Mom's 60th birthday is next month, and I've been telling her I'd like to get her an iPad mini, when I thought they would be $249-$299. But at $329 ($360 after tax) is it worth almost twice as much as the new Kindle Fire HD for $199, tax free? She has an iPhone, and is competent with iOS, so I think she'd really enjoy the iPad mini. I just need some help deciding if it's worth the money over the Fire HD, for someone who's never used a tablet before. She may be very happy with the Fire HD, and save me some money. However, I like the fact that the iPad mini comes with the iOS features she's used to, like the mail app, iMessage, Facetime, etc.
