I have both and the reason I bought a kindle for reading is that it's smaller and a lot easier to carry around. I read a lot so it was running the battery down very quickly on my iPad/iPhone.
My mother says the same thing that's why she has the kindle as well as the ipad. Funnily enough since I tend to use the kindle late at night, I ALWAYS have the kindle led light on and its battery lasts hardly any time at all
