    Actully....

    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.
