I’m shocked I must admit. I’ve been reading a few reviews of the newly launched Ipad from Apple (AAPL) and many of the reviews praise the Ipad for being better than expected and even better than Amazon’s (AMZN) Kindle!!!

Seriously?

I’ve been writing about this for the past few months but how can Amazon just recently think about adding multimedia features as well as colour screens and not be terribly far behind. The Ipad wasn’t even launched and Amazon was already years behind. Is it perfect? Far from it. But things are changing very fast and I would bet that this will mean more lost revenue for Amazon.

Already, it has been forced to change its pricing policies for many publishers because the publishers can now threaten to leave Amazon to focus on the alternatives, a move that would have been unimaginable just a few months ago.

Is Amazon doomed?

Of course Amazon isn’t, it has so many other areas… But it should not focus too much energy on the Kindle as the race is already lost.. If any reviewers are still in doubt, they should do their homework…
