The race to the bottom on the tablet space has officially begun. The Verge reports that the Barns & Noble Nook Tablet, will have an 8GB model for less that the $199.00 of the Kindle Fire.
If it is indeed cheaper (and it’s almost certain it will be), and has double the storage capacity of the Kindle, it is an interesting choice. Of course, the Kindle comes with all Amazon has to offer in terms of purchasing and content. The race has begun indeed.
Update: It’s official, $199 for 8GB model:
Ok, so yes, for the price of an iPad you can buy two Kindle Fires and one Kindle Reader. Also, for the price of a BMW I can buy two or three Corollas. It makes for a funny and catchy ad, but it’s a stupid comparison. The iPad costs more because in reality it does more, and has more capabilities. The Kindle is smaller, has less memory (storage), and has no cameras (not that the iPad two cameras are that good, but they’re there). Also, I don’t think it’s such a cool idea to give a Kindle Fire with my credit card information and one click purchase to my kid.
Algunos que han comprado el Kindle Fire se quejan del botón de apagar y prender, de cuan privado es el browser, y otras cosas. Conan O’Brien en su programa hizo una parodia de esto, les dejo el video:
