Amazon has removed a full-page advert on its home page that compares the new Kindle Fire HD to the new iPad mini.
The advert titled Much More for Much Less compared the specifications and price of the Kindle Fire HD against the iPad mini, however not all the facts were correct.
The page claimed that the Kindle Fire HD has 30% more pixels than the iPad mini, 216ppi (pixels per inch) versus 163ppi, dual stereo speakers compared to mono speakers, and ultra-fast MIMO Wi-Fi.
In an email response to a 9to5Mac reader, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Marketing Phil Schiller confirmed the iPad mini has stereo speakers rather than a mono speaker that Amazon’s advert claimed.
Amazon also claims that the Kindle Fire HD has “watch HD movies and TV” as a feature, and “No HD movies or TV” on the iPad mini, which strikes us as an odd claim given that they both have the ability to download and play HD movies.
