Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire – Comparison and Review

Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire. If you are looking to purchase an inexpensive tablet computer then both the Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet and the Nook Tablet are available for under $150.

As can be expected of a sub $200 tablet, both Amazon and Barnes & Noble have made some obvious sacrifices to their tablets in an attempt to lure customers to their device and then capitalise by selling digital content to the customer. However, which tablet represents the best value for money? Let’s take an in-depth look at both tablets to compare their key features and identify the tablet that you will be most satisfied with.

With the its dual-core TI OMAP 4 processor the Kindle Fire is slightly more powerful than the Nook Tablet which is powered by a 800 MHz single core processor. Does this make a considerable difference? In most cases no – in most of our standard operation tasks we found no significant difference in performance or responses. However, the Kindle Fire did perform marginally better when performing simultaneous tasks such as downloading a video while listening to music or reading a book while listening to music.

πŸ† Winner: Kindle Fire

Screen Display

It is hard not to be impressed with the screen display of both the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet – both tablets offer a 7” color touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 x 60 and 169 pixels per inch. However, I have been suitably impressed with the highly durable and extra scratch resistant screen of the Kindle Fire which gives it an edge over the Nook Tablet for me.

πŸ† Winner: Kindle Fire

Battery Life

The Kindle Fire boasts a battery life of up to 8 hours with wireless disabled and takes 4 hours for a full charge. Similarly the Nook Tablet can last up to 8 hours with wireless disabled but can be charged in 3 hours which gives it a slight advantage over the Kindle Fire.
