Amazon Kindle Plays Rough Listen to this article

Looks like Amazon isn’t taking the iPad/Kindle rivalry lightly. In fact, they are actively playing it up in their latest commercial!

Let’s look at where Amazon really came out swinging:

•Showcasing how nice the Kindle is in daylight versus the iPad.

•Having the kindle user be a hot girl, while the iPad user was a fairly average guy.

•Implying the Kindle user was smarter and better with money-she knew her device worked well in the sun and was cheaper, while the iPad guy seemed clueless.

This is a far cry from those earlier surreal fantasy style Kindle ads, and I am curious to see if this is a one-off or a lead-up to a big Christmas marketing push! I do think ads like this effectively drive home Amazon’s selling points. eInk is better in sunlight, and the Kindle is far cheaper. Whether Kindle users are better looking is probably a matter of opinion though!
