Its clear to see that first of all, Amazon have far less applications to use than the App store have.  This will mean less fun and flexibility if you are using a Kindle Fire HD over an iPad mini.

The price for the Kindle Fire HD is lower than the iPad Mini and in some respects this will see a lot of people choose it over the Mini, however the Mini is expected to jump in price on other websites rather than loose any of its value, due to demand and the fact its a resilient device.

The Kindle fire is defiantly heavier than the iPad mini with it weighing in at 1.22 pounds, the iPad mini clearly beats this with a weight of only 0.68 pounds.  It feels great to hold and walking with the iPad mini is very comfortable.

Over all there are a few things that are beaten when it comes to the iPad Mini, but we cannot see any reason to chose the Kindle Fire HD over it.
