Kindle Fire vs Nook Tablet Drop Test and Specs Comparison

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr


Some dudes were crazy enough to do drop test pitting Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet and Barnes & Noble’s Nook Tablet, the two newest Android tablets that are essentially e-book readers.  Fortunately, these tablets are quite cheap compared to full-fledged tablets.  The Kindle Fire costs only $200 while the Nook Tablet costs $249.  This video really achieves nothing but it’s still worth knowing which of these new tablets will likely survive accidental drops.  For specs comparison, check out the table after the video.
