Ever since Apple launched their first tablet computer to the world, the tech market has never been the same. Ipad changed the face of the technological industry and had been the front runner of the tablet computers. Even when it dominated the market since it was first released back in April 2010, other companies go into production with their own versions of the tablet computers, even rivaled Apple's IPad series.

The first generation Kindle was sold out in just five and a half hours since it was presented in November 19, 2007. Kindle Fire, the latest to be released of the Kindle generation, was a success with over 5 million units sold since its debut in November 15, 2011. The tablet version e-book reader retails for only $199. Experts have envisioned this device to be a tough contender of the Ipad.
