Also if I'm reading a book on the kindle app, if I exit the app and then open it again on iOS it opens back up in the book I was reading even if it's days later, whereas on android the app starts again and I have to go back into the book. Not to mention the added features of the iOS app.
I think it very much depends on the hardware in terms of stability and performance, though in general I would agree. I have not had any particular trouble with Kindle on my Xoom, while on my iPod Touch it crashes more often and can be sluggish. But the latter has less RAM and cpu to offer.
