Amazon Kindle Fire VS Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet

Amazon Kindle Fire VS Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet

After Amazon introduced Kindle Fire in last September, Barnes & Noble also introduced their new Nook Tablet. Both tablets has similar features. The main hardware differences are RAM (1GB in Nook Tablet vs 512MB in Kindle) and storage (16GB in Nook Tablet + SD card expansion vs 8GB in Kindle Fire). With a higher specification, Nook Tablet costs more than Kindle Fire 50$.

The advantage of Kindle Fire is the support from Amazon digital store (e-reader, apps, music, games, videos…) and Amazon cloud service. However, Barnes & Noble provides Prime as an alternative.

The following table shows a comparison between 2 tablets:

I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be
a lot more useful than ever before.
