    In case you haven't seen this commercial for the Amazon Kindle Fire, we thought it would be fun to share it. This new ad poke some not-so-gentle fun at the price of the iPad devices from Apple. Of course, it probably isn't a realistic comparison to pit the Kindle and Kindle Fire directly against the iPad2, but it makes for some humorous quick entertainment. Also, you gotta give Amazon props for good strategic marketing.

    The price of the iPad is pretty reasonable compared to the price of some of the Android Tablets.

    Such as what? The only tablet that's expensive from Android is Samsung galaxy. The rest are at least 100 less than the iPad
