Apple created revenues of $4.53 billion from the iPad in the quarter gone by and probably closer to $10 billion in the 4 quarters to come, the iPad is now busy on reviewing its design and the product margin , incl competition from Component suppliers Samsung and even RIM where the iPhone and iPad continue to together create a new space in global professionals looking for a sleek companion

Kindle, however, has introduced design changes more on the user interface, with Ad supported $100 Kindle a cute and worthy competition to all the noise in the tablet market esp as Amazon and Netflix models have a local captive audience which is not experimenting anymore. It has just gone ahead of your wildest imagination in terms of the catalog available on your Kindle with support from 67% of the libraries in the United States whose books are now available on rent on your Kindle. That I think is true market development from both competitors

Amazon will let users of its Kindle e-reader borrow electronic books from two-thirds of US libraries as it seeks to broaden the device’s appeal in the face of competition from Apple’s iPad and rival tablets.

The world’s largest online retailer said that from later this year, customers would be able to borrow e-books from libraries and read – and annotate – them on a Kindle or any other device to which users have downloaded a Kindle app.
