  1. With an IPS display you can practically lay the screen flat on a table look at it from the edge and still see the screen clearly.

    IPS screens have a 178 degree viewing angle.

    There are IPS LCD's and IPS LED backlit LCD's – both have great viewing angles…however the LED backlit display tends to have better color.

    Not knocking the Kindle, seems like a good product. But there's a reason the iPad is $499 and the Kindle Fire is $199. The screen is just part of it.

    The IPS screen used on the iPad cost Apple around $95 to purchase. You can get one on Amazon (pun intended) for around $119 I'm pretty sure the Kindle isn't packing the same quality screen.

    I'm no screen specialist…this is just my best educated opinion.

  2. The iPAD (actually most tablets) have LCD displays with LEDs in them to provide the backlight that allow reading in dark/dim environments. There are three types of LCDs; TN(common, cheap, fast response, limited angles and colors, IPS(expensive, slower response, wider angles, better colors), MVA(most expensive, fast response, wide angles, better colors, poor brightness). Both the Fire and iPAD have IPS-LCD displays.
