It’s only one showdown, one opinion, but comparing specs of the two tablets shows that the Kindle Fire HDX scored well head-to-head with the iPad Mini.
The Amazon Kindle Fire never lit the world on fire with any of its offerings. It has always been considered to a pretty solid device but hasn’t gotten the traction. The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX might be the one that really gets the fire stoked, though. Announced today, the newest tablet from Amazon comes with some impressive internals that should bring equally impressive performance to users. This could be Amazon’s best chance to bite into some of the market share of the big names, and there’s perhaps no name bigger in mobile devices than Apple. Does the Kindle Fire HDX have enough to knock off the iPad Mini this holiday season? We put the two side-by-side for a spec showdown to find out.
