Question Whats better, Ipad 2 or Kindle fire?

I know kindle is cheaper, but since the gf is a reader, I'm thinking whats the best choice between the 2. Anyone care to chime in?

the non color kindle screens are best for reading ... if you are going color then the ipad3 is better ... but a bit large ... the ipad min screen isn't great ...

I live in a split house. My GF loves her andriod phone and Kindle fire. I on the other hand love my Iphone and Ipad. We have tried switching and it just doesn't work at all for either of us. If she has an Iphone I would get her the Ipad if she likes android she will love the fire. IMO

I have both the kindle and the iPad and find it much easier to read on the Kindle. Everytime I fly someone asks me why I am reading on my Kindle when I have a iPad.
The Kindle also is very easy to read if you are in direct soon such as on the beach.

Nexus 7 / Nexus 10?
For purely reading however I agree with above, B&W Kindle

Kindle is merely a doorway to Amazon, nothing more.

i have a nook & dig it.... not sure differences between nook & kindle but happy with it...... its the color one but don't think matters when using for just books. I don't really use for anything else, though I have neflixed on it & worked well.

I wound up getting her the Ipad mini 32gig for reading & a unlocked Iphone 5. (gave the Ipad to her early) This girl is now completely in love with me and told her dad she would like to marry me. Like in a month..

Kind of surprised you didn't just buy her a gun - it's dangerous out there.

Funny story actually, we went Xmas shopping last week and while strolling in a mall I saw an old surplus store I used to go to when I was younger. We went in and I tried to impress her by offering to buy her a spyderco knife for protection (shes terrified of knives and guns). So I asked the clerk for a delica knife and while trying to look cool flick opening/closing the knife, I sliced my finger and it started to bleed on the glass table. I was like "and thats what you don't want to do..right??" the owner of the store was like I took her to the shooting range last nite, she did very well with my Kimber TLE RL & my Cali-legal MP5.
