    Pardon the pun but you're comparing Apple to oranges. The Kindle is an eReader device only. Period. And in my estimation an inferior one (the Sony Reader 600 is far better) but that's only an opinion. The iPad is so much more than a simple reader. Apps galore, office tasks, games, eBook reader, iPod, video player, and too many more to go on. Simply put, if you can afford the iPad buy it. You won't be disappointed. If you looking for a reader only, well, then you may want to research the myriad of choices available.

    Another way to look at it is that the iPad is useless outside in sunlight, and the Kindle is useless in a dark living/bed room. So if anything, the answer is "both".

    I hear that with the nook, you can share your books with other nook users. That alone would make me get a nook over a kindle. Either of those are best for just reading. If you want much more than a reader and you are ok with a backlit screen for long reading, then the iPad is great.

    the apad is horrible, wait for the android tablets coming out by big companies, it runs worse than the g1. the first android device out to the public. that's how bad it is.

    I think that in his price range he might want to consider the CherryPad.

    This is simple. If u want a device mainly for reading get a kindle. If you want a portable computer then take an iPad. Don't take an iPad for reading and don't buy a kindle for a computer replacement. These are two different devices.
