Taking a look at the main features of the Kindle Fire and Nook Color, one sees that there are a few glaring differences. One can see that Barnes and Noble offers 729 apps versus 16,638 apps at Amazon. This reflects the main difference in the middle of the two devices, in the way that Amazon just offers more content than Barnes and Noble.

Barnes and Noble has made it clear from the starting that the Nook Color is a “color eBook reader” and they want to focus on the reading with their device. There has been buyer complaints that it is slow to write back with safe bet things such as watching videos online. Again, it’s a color eBook reader. It excels with reading magazines and other color publications.

Amazon aims to take a slightly different arrival with the Kindle Fire. They advertise the gismo as more of a tablet Pc than just a color eBook reader. This is obvious with the uncut conference about the new “Silk” web browser, according to Amazon, is a much faster mobile web browsing caress that uses Cloud technology to aid in web page load time.

Cloud storehouse vs On gismo Storage

Another big difference in the middle of the Fire and Nook Color is the way content is stored on the device, or off the device. Nook Color offers 8 Gb of on-device storehouse out of the box, with the capability to advance storehouse up to 32 Gb with an Sd card. The Fire is different with 8 Gb on-device storehouse out of the box, with unlimited use of the Amazon Ec2 Cloud to backup and store as many files as the user needs or wants.

When comparing the Kindle Fire vs Nook Color, one can see there are many differences despite looking like very similar devices at first glance. Amazon’s gismo could be seen as more a Tablet Pc than Barnes and Noble’s gismo which is a self declared color eBook reader.
