Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

9 Comments to Nexus 7 vs Kindle Fire HD (Comparison)

  1. Eludium Q36

    When figuring the cost of the KF HD you should also note the fact that you can get AT&T HSPA+ for $50/yr for their 250MB/mon casual browsing plan. So if you opt for this along with Amzn Prime to get the “full Amzn experience” then you’ve basically got a new $11/mon subscription, so that’s something people will have to wrap their minds around. Also, though alot of Prime videos are free, many will cost you $1.99 and up, especially for recent tv episodes, so don’t be fooled by the marketing for this.

  2. Nexus 7 has GPS. KF does not. Probably not important to someone who just uses the tablet for consuming Amazon media, but a consideration for someone who wants a more generally useful machine.

  3. Better is a subjective term. The KF is better for media users stuck in Amazon’s system where the N7 is better for people who want a full fledged tablet.

    Also, short of rooting and Romming a KF, the N7 has better storage capabilities via OTG. It’s actually cheaper to buy a 64 gig flash drive, get the media importer app and OTG cable then it is to upgrade to 16 gigs. Can’t do that with a stock KF, If you’re super nuts, you can connect one of those portable usb powered only 500 gig drives.
