Most of the Apple Competitors use this feature as their major weapon while competing.

You can enjoy flash games or browsing various sites running on flash using your Kindle Fire but not on Apple iPad 2.

#6. Reason 6. USB Drive Support and Doc Viewer 

Kindle Fire supports USB  drive mode, as you can use USB data cable connecting both Kindle Fire and PC which allows you to share the documents between them, while Apple iPad 2 is having some hacks to do this. The Document viewer in Kindle Fire reflects our PC-Document viewer experience, as these file formats ranges from Word Docs, PDF, Power Points as well, you are having some special apps to do this in your iPad, but again no straight compatibility makes it stand behind the race.

8 Comments to 6 Reasons: Why Kindle Fire is better than Apple iPad 2

  1. what would really convince me to buy the Kindle Fire over the Apple iPad 2 is simply its price. Kindle Fire offers just about the same if not all capabilities of the Apple iPad 2. besides, almost everybody is already going gaga over whatever Apple is offering, just because. 🙂

    but really, i find the Kindle Fire as enticing as the Apple product and for a relatively lower price. cool!

  2. The USB and file format issues with iPad 2 make me lean in favor of the Kindle for now. I don’t understand why Apple couldn’t incorporate USB drive support in the iPad 2.


  3. No way dude. I played with the Kindle Fire for about an hour and found it incredibly difficult to use. It’s small, feels like an ereader/large smart phone. I just couldn’t think as to why I would use that instead of my HTC evo phone. When the phone is to small, the Ipad is just large enough. I agree though that it is way cheaper…but I guess you get what you pay for.
