Kindle Fire vs. Nook Tablet

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have been using Kindle for quite some time now. But I need an upgrade to my current device and I want a Nook Tablet.

But I want to know first the difference between the two and who got a higher rating?

Which is better to use with great screen features and huge size of storage?

I need advices from all Nook and Kindle users.

Thank you.

Kindle Fire vs. Nook Tablet


Hi. In reply to your question, I want like to inform you that the Nook Tablet has a clear edge on the Amazon Kindle Fire. Following are the pros and cons of both the devices in points form :

Pros of Nook Tablet:

1. Touchscreen more responsive

2.  Large collection of interactive books. Particularly useful for children

3.  Weight is slightly lesser than Kindle Fire

4.  Nook Tablet has double space storage that Kindle Fire

Pros of Kindle Fire :

1. Better look and easy  to handle

2. Pre-loaded apps in Kindle Fire are far more in quantity than in Nook Tablet.

Cons of Nook Tablet:

1. It is expensive than Amazon's device.

Cons of Kindle Fire :

1. No microphone and volume button. There for no recording option, and voice cannot be adjusted when watching videos

2. Stutters at times

3. There is data restriction. Most of the data has to be purchased from Amazon Store.

4. When watching same videos on the same WiFi network, the picture seems to be pixilated on kindle fire.

Hope you would like my reply
