The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet or the Amazon Kindle Fire – which one would you pick? (poll results)
The Amazon Kindle Fire and the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet – two affordable Android tablets that will be battling head to head this holiday season trying to land under your Christmas tree. But between the two of them, which one would you pick? That is the question that we asked you several days ago, and the results from our poll are already in.

In a classic photo-finish manner, the Amazon Kindle Fire holds the lead getting the votes of 36.42% or 181 of our readers. The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet comes second, but only by a hair as it is being voted for by 35.81% or 178 PhoneArena readers. Only 13.28% of the ones who participated in the poll find an Android tablet hovering near the $300 mark worth the extra cash while 14.49% are not interested in getting a tablet at all.

Even though we didn't get a definite winner in our poll, the results serve as an indication that the demand for cheap tablets, or at least ones marketed by companies consumers are familiar with, is present indeed. Both the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet are nearing their release, and perhaps only time will tell which one of them will be predominant.

lol, my vote was to wait a month for the Asus2 to come out so the Asus1 drops down to the 300 or less pricepoint, and just grab that. :)

wish granted bro. Best Buy is selling the Transformer as a door buster sale on Black Friday for $250 and they're also reducing the dock to $100. i MIGHT try to get in on that. if anything i can just sell it later on Swappa and put that money towards a Prime. (:

I think a lot of people who would come to Phonearena and take the poll are tech savy and are interested in hacking the Nook Tablet like they did the Nook Color. With the specs of the Nook, it would make a much better rooted tablet than the Fire. I think the fire is going to have much stronger sales amoung the "normal" population who will just be looking for a media consumption device.

Agree 100% that people want to root the nook color. Me personally my mom wants a tablet, but she has no use for the honey comb one's so the kindle fire is perfect. I like the design better and this device has gorilla glass.
