While Motorola has inveigled the tech world with its ads teasing iPad and Galaxy Tab, Amazon Kindle has mustered the courage to tease the whole section of tablets, not just iPad. In a 30 second commercial, Kindle appraises its no glare capability, its easy to read in sunlight characteristic and its to 800,000 books. Kindle weighs less than your average paperback and it has an incredible battery life of one month. Now that’s incredible.
In the ad, the tablet can be easily substituted with iPad, Galaxy Tab or whatever your choice is, because they all lack the characteristics which Kindle has. Especially the no glare and incredible battery life. A battery life of one month, now that’s wow. But Kindle can’t play YouTube videos. Yes it doesn’t. But it does very few things extremely well. It costs a paltry $139 and that should count for something. May be the person who buys a Kindle does’t want to watch videos on the device but just want to read. With Amazon’s access to vast collection of free popular classics, all you might be spending on Kindle is $139. Life’s worth of reading material is already available for free. The Book lives on. Indeed.
