Why Parents Should Choose a Kindle Fire HD over an iPad 3

I watched an exciting news conference today from Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos. You see, I have been waiting for months for the new Kindle Fire HD to release. I currently own an old-school Kindle Keyboard 3G/Wifi and I love that it has 3G – I can download books anywhere and it doesn’t cost me a dime! Sure I wanted something a little snazzier for the apps, games, and browsing on the go, but no way would I pay $629 for an iPad 3 plus $14.99+ per month for data. Ouch.

My dream of a Kindle Fire with 3G did come true
