A couple of weeks ago, before the Nook Tablet was officially launched on Monday, I ran a short bullet list of things that the next generation of color Nook needs a shot to compete with the Kindle fire.
Although not all requirements have been met, Barnes & Noble to succeed anyway.
Regarding the price first. Amazon Kindle Fire could be more user-friendly budget with its $ 199 but $ 249 Nook Tablet packs more punch when it comes to value.
There are two features that really make fuel this argument: the display and storage space. Both the Kindle and the Nook have 7 inch IPS contact with 16 million colors. However, the tablet Nook also has a laminate having really embellish the HD video screen to see that this layer reduces glare and reflection while increasing the vividness of colors.
But the feature that can really justify the extra $ 50 is the huge amount of storage space. Four Kindle has only 8 GB of onboard memory – only 6 GB, which is available to the user.
But Nook tablet is double the 16 GB and a microSD card slot, which is ready to 32GB more space, there is a potential of 48 GB of storage. And ‘huge and probably necessary for users who do not often use the Wi-Fi, or it can be in the middle of the trip, but want to watch streaming movies only. There is not much chance to talk about the cloud as it is with fire, but will support third-party applications (like Dropbox), which are available in tablets from Nook to meet this need.
This leads to what could be another important factor in determining Nook Tablet: the ecosystem. At first it may seem easy to agree to this to win the Amazon, because it has a series of products (eg, clouds, music, e-books, online Megastore, etc.) are all in a row in the same place of the fire . Again, that assumes that all potential customers are willing to pay for the Amazon ecosystem completely.
For those who do not want, Nook Tablet is an ideal base for consumers who have a lot of other connections elsewhere (eg, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Dropbox, etc.), and similar services do not want to sign again. It also offers many opportunities for one of Amazon’s competitors move toward the B & W of the nave.
For consumers who are not very interested in streaming many videos and you just want a decent tablet for a more affordable price, then $ 199 for the Kindle Four (and perhaps even Nook color) is defintiely more attractive and easier to pick up clients.
However, Nook Tablet will own, so the competition this holiday season warmer than previously expected.
