However, this fall Amazon launched their Kindle Fire and the world of budget Android eReader/tablet hybrids has grown to be much more interesting. Now it's two full-colored touchscreen devices that straddle that line between eReader and tablet. In this article I will try to compare these competitors.
Nook Color together with Kindle Fire both feature simple design which includes a good holdability factor. They look pretty much the same, but Nook has its unique loop in the bottom-right corner. On the other hand, Kindle is a small amount smaller (7. 5 x 4. 7 x 0. 45 inches as compared to Nook's 8. 1 x 5 x 0. 5 inches) and lighter (16. 6 vs. 5. 8 oz).
Both gadgets can boast of high quality 7-inch LCD touchscreens with the resolution of 1024?? 600 at 169 dpi and 16 million colors. They both look great within either portrait or panorama orientation
Though the CPU is not such key point for tablet PCs together with e-readers, still the Kindle features a newer dual-core processor which is likely to perform faster than that of Nook. When reading or listening to mp3s you'll likely not notice any difference.
Kindle Fire together with Nook Color run Android but have their own proprietary versions of software and user interface. It makes it better for average non-techie users to use these devices. However, advanced users might want to root them in order to turn them in a full Android tablet and sideload applications instead of buying them. In this respect Nook seems to be a winner as it features a microSD slot with which you'll run the hack and take it off to return to the original configuration.
Both devices are extremely good for reading in full color almost under almost any conditions: in the sunlight and in total darkness. The screen adjusts its brightness accordingly to produce the process the preferred. Fire and Color support popular text/e-book formats and with their 8GB of internal memory can store thousands of ebooks and text file types.
It's fair to speak about that Kindle is more of a multimedia tablet than Space, as it supports much more video and audio platforms. Apart from Kindle guides (including audio improved), this device can play music from the Cloud Drive and Video on Demand. It's also possible to help stream video rentals or even free offerings which are available for Amazon Prime members.
Summing that up
The most crucial features of the a pair of devices are nearly the same: 7-inch touchscreens, customized Google android OS, 8GB of inside memory, similar size together with weight, similar battery lifestyle (about 8 hours), same connectivity (Wi-Fi), same price (Fire is usually slightly cheaper). However, Nook Color features even more original design and due to microSD slot it is more expandable/rootable.
