    I'm an iPhone fanboy, and I bought the kindle fire when it came out, and it's a decent device for what it is, I mainly read on it, but I think I'm going to get an Ipad mini when it's released in October, allegedly.. Love a 7" tablet.. if they can keep the price around $250, it'll def be worth the extra $50.. rumors are iPad will be 7.85", waiting to see what the resolution is, but kindle android store sucks, it's all about iOS and iapp store

    I'm going to use it mainly for reading books and PDFs when I'm on a plane, airport or in bed. I have have some music and maybe
    a movie loaded on there as well when I want to take a break.

    I think the iPad mini is going to be square and 7.85" which I don't think will be conducive for reading. I think the Kindle fire 2
    is perfect size. I just wish it had the Kindle touch ink or paperwhite background for better reading. Also the Fire 2 will be $100
    less expensive than the mini

    I don't know anything about the Nexus device yet

    The mini won't be $300, $250 at the most, possibly less to compete with the Nexus, and it won't be square
