Kindle Fire Vs iPad: Is Amazon Hoping to Crush the Apple iPad?

“While Amazon’s latest ad offers little in the way of specific details, it does relay the message that the starting price of the Kindle Fire HD is $200 less than a similarly equipped iPad.”

“In actuality, Apple’s iPad bests the Fire HD’s display in both size and pixel density, with a 9.7-inch panel boasting a resolution of 264 pixels per inch. As noted by BGR, Amazon’s tablet uses an 8.9-inch LCD built at a slightly lower-resolution 254ppi pixel density.”

As you can see, the Amazon commercial is a bit misleading.

How do you feel about where the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad stands right now? Do you get the feeling that the Kindle Fire HD is closing the gap?
