B&N Nook Tablet vs. Amazon Kindle Fire 138

DeviceGuru writes with this excerpt: "Barnes & Noble is expected to announce a 7-inch color tablet on November 7th, positioning it head-to-head with Amazon's recently announced Kindle Fire. B&N's Nook Tablet is rumored to have a slightly faster processor, twice the RAM and flash, and a $50 price premium relative to Amazon's tablet, among other differences. The quick-reference table in this article compares key features and specs of the two 7-inch Android tablets, based on a combination of leaked data published at plus some additional data from B&N's existing Nook Color specs, which seems to have much in common with this new, higher-end Nook model."

    The same reason why music companies wanted $2 a single song download.

    They don't want digital disbrution cutting into their existing models so they are pricing them out of the park.

    unfortunately there is no apple for ebooks who will stand up and say this is the price suck it up.

    Also the difference between a ebook and real book is the printing, binding, and distbution costs. Since every ebook still needs to be typesetted for the given format. (pdf, epub, etc)

User hostile.
