Kindle Touch, Kindle Touch 3g & Kindle Keyboard 3G

  • Cannot change to landscape view.
  • Cannot turn the page wile zoomed in on the text.

Kindle Fire

  • None


I have used all the Amazon kindles and while each one was easy to use, high quality and very enjoyable, for me the basic Amazon Kindle and the Amazon Kindle Fire where the best.

If you just want something you can read books on then I recommend the basic Kindle which is under $100, you wont find an e-reader cheaper than that of quality.

If you are looking for something that is similar to the I Pad but for quarter of the price (under $200) then the Amazon Kindle Fire is definitely what I recommend. I have used the I Pad and while I have to say I think it’s slightly better than the Kindle Fire, it’s not better by much and I’m sure the more I use the Amazon Kindle fire the More I will get to enjoy it – More than the I Pad? Maybe.

The Nook is a tablet that I only recently discovered. It is a little more expensive than the Amazon Kindle Fire which is the closest model from the Kindles that matches what the Nook has. Below you will find out what I tough about the Nook etc. Then I will give the results on which one I found to be the best.

What’s Being Said About The Nook

I’m somewhat of a techno geek. I like new gadgets and i tend to ask myself how will this be developed over time. In the case of the nook color they got it right. Taz

Barnes and Noble did something pretty clever with their latest eBook reader. They didn’t try to mimic the Kindle, probably because they knew they couldn’t match it. Instead, they looked at what the Kindle didn’t have and they incorporated that into their newest Nook. Steve

I have had my Nook for over a year now and I think it is a great ereader. E. Leung ‘Miharu Sama’

The Barnes and Noble NOOK is a good quality tablet that has some really unique features the Amazon Kindle does not offer. I really did not think the Nook would be that good, but I was pleasantly surprised when I started using it. One thing that I really liked about the Nook was the no ads, which you can pay extra to get rid of with the Kindle, however way pay extra when the Nook does not even try to put ads on there tablet.

The Winner

I have to say that I enjoyed using the Kindle and the Nook, but when it comes to the Kindle vs Nook I have to give it right now to the Kindle wins.

While there where things I liked about the Nook that the Kindle did not offer, I just feel as if the Nook needs a few more improvements before it is as good as the kindle is.

Add on the fact that nearly all expect one of the Kindles is cheaper than the Nook, then right now it just has to go with the Kindle.

However what I will say is in the near future I may be updating this as I really do think developed more the Nook has huge potential as a tablet, and is definitely a good alternative over the mega expensive I pad.
