I have both of these devices (as well as several other Android tablets and even a Microsoft Windows 8 tablet) and let me just say that the Kindle can't compete as a 'tablet' with many of these other products.

The Kindle is a media consumption device and it's ok for some light gaming (but even my 5 year old can see the difference between Angry Birds on the Kindle and the iPad and prefers the iPad).

It's not in the same category as an iPad which is always readily apparent to a casual observer (which is why the arrival of the Kindle had no impact on Apple's iPad sales).
