Fire, but I don't think it will be an instant competitor to the iPad off the bat. The iPad has a wonderfully large selection of Apps available for it. But if your mainly looking for an eReader, something that works with Amazon's cloud services and can play movies, view pictures, browse the web... it will be great, and at a much cheaper price point.

    Yes, I do agree, but Im not really big on the apps, im more in it for the reading and the internet, with maybe a few games. It would be great to get some movies on it for long trips or to bring to things like my brothers soccer games so I have something to do . My mom wants the ipad more for work related things like using the microsoft office apps and emails as well as her facebook haha.

    Sounds perfect for you then I think you guys have researched it and made the correct decision for both of you.
