You can click right here and order an Amazon Kindle 8.9-inch HD tablet for $299 now. I feel it necessary to point this out, not only because I would collect a small commission on that sale — although that is certainly incentive enough — but also because every sale helps diminish the phony prestige of those insufferable Apple snobs we all hate:
Amazon has launched a new video ad for the Kindle HD 8.9, and it’s not beating around the bush this time. The ad is a direct comparison with Apple’s iPad, claiming the two devices’ screens are virtually identical, while the price for the Kindle is much lower.
“This is the iPad with Retina display,” says the text of the ad. “And this is the new Kindle Fire HD with an 8.9-inch display … You may not be able to tell the difference. But your wallet definitely can,” the ad concludes.
The difference in price is, indeed, substantial. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ starts at $299, while the iPad starts at $499.
Obviously, that’s the only incentive you need to click right here and order an Amazon Kindle 8.9-inch HD tablet for $299 now, although the fact that I’ll collect a small commission on the sale is a factor that might further incentivize your purchase.
Because Free Competition Works, and Apple Sucks
