Watch out iPad: Even indirect Fire can cook Apples

Analysts and pundits are queuing up to point out the Kindle Fire's shortcomings, and how Amazon's entrant to the tablet market is "not a true iPad competitor."

That seems pretty short-sighted.

iPad will own 2011 holidays (and many after that) say analysts

In fact, Gartner expect the iPad to hold its lead until 2014.
