Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

"Why would anybody buy a Nexus Tablet when they can simply buy an Amazon Kindle Fire?


Android 4.1? Higher resolution screen? Twice the RAM? USB? Front facing camera?

Was that a serious question?

You might try http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/spec_comparison_new_ipad_v._... for a spec comparison. This Apple-centric site concludes, "we think that Nexus 7 and Jelly Bean combine to make for the first Android tablet that can reasonably give the iPad a run for its money in terms of the user experience".

Of course, if you're only interested in Amazon content, stick with the Fire. My wife owns one, and simply adores it. I, OTOH, have an iPad - but I think I see a Nexus in my future.

Improved hardware specs are of marginal benefit in a tablet. Kindle Fire does everything that tablet users need to do, and you answered that issue, yourself. Your wife is the average test case.
