Battle of the Tablets (Nexus 7, NOOK HD, Kindle Fire HD) – Part 1

1
Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ Tablet
NOOK HD+ (9″)

As an app maker, I need to have a variety of hardware for testing. This is especially true of Android where each phone and tablet is a little different. That’s how I came to have a Google Nexus 7, an Amazon Kindle Fire HD, and a NOOK HD+. I mixed it up and got the 7″ Kindle Fire HD and the 9″ NOOK HD+ so it’s not 100% apples to apples – and no Apples. 🙂

The Contenders

  • Google Nexus 7 – 7″ 1280×800 HD display, $199 for a 16GB model.
  • Amazon Kindle Fire HD – 7″ 1280×800 HD display, $199 for a 16GB ad-supported model ($15 more to remove lock screen ads) – no power supply included.
  • Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ – 9″ 1920×1280 HD display, $269 for a 16GB model (the NOOK HD is a more comparable model at $199 for an 8GB model or with a higher density 1440 x 900 7″ display)
    NOTE: The NOOK HD and HD+ allow you to add up to 64GB via a microSD slot.

The comparison begins after the break.

New App on the Way

Red chile on  wooden cutting boardWhitneyApps will release an exciting new app very soon (in the next week or two depending on App Store approval processes).

There’s nothing like this app out there!. Check here or “like” us on Facebook to be the first to know. The chile on the right is one of the “characters” from the new app.  It’s interactive, it’s lots of fun, and it’s even useful. And, of course, it’s in HD. (It looks great on Kindle Fire HD, NOOK HD/HD+, Nexus 7, Galaxy Note, and – on the emulator – Nexus 10.)

Edit (November 29, 2012): It was later than we planned, but “Veggie Clock” is in Google Play now and should be in Amazon Appstore and NOOK Apps Shop in early December (be notified by email when it’s in your preferred app store).
