Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet Comparison
Many people are thinking of whether to buy Nook Tablet or Kindle Fire. It’s true that you can’t decide unless a clear picture what are the similarities and differences in physical and technical specifications and contents available between two devices. Here I’m not looking at the similarities, rather differences so that the capability of two devices can be distinguished. I put my comments in the third column.
