The 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD has 193% more pixels than the little iPad, you can watch HD content and it costs $30 less.’

Apple’s new 7.9 inch iPad Mini announced this week has Amazon irked, and the cheeky e-tailer compiled a list of why Kindle Fire is better than Apple’s mini , in a statement today, as it revealed its q3 results, which by the way showed a loss of $264m (ouch)

It’s crystal clear Apple spec’d the Mini out pretty damn well – dual core A5 processor, 4G internet, the same pixel resolution of the larger iPad 2 at 1024 x 768, rear 5 megapixel camera and a front facing 1.2MP camera capable of HD FaceTime calls.
