The Kindle does less than an iPad, that's for sure. But at $500 for the S, you are in iPad territory (I have an iPad, so I can compare apples-to-apples (no pun intended!)). And at that level, the competition is stiff.
I agree $500 is too much for the S, but I don't use itunes for video and I don't like apple products for the most part. So, while the ipad appeals to most, I also see it as really overpriced, and I favor the S, anyday. The S has already and will continue to drop in price, while the ipad will remain overpriced.
The Kindle does quite a bit for the price point. Keep in mind we are comparing tablets (in my case the Kindle) to the Vita, not the Kindle to iPads.
comparing them. I was simply stating that the S with its DS3 compatibility is a step in the right direction for Sony. Comparing Kindle to Vita is like comparing a mid 90s laptop to a walkman. -Neither have enough similarities to belong in the same category for comparison.
I want Battlefield 3, on a tablet + DS3 controller, that can save my file to cloud storage on PSN, and then when I'm home, I can pick it back up on PS3 where I left off. Yes, I want to pay $60 for one copy of one game, and be able to use it on both the console and the handheld. Maybe I'm asking for too much.
