Was iPad designed to compete with amazon kindle

Was iPad designed to compete with amazon kindle ? if so man-o-man its the perfect thing to own.I’ve seen so many criticize the iPad . I am not a huge apple fan.Thats probably why i don have so much high expectations. I have never found apple products so robust .My  little open source Ubuntu  can do  so much more the the best mac’s out there .

Anyway back to point . I see peple comparing iPad to a rock… Hahahah . Amazing i tell you. What i liked about the iPad is that the iBook app. Its a nice app where in i can store  a lot of book but then it is useful only if the reader is fine with e-book reading. some prefer the real book. Well i’m ok with both. Developing a app for iPad is pretty simple. They launched the sdk’s well ahead of the yet to be announced release date.  i could write a “”hello world” program in less than 5 mins. Thats one of the things  i liked about the iPad.One needs to carry around the dock connector to connect to PC which is quite cumbersome!!!! If u are interested in buying a kindle then i’d advice you to buy a iPad. The iPad also come with the capacitive touch screen,which is so convenient to use. Apple user interface design has also made me to think but then the os uses lot to processing power just to process the user input which by any standards is NOT appropriate.
