Comparison between Kindle Fire, iPad 2 ,Kobo Vox and Nook Color 2

Posted by on .

Amazon's first Android tablet---Kindle Fire was launched last November at a price of $199. It broke the market with a 4 million sales last December. But the market changes every moment, news said that Kindle Fire at most sold 1.3 million in the 2012 Q1, which is a huge drop from 3 months ago.

iPad is still the giant in the tablet market. With the new iPad's release, Apple is keeping enhancing its empire with more than 70% market share.

And another tycoon, Google, is not to be outdone and launches its 7 inches tablet, Nexus 7.

However, with so many great tablet products, we consumers can have more choices, it is good to us, and we expect more surprise.

If you are confused to decide which tablet to buy, you'd better compare with some top brands to make a choice. The following comparison between Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet, new iPad, Kobo Vox, and Nexus 7 may be useful to you.

According to many news resources, the new 7 inch Kindle Fire, and 10 inch Kindle Fire 2 are on the way. Amazon definitely won't sit around and watch Google and Apple carving up the market.

Online storage is not the same as memory.  You can't run apps with online storage, and online storage is only available when you have a wifi connection.   BTW.  The Vox also offers unlimited online starge.

The comparison of values under the "Memory" heading are inconsistent. Some state the memory on-board, some note cloud storage. These should be two different rows.
