How and what is rooting? Answer to -question
Too bad the nook doesnt allow apps without rooting it ( rooting it is a pain in the butthole)
Kindle= five times faster proccer. Nook= the nook is slower. While the nook was invinted in 2011 the kindle was made in 2009. While the nook is made foe books, the kindle is made foe apps while it is secondly made foe books. It also has a much slower proccer. The nook does have more memory, while the kindlefire has a better screen. Also the kindle has a bluecore camera, which is bright crisp and clear. The nook does allow lendme while the kindle has a much less attractive store. Also for hackera the nook is much easier to hack then the kindle. Due to the kindles secret virus programmer that will stop any hacking. But the kindle will almost always get tons of updates while the nook has been getting less. But the nook shop has much more books. Which is better, pick foe your self. Please post a comment about how good this and which you pick. In my openion, the kindlefire is the winner
The best guide to the Nook Tablet and Color out there!
