    If you are looking for a portable device to view movies and listen to music the Kindle Fire out performs the Nook tablet in the sound department:

    Sound

    "There’s no comparison between the accurate, loud, and rich stereo speakers that sit on the short right side of the Kindle Fire and the distorted, clock radio-like speaker on the back of the Nook Tablet. When we tried playing music and movies on the Fire, sound was loud enough to fill a room and good enough to replace a low-end stereo. The only problem with sound on the Kindle Fire is that the device lacks physical volume buttons."

    Since a Tablet is a "Personal" media system designed for use by one person at a time; I suspect most would be using ear phones If they were looking for a really quality audio experience. But then again maybe not!!!

    While I wish they were landscape stereo, I have found them plenty loud enough that I don't use headphones.

    I've actually started watching stuff on it in the kitchen (located in a safe spot of course) while preparing meals and stuff...

    Get the equalizer app. I was able to make my DINC 2 much louder with it!

    Oh please

    The Nook Tablet has nearly double of everything than the Fire, that's not including the expandable SD card slot. Also not to mention that the Nook Color was a hacker dream - naturally making the Nook Tablet a hackers paradise and thus allowing you to do more with your Nook than your Kindle

    Sure, for audiophiles the audio might sound better on the Fire, but really isn't a valid reason to buy a tablet. Even then, when do audiophiles use the built in speaker on a device? Never. They use high quality headphones.

    Both have Pros and Cons - my big selling point is the fact that the Nook has double of everything that the Kindle has for a mere $50, once again not including

    Also - that comparison is a bit bias - look at the Value section - it says that $50 is too much to spend for cash strapped buyers yet a $79/year subscription to amazon prime is 100% fine, right. Rofl

    The Amazon Cloud integration is really tight with the Kindle Fire (as it should be) and I'm not sure that there is an easy way yet to emulate the whole [cloud] / [device] Amazon Cloud interface with the Nook or any other standard Android device. I like the tight integration with the Amazon Cloud...it's one of the things I like about the Kindle Fire.

    I'm still not convinced that I'm going to keep the KF I purchased as I may just 'Androidize' my HP touchpad when ICS is ported and stable.

    Double the memory, ram and SD slot....only the SD slot is of significance. Apple has been running the same amount of ram just fine and Amazon will as well. The internal memory is BS on the Nook as it only has 13g due to the OS and the rest had to be B&N content. Internal is much more locked down.

    Also there are many topics about how much easier it is to root the fire over the Nook.

    Also about the sound.....one thing I have actually been disappointed in. Besides that, this thing is fantastic for the price point.

    1g + Expandable > 6GB

    Any day

    Too cheap to spend $20 on a 32GB Card? Limit yourself to the KF

    What's most ironic about this is that I once mounted a Amazon S3 drive on a linux system and it reported as like 256 terabytes of available storage space.

    Mageshadow, come back when you can get 256 terabytes of storage on your Nook.
