It seems that Kindle Fire HD is sparking more interest in buyers this holiday season than the hyped iPad mini.
CouponCodes4U.com has predicted that Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD could sell double the units than the Apple’s iPad mini. Quite a bold prediction, huh? But the folks back there have a logic behind it. CouponCodes4u has presented data from its website showing searches from the last three weeks, and revealed that “Kindle Fire HD” was searched two times more than “iPad mini”.
Also, the website stated that there were more searches for Kindle Fire HD following the first week of its announcement as compared to the searches for iPad mini in the first week following its announcement.
The iPad mini has the strong brand of Apple associated with it, but when it comes to pricing, Kindle Fire HD wins with a starting price of $199 as compared to $329 for the iPad mini. People might find the iPad sexier than the Kindle device, but not every one can afford the expensive iPad mini. Also, customers might also be looking at the cool Android-based Nexus tablets from Google.
As we race towards the Black Friday, the beginning of the holiday shopping season, it remains to be seen how actual sales turn out. What will you prefer, the Kindle Fire HD or the iPad mini? Read our comparison between the iPad mini and the Kindle Fire HD here and tell us!
