You have got to love the new Kindle tablet - Kindle Fire. I would actually want an iPad. But I am more than happy that I got a Kindle Fire for my birthday instead. It works just like the original iPads without the camera.
It's iTunes would be the Amazon/Kindle Store. There are plenty of awesome apps and eBooks offered either paid or free. They have a free app of the day type of thing. You can store your files in there such as photos, documents, music, videos, and more.
It's very light and it's easy to carry around with you. It'll fit perfectly in your purse, thus making it easier for you to carry it with you wherever you go.
