Amazon Hits Apple with New 'Three Kindles for the Price of an iPad' Commercial
Back in 2010, Amazon took on the iPad with a Kindle ad touting its E Ink capabilities that provide superior viewing in direct sunlight. Amazon has now revived the original concept addressing readability in bright sunlight but augmenting it by promoting the Kindle's significantly lower pricing. The ad notes that customers can buy three Kindles for less than the price of an iPad, allowing everyone in the family to have their own device.
Man: Hey, excuse me. That's the new Kindle, isn't it? $79.With the Kindle Fire priced at $199 and the basic ad-supported Kindle priced at $79, two Kindle Fires and a Kindle would cost a total of $477, below the iPad's $499 entry-level price. Apple has been rumored to be planning to continue offering the iPad 2 as a lower-cost option once the company introduces the iPad 3 early next month, but Apple almost certainly will not match or come close to the Kindle Fire's pricing given the significant differences between the two devices.
Woman: Best way to read, even in sunlight.
Man: Yeah, but I mean if you want to watch movies, or surf the Web...
Woman: I've got a Kindle Fire for that.
Man: Three Kindles. That's got to be expensive.
Woman: Not really. Together they're still less than that. (nods at man's iPad)
