IPad 2 VS Kindle 3

Before compare iPad 2 with Kindle 3, it is necessary to know more about iPad 2 and Kindle 3.

What is iPad 2?
iPad 2 certainly is great as a mobile device to consume contents - it's now faster, thinner, lighter, with two cameras and looks even better. While other companies think tablets are only an extension to their computers and TVs, Apple has turned it around to make computers and TVs extensions to the iPad 2.
What is Kindle 3?
According to Wikipedia, Amazon announced a new generation of the Kindle on July 28, 2010. While Amazon does not officially add numbers to the end of each Kindle denoting its generation, most reviewers, customers and press companies refer to this updated Kindle as the "Kindle 3".
Now let's compare iPad 2 with Kindle 3, this is the primary difference between the iPad 2 vs Kind 3.
iPad 2 VS Kindle 3- Features and Uses.
There are some amazing new Kindle 3 features that are making the Kindle 3 far more popular than its nearest rivals, but the fact that one can read and access thousands of eBooks on the iPad as well means that these two devices are in direct competition with each other, at least for a particular segment. The Kindle 3 though is severely limited in this comparison, as one can only use it for downloading and reading eBooks, and for surfing the Internet via Wi-Fi connection, or over the 3G network, even though it can qualify as the best eBook reader.
On the other hand, the iPad 2 is a complete multimedia device, over which you can read eBooks, surf the Internet, open and edit word editors and spreadsheets, watch movies and also play many games. Thanks to the Apple Store which provides more than 200,000 different applications.
iPad 2 VS Kindle 3 - Physical Specifications
The iPad is also much bigger (9.56 x 7.47 x 0.5 inches) in comparison with the Kindle 3 (7.5 x 4.8 x 0.34 inches), and also heavier (25.6 ounces vs 8.7 ounces) for the Wi-Fi + 3G enabled models. Again, this is a natural result due to the differences in the purposes of both the devices. The Kindle 3 has a memory of 4 GB, whereas the iPad has 3 different variants, namely the 16 GB, the 32 GB and the 64 GB models. Another notable advantage of the iPad is the presence of a touchscreen, which is becoming the norm for all electronic devices with each passing day.

Can I transfer information books, photos, etc. from my Kindle Fire to my iPad Pro?

Books that you have purchased can be read on any iPad using the Kindle Reader, which is a free download. The books will synchronize between devices as well (e.g. if you are reading on page 97 on one device, you can pick up on that page on another).
Photos are a different story. I'd recommend you get them into a cloud based service (dropbox, etc.) where you can view them on any device connected to that service including iPads and other ios devices. Or if you get them onto a computer, they can be moved to any ios device from there. Searching for a solution for you may be best bet; here is a start: http://classroom.synonym.com/upload-pictures-kindle-fire-onto-computer-17304.html
Here is one way to move photos from computer to ios: Step 1: Connect your iPhone to computer with its USB cable, and then run iTunes if it doesn't open automatically. Step 2: Click Device tab > Select Photos > Check SyncPhotos > Select where you want to sync photos (iPhoto, Photos or some specific folder) > Click Apply.
