1. I've been thinking of both
(well, a kindle and a tablet of some kind, probably not an iPad though).
I already have a Kindle touch and I love it for reading books which is what it was designed to do. I do not want to read lengthy books off a tablet device because my eyes get tired. When they say the e-Ink of the kindle is just like reading a book they are telling the truth. No worries about the sun being too bright or eye-strain after prolonged use (like I get from playing games on my phone too long)
which brings me to to a tablet. My Kindle touch does nothing other than reading books (and possibly newspapers and magazines that don't require pictures). A tablet would let me surf the net, play games, go shopping, and a lot of other things that a laptop would let me do without having to carry a laptop.
But then I'd have to carry 2 things. And my phone does most of the tablet things, just on a smaller screen.
So I guess I'm in no hurry to get a tablet until the folding, clear oled screens become cheap and ubiquitous.
