There are several reviews on Amazon’s Kindle Fire comparing to Barnes and Noble’s Nook, most reviews choose one or the other.
Here I am simply going to lay out the Advantages and Disadvantages to each and you can see them in the video below (courtesy of CNet)
They are both competing in the 7 inch tablet market and although they are quite similar both these babies have their clear cut advantages and disadvantages to each other. I made the list of both short and sweet, you can check it out below the video.
- The screen is a bit better
- Option to buy more space
- Kids’ books with Nook color
- Better Magazines Options
- Customizable home screen and multipages
- Battery life seems a bit better
- Lots of Barnes and Noble Stores to get deals from
- Price: Its more expensive
- No video download service
- No Amazon Prime-style membership advantage
- Required charging adapter
- Amazon Prime with great selection of videos
- Customized interface:
- Free Cloud Space and Access: 5 Gb free to store your items
- Offline video download options available
- Access to Amazon Services and Deals
Kindle Fire: Disadvantages
- Storage space could be better: You want be able to store lots of HD movies
- The design is very plain: If the kindle was a girl- she will be average with no make-up
- You need web access to really enjoy it
- Prime membership: It is a disadvantage because you have to pay for it ($79 annually)
In terms of sales, the Kindle is doing much better, and personally- as a Amazon Prime subscriber I will go with the Kindle but they are both good tablets.
My advice is go with the company you are more affiliate with: if you you Amazon services more get the kindle fire and if you use Barnes & Noble’s more get the Nook.
