New Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet VS. Amazon KINDLE Fire Tablet
These things are brand new, the Barnes & Noble one was just announced the day before yesterday and the Kindle one starts shipping on Nov. 15.

Kindle one is 199.00, Nook one is 249.00

The preliminary stuff I read made it sound like the Nook one is better.

Anyone going to jump on one of these, I am tempted, or would be if I had the money.

I will add more, links etc. to this thread.

The nook is the one that has an (SD?) card - I think that's the big advantage people were talking about, that it has a built in card reader.

Also I think (both?) have a lending-library arrangement with some classic titles for free.

Think of all the apps they'll have for these in a few weeks or months.

Would be perfect for traveling.

Don't mind me, I'm seldom enticed by any kind of new technology - my computers are ten years old and I've never owned a cell phone. I listen to vinyl LPs . .

I want one of these little tablets, dammit!

Kind of a silly thread I know, I don't normally keep up with the gadget world, I have never even owned a cell phone and my computers are 10 years old.

Maybe that's why I'm kind of interested in these tablets - I need a technology upgrade. Whether I'll get it or not I don't know. Would be nice for a long train trip I have coming up.

Here's another recent article, guy leaned toward the Kindle Fire:

Would I rather buy more LPs though? That's the equation I have to ask everytime I want something. This, or more LPs?
In theory LPs might be winning.

I wanted a kindle fire for Christmas. After researching for weeks my nerdy husband bought me a HP touchpad for $225 instead. I received my present early and love it! I have an amazon kindle app although it appears to still be in beta form. Have a wonderful day!

Is the touchpad bigger than these other new tablets? Glad you like your early Christmas present!

On the Nook Color, you can download PDF's no problem. I downloaded recently some free e-books from the archives. Going to have to take a look see at the new tablet. I wonder, will they take my Nook Color in as trade / reduced cost for the tablet? If so...that card is burning a HOLE in my asbestos lined wallet...
