Please note, this is NOT an Android tablet. It does NOT have access to the Play Store and consequently has a limited selections of applications that have been approved by Amazon. I request for the misleading title to be corrected ASAP.

Why buy a Kindle tablet? Amazon have a bad record in updating their hardware:
the ebook reader sonly got minor updates and never recieved the latest software/features
and same for the Kindle Fire: the original tablet received one minor update but won't get the current software.

Kindle Fire made sense when all tablets were expensive, now just get a regular Android tablet instead of being locked in to Amazon's world (you can still buy Amazon content via the Kindle app, and for video/music you have more options: Netflix, Google selling music imminently in the Play store etc.)

HP Touchpad off Ebay and stick Cyanogen on it: Dual boot Android / WebOS tablet that is excellent build quality. If your lucky for sub £100 (although to be fair £120 is the going rate for HP Touchpad). Plus you have a 9.7inch tablet not a titchy 7" one.

Bare in mind you need to sign up for a credit account, 24Studio keep very little items in stock and you can pretty much guarentee they will get a mass of orders before fulfilling this which means you could be in for a long wait, they did this with motorola xoom and numerous laptop deals.

I am voting this cold becuase studio's lame ass service and extremely bad CS.

Why is a bigger screen always better?

Depends what you want it for.
I'm going for the 64Gb playbook at around £120. It's great for email and browsing but most importantly can store lots of music, movies and books for when I travel.

Google...?! That's pithy answer but seriously there's a number of pages out there with concise instructions and the files you need. It really is quite easy to do (done 3 myself), all you need is a PC and the USB cable that comes with the Touchpad.

Bigger screen isn't always better but most of the time it is. TVs, mobiles, monitors, etc all seem to be getting larger for a reason. If you're not travelling with your tablet and just playing with apps, watch films, browsing then the bigger the screen the easier it is and if you're just using at it home then battery life isn't a concern.

I think the Playbook is a great buy but the O2 code has expired so cheapest I can find it at the moment is £129...

Great tablet, nice find OP.

speakers are irrelevant to me on any tablet as i use headphones, build quality issues have been ironed out with the new batch that contaions 32gb and HDMI is not needed as you can airplay and even if you cant i just stick a film or whatever i want to watch on a usb stick and bang it in the tv or bluray player.

Both the Nexus 7 and KF HD offer very good value for money.

If you value processor speed, frequent updates etc then go for the Nexus 7
If you want HDMI out and decent speakers, Amazon daily free apps, X-ray etc then go for the KFHD.

This device is an absolute bargain at this price.

Honestly cant see why people like the Playbook. I had one for two weeks and to be honest found the lack of apps and poor web browsing ability to be a real frustration. Luckily it developed a fault so I could take it back and get a refund. Decided to keep the cash and wait for a nexus 7! Now im waiting to look at the iPad Mini before I decide!

And yes I know the Playbook is cheaper than the nexus 7 for alot more storage but seriously worth saving a little more dosh!

Can someone help me, I am after a tablet, I want hdmi, usb and 8 hour min bat life. be able to play good hd movies. What would you guys recommend?

It's a good price for this. Hot from me.

Because it's lighter, gets updates straight from Google right when they are released and it has a quad-core processor compared to the Fire's dual-core processor.

I think people should post about the Nexus 7 just in case someone isn't aware of it so they know what the alternative are and frankly the alternatives are much better.

For some balance here - yes the Nexus is a good geeky tablet and it wins on specs. Back in the real world, unless apps are optimised to use all four cores then they are superfluous. Additional cores helps in a multitasking environment. The Nexus does not multitask - it's one app at a time.

The Kindle Fire HD has better sound and a better screen plus HDMI-out. It also shows more of a web page (as there is less screen clutter) than the Nexus can. The Nexus has no full-screen browser, for example.

A lot of the Nexus' limitations can be fixed - head over to xda developers, root it, try out a few roms (carefully, mind), download some apps so you can watch the content you already own and you can make it do what it should be able to do out of the box.

...but for most people all this is too risky and time-consuming. People who just want to buy something well built and use it are going to get a Kindle or an iPad.

If i was buying one for myself i would go for the nexus (actually i would would wait for the windows pro surface).
But i will be buying one for my mum and after trying both out the kindle's UI is just so much better and easier to use, that's what sells it for me.

so what apps did you miss on the playbook? Cant understand why anyone would get the KHD or N7 over a playbook considering how much more you get for less money.

It also shows more of a web page (as there is less screen clutter) than the Nexus can. The Nexus has no full-screen browser, for example.



Actually this is complete B*******. Java is a multithreaded programming language, meaning it can run multiple processes at the same time from one app. Almost EVERY game and most apps run on at least 2 cores since the UI creates it's own thread to run on if you're using GL rather than the painfully slow software graphics rendering. It's very easy one app to run on 3+ cores at once and many do.

Don't forget also that Android runs multiple services in the background such as music, downloads, wifi, gps, checking your mail, news updates etc as well as background processes for apps.

P.S. on top of all that it does multitask, you can use the icon on the bottom to switch between apps. They're paused in the background unless they're running a service, but aren't closed completely like on other systems.


From what I've read the Kindle is ok for books etc, but general stuff like e-mail, calendar, alarms etc are buried away and clumsy to use, unlike the Nexus. Personally I'd suggest the Nexus for anyone over a Kindle, it's not exactly hard to use or understand and it all works great straight out of the box! It's not like old Android stuff.

I stand corrected. Apps on Android do stutter back to life when you switch between them. But it's not multitasking in the true sense. You cannot have a video playing while downloading while doing something else etc. I agree that Java can run multiple processes but apps still need to be programmed to optimise use of those cores. So far this has been done poorly on Android.

Android gives lots of flexibility but the price is complexity - you have to download all sorts of apps to get basic things working and hack around. I wouldn't give and Android tablet to a non-techie.

Great tablet. Love mine. Sound quality is the best of any tablet. HDMI port is handy too. Screen quality is also top notch. Would recommend it.

Get an app like PerfMon and you can see that most apps do use all the cores on tablets/phones.

The Nexus 7 is the first Android device I've owned that I felt did not needed tinkering, it works out of the box and I haven't felt the need to even root it.

I really don't think the Nexus 7 is a geeky tablet either, it has Android, the same as all the other Android tablets on the market so your point is kinda moot.

To be fair I think both you and the other poster have good points, I wouldn't call the Nexus 7 a geek tablet (mostly because its seen as insulting by some poeple) but then I wouldnt call the Kindle fire an Android tablet either, TBH it has much more in common with the iPad in my opinion. I has a heavily tailered OS and "ecosystem" that amazon control to ensure that the ecosystem is how they want it to be, and a lot of people who are less tech minded would be happy with this, hence why (like the iPad) people are willing to put up with lower specs and less freedom all for an easier life

The Nexus 7 is much more open which means you have a lot more flexability to make it do what you want, but then that also means you quite often have to put a little more effort in setting it up than you would with an iPad/Kindle. This can be a positive or a negative depending on your personal needs/requirements

The Nexus is a lot more open

All the comments about hardware between Nexus and Kindle are largely academic and has largely no practical impact as most people just get on with owning both devices and do internet surfing, mail, skype, messaging, twitter, face book..... these tablets are not pure hardware functions. The users use an Amazon service or an Apple Service or a Google service which is then implemented through application services (Application store) which are then control the hardware (which is doctored to best serve the business profit needs of Google, Amazon or Apple). The critcal hardware choice hinges whether there is video output (to another screen), expansion slot for memory, expansion slot of other uses, audio competence, tablet screen competence and the usability of the touch screen. But most people tend to forget that Google Nexus, Amazon Kindle and Apple iPAD control of the operating system is with the supplier. The functionalities are "locked" to the business needs of the supplier and not for your sake. However the other android suppliers supply a more open, less locked down OS.

As to the pricing of Nexus and Kindle, they are not as cheap as you think as the profiability of Google and Amazon rely heavily on you spending more money than you would otherwise do without these Kindles and Nexus. If their extra huge profitability projection did not depend on these cheap machines (i.e. users buy these low price hardware and then not spend a penny more) then the highly paid executives would better spend their time on a golf course than to mess around with hardware or price the Nexus and Kindle similar to Apple iPAD mini prices. Of course they are not daft and they are pretty sure that you will part with more money than you would otherwise intend to! At any time since Google and Amazon control their customised android they can turn on android tweaks and make you spend more money if their income is less than forecast since their huge bonuses depend on achieving target profitability (just use Google to search how much these excecutives get paid , it is in the order of US$40million for the top ones and they are rarely be wrong in their investment! So when people say these are cheap then they are implying that these executives are not going to make more money out of them!?

Uhm, you're more than a bit confused there mate.

Google OWNS Android and is the main developer of Android. It doesn't have a 'customized android' it is pure Android as pure as it can be before it's shipped to the rest of the companies that use Android. Amazon uses a heavily customized version of Android that is barely recognizable and often noted to be slow and fiddly compared to pure Android on the Nexus 7.

The hardware specs are mostly down to cost cutting or other measures rather than business needs, with the exception of SD expansion as memory means more money.

You forget that apple is also a content provider and is pushing for you to spend money on content with them as well through iTunes (i.e. buying apps, music, videos). The difference between Apple and the Android Tablets pricing is that Apple have such a tight grip on the tablet market that they can afford to sell tablets with such a high price (there were rumours of profits of about $100 per ipad) as people are willing to spend that money, Android tablet manufacturers havent had the same luck in the market and have struggled to sell at an equal price point so both Google and Amazon have had to go down the route of most risk and have had to sell the tablet at cost (or even a loss) in order to get some traction in the market.

Basically what you say above is correct for both Apple and Android, they are trying to make you continue to spend more money, its just apple has more clout with charging more are people are willing to pay more.

Also as a side note its actually easier to use an android tablet without spending extra money, both with its ability to load 3rd party media players to play any media file you have (rather than converting) and the fact that app prices on iOS are on average a lot higher as people with iPads are willing to spend more on an app (and people on Android tablets seem to be more willing/able to pirate)

Good point, Apple really do have a massive grip on the market. I think having a tablet is quite unneccessary, why bother when you can buy a phone and a normal kindle for cheaper overall?

My approach is to use iPAD as well as at least one a non big brandeded Android tablet (plus Windows PC and Android mobile phone+ Kindle) so that my IT solution is the best value for money. E.g. why pay money for an Apple iPAD app when a freeware on Windows does the job as well if not better? Any one who says xxx tablet is the best and discount other platforms have yet to be learned or realised most people will use whatever tool and platform to get a job done cost effectively.
