    Kindle Fire vs. Nook Color 2

    The specs for the Nook Color 2 were leaked yesterday. For an extra $50, you get the following:

    1. Twice the RAM - 1gb vs. 512mb.
    2. Twice the storage - 16gb vs. 8gb.
    3. Blue Tooth
    4. Micro SD card reader
    5. Slightly faster CPU - 1.2 GHz vs. 1.0 GHz - probably not enough to make a difference though.

    Computerworld.com thinks the final price of the Nook Color 2 may be the same as the Kindle Fire. We should know by Monday. - Scratch that. The price is $50 higher.

    Why should I get a Kindle Fire instead of a Nook Color 2?

    Edit:

    6. Built in microphone - perfect for Skype.

    There's also the possibility that any Fire specific software could be installed on the Nook Tablet.

    The primary reason would be if you are a consumer of Amazon content. They have a much larger back end that B&N.

    If I got either, I would probably root it and install CM9 when it is finally released.

    I may wait another year though. My Nook Color is still holding strong.

    Those specs are indeed quite tempting! /sigh...

    This is just the beginning for amazon and kindle itself. Competition will be scarce.

    I'll look at the Nook 2 but there is more to it than specs.
    There will always be some new device with better specs so at some point you have to poop or get off the can.
    If the Nook 2 is a better speced tablet that's good but if the Fire does what I need it to do I'll be good with that until it's time to upgrade.
    If the Nook 2 is what you need, go for it.

    I'm planning on rooting my next tablet and installing CM9 when it is released. Both the Nook Color and the Kindle Fire should allow me to do this.

    Considering this, is there anything the Kindle can do better than the Nook Color? Remember I'm rooting it, so I won't be using any Amazon or B&N content.

    I like the aesthetic design of the original Nook color. The Fire is supposedly close in design to the Blackberry Playbook (in other words, dated). Bluetooth is also a desirable feature, and if the Nook C2 has is then I'll be cancelling my Fire order. B&N are being pretty smart about their announcement timing, and hopefully the NC2 will be available sooner than the Fire ships.

    Not sure if you read this part "If the Nook 2 is what you need, go for it."

    Yes I read the question. Why would ANYONE settle for less? What's the point? What am I missing?
