‘The Top 6 Alternatives to the Kindle Fire’

Isn’t this piece from Matt Burns exactly backwards? Is there a single AOL/TechCrunch reader, even one, who is better-informed by having a writer at a big-name technology site claim that any of these tablets are worth consideration? Why would anyone buy any of these turds instead of an iPad or Kindle Fire?

Put another way: Was the purpose of this piece to help readers understand the actual implications of Amazon’s entry in the tablet market? Or to create the false impression that the tablet market is more competitive and complicated than it actually is?
