I'll have to agree that the Nook (the Nook Tablet 16GB, expeshally) is better than the Kindle, but thr Kindle isn't stupid ether. Nooks can hold more space (with those Micro memory cards, that is), and theres more personolizing options, but besides these facts, the Kindle (I'm talking about the Kindle fire) has pretty much the same fetures as a Nook dos.

All yall are stupid cause if u think the kindle is so stupid why would u take the time to write a mean stupid review about it. And nooks and kindles are both great products. My friend has the first kindle and sometimes we play with each of our products! Her kindle is fun and she thinks my nook is fun also. So dont b a booger about nooks and kindles both are great. So if u want a nook or a kindle thats fine Love, .#@:)!7

Since september 6, Amazon has been selling new Kindle Fires (wich sone of you may alredy know about). All of them (with the exeption of the 16gb Fires) have more storage than the nook. And, best of all, the new Kindle Fires are in HD (wich basicly means that some of the content that you can put on them are displayed in 3D, and you don't need 3D glasses, eather), wich defunautly outdose the nook. I was originoly going to get the nook Tablet 16gb, but sine the new Kindle releses, I'v changed my mind. And I'd suggest that all of you get them, too.
