>> Function

The second significant difference between the Kindle e-reader and iPad is the function. The primary feature of Kindle e-reader is reading eBooks and listening to audiobooks and music. You can use the iPad to read eBooks, view websites, send e-mails, play games, watch videos, listen to music, and more. Each mode of iPad has access to the internet, but only some models of Kindle have access to the internet.

Integrated with Kindle store, you can read eBooks saved in almost all formats (including MOBI, AZW, and AZW3 format) on Kindle eReaders, except EPUB files. So the Kindle e-reader is the right choice for you if you only need it for reading books. If you have a further purpose, you should choose iPad.
