Kindle vs. iPad for eTextBooks (& Courses)
With Apple's new textbook feature, if you want textbooks, or even university courses, the iPad may become a better choice than Kindle Fire. The availability of etextbooks at $14.99 from the major textbook publishers suggests that Apple for the moment has cornered the textbook market. Libraries are also sources of textbooks, of course, but the Apple textbooks are greatly enhanced textbooks. Apple had previously provided the largely unrecognized but huge college course resource (all courses free).. For both, install the iBooks and iTunes U apps. You will have the world of American education on call.
