Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire

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 at excellent prices. The Kindle is produced by online book giants Amazon while its closest rival, the Nook, is made by Barnes and Noble. Both are excellent products so choosing between the kindle fire vs nook tablet can be difficult as they both have their strengths and weaknesses which are discussed below in our Kindle vs Nook Review bellow.

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.

Kindle Tablet review

While most electronic readers only have one model on the market, there are numerous Kindle options out there, from the basic Kindle to the Kindle Touch, the Kindle Touch 3G, the Kindle Keyboard 3G and the hot new Kindle Fire. Kindle reviews can help you figure out which of these devices fits your reading needs best. For instance, if you only care about reading and don’t want any bells or whistles, then the simple Kindle is going to be a great option.

Nook Tablet review

Like the Kindle, the Barnes and Noble Nook is available in several different formats. You’ll find the Nook Simple Touch, the Nook Color and the all-new Nook Tablet as well. Just like the Kindle, these Nooks come with a wide range of capabilities, features and prices. The best way to figure out which one is right for you is by reading our Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire comparison review. These review will help you determine if you really need that color screen, or if a black and white screen might be a better choice for you. In addition, you’ll be able to use Nook reviews to compare the Nook Tablet to other models and see if the price difference is really worth it for your particular needs.

Performance – Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire

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.

Screen Display – Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire

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.

Connectivity – Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire

Uploading data to the reader is probably easier on the Kindle with their superior Whispernet wireless service. This technology is available all over the world and allows for books and other texts to be downloaded instantly. However the Nook browser is generally better for general, frequent use as internet pages tend to appear faster making it less frustrating than its rival.

Storage Space – Kindle vs Nook

The Nook can traditionally hold more information than its rival as once its 8 GB of memory is filled up, it lets its users have more with a SD memory card slot which allows for 32 GB of storage. Even the new Kindle Fire is way behind this with only 5 GB of storage available and while this makes little difference for books and documents, for those who want to build a video library on their eReader the Nook wins hands down.

Battery Life – Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire

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.

Unfortunately for Barnes and Noble, the Nook pays a big price for its higher screen resolution and its colour screen in the form of a lower battery life. With a Nook reader, you only get around eight hours before the device needs recharging, limiting its usefulness when travelling unless a power point is available. This is also true of the Kindle Fire so consumers need to make a choice between having the luxury of a colour screen or the longer charge times of other Kindle models such as the Kindle Touch or the Kindle Keyboard, which can stay charged for up to two months.

Available Data For The Kindle Vs Nook

One of the main areas that the Kindle attracts customers over the Nook or any other eReader for that matter is in the sheer volume of books available. Amazon have by far more to offer in this area than the competition and continue to expand the number of titles they have, giving them a strong edge in the battle of the Kindle Vs Nook.

Nook Tablet vs Kindle Fire Conclusion

Both the Kindle and the Nook have advantages and disadvantages but overall the Kindle is probably the best choice as it gives more options and has a wider choice of texts. With the release of the Kindle Fire, anything the Nook can do, can be found for a lower price and for those who want longer battery life instead of the colour feature, the Kindle Touch or the Kindle Keyboard would be the best choice of eReader.

Bottom Line
 

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.
