I know nothing about the Nook Tablet but we have two Kindle Fires and they are awesome! We travel a lot and got them instead of having a DVD player installed in the car. The only downside is the charge only lasts about 5 hours or so when the kids are watching movies, which isnt much on a 16 hour road trip.

I have the Fire, and like that Amazon has a free paid app every day that I can use on my Kindle. Since I have been getting the free apps, I have gotten almost 100 apps for free, including a word processing program that I can use on the Kindle and a program that lets me remotely control my computer. These two apps have made it possible for me to use my Kindle like a full laptop. I looked at the two before I made my purchase, and the huge amount of Amazon resources available was what tipped the scale for me. I have Amazon Prime, which means that I can watch hundreds of movies and TV shows on my Fire for free. I originally purchased the Fire for my daughter and liked hers so much I ordered my own.

Nook Tablet...they take expandable memory and the battery lasts a long time.

On my kindle now. Love it! Lots of free books and apps. It stays charged very well. Fully charged it takes 2 days for the batt to die down. And i use it all day. You will love the fire!
