Anick Jesdanun with a few details on Amazon’s new Kindle HDX 8.9 which is smaller and lighter and priced lower than Apple’s hot selling iPad Air.
Yes, the Kindle is lighter, at about 0.83 pound, or 17 percent less than the Air. But I couldn’t really tell the difference holding the two side by side.
And yes, the Kindle has a sharper screen, with a resolution of 339 pixels per inch compared with the iPad’s 264 pixels per inch. But I couldn’t really tell the difference watching the Pixar cartoon “Monsters University” side by side.
No mention of the differences in apps, which is why people use a tablet.
