I want to get him one for a gift, but I haven't used or tried either, so if anyone with experience - preferably with both machines - could give me an opinion, that would be great.
I know there is a big price difference. However, I tend to favor the iPad as I think he would enjoy it more once he got the hang of it. My feeling is that it is so much more versatile than Kindle, or other similar eBook readers. Plus, we do have wireless in the house, so an Internet connection isn't a problem. (Does Kindle connect to the Internet to for downloading books? I'm not familiar with how Kindle or and iPad works.)
Comments and suggestions gratefully appreciated!
