The above chart  which shows the " Difference and similarity  “ between  the latest Tablets on the block,  Kindle Fire (Amazon ) and Barnes and Noble  Nook “in terms of features was posted  by  the guys at  Geek.com. Special Thanks To Will Shanklin  , of Geel.com for posting this. As far as software goes, that’s where the Kindle Fire is probably going to be the easy pick. Barnes & Noble is finally labeling this Nook as a tablet, so we could see their app selection grow, but right now their library isn’t as mature as Amazon’s.

Tablets Comparison: Kindle Fire Vs Galaxy Tab 10.1


On Wednesday, Amazon made their first entry into the tablet race with the launch of the Kindle Fire. Amazon already cornered the market on digital reading with their Kindle e-readers, and the content-focused Fire could prove a major threat to the king of tablets, the Apple iPad.

Apart from the  Gadget, Kindlle Fire users will have access to Amazon's bevy of media products including books, music, movies, apps, games, and a virtual newsstand. The Fire will even remember where the user left off in a book or movie and automatically go to that spot the next time the user wants to read or watch.

The Amazon Kindle Fire packs a 1GHz dual-core processor and runs on a modified version of Google's Android operating system. A custom web browser, Amazon Silk, should makes the Fire a nimble browsing device.

Amazon Enters The Tablet Market by Launching $199 Kindle Fire







Amazon just put the rest of the tablet world on notice by pricing the Kindle Fire at $199, less than half of the $500 mark that the industry has gravitated toward as a standard price. By doing so, Amazon is redefining for consumers just how much they need to pay for a quality tablet.


The new device, priced at $199, may have the biggest impact on other makers of tablets and e-readers, such as Samsung and Barnes & Noble Inc, which makes Nooks

"It's a Nook killer," said Scot Wingo, chief executive of ChannelAdvisor, which helps merchants sell more on websites including Amazon.com. "And it's a very compelling offering if you're not in the Apple ecosystem already."

The Kindle Fire tablet has a 7-inch screen, free data storage over the Internet and a new browser called Amazon Silk. Amazon expects shipments to start on Nov. 15.


Amazon also introduced the Kindle Touch, an e-reader with no buttons and a touch screen starting at $99. And it cut the price of its basic Kindle e-reader to $79 from $99.

"These are premium products at non-premium prices," Chief Executive Jeff Bezos said. "We are going to sell millions of these."To demonstrate the Kindle Fire, Bezos pulls up a chair. He proudly shows off a lightning-fast Web browser that runs on Amazon’s EC2 cloud computing engine and Amazon’s version of the Android app store, with over 10,000 games, e-mail programs, shopping guides, and the like.



However The Kindle Fire and Kindle Touch are being launched in the U.S. only with no detail on when it plans to offer the new devices abroad.


A Amazon still lacks a convincing global strategy compared with Apple,” writes Sarah Rotman-Epps at Forrester. “The iPad is available in 64 countries, and we estimate that 50 percent of iPad sales in 2011 are outside the US.”

This is now a pattern with Amazon. It took two years for the earlier Kindle to make it outside the U.S.. Amazon is also yet to launch its App Store and video service outside North America.
