The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet or the Amazon Kindle Fire – which one would you pick?
The announcement of the Amazon Kindle Fire shook the tablet scene as it did not merely bring another Android slate to the game – it introduced what some considered the first device with enough potential to challenge the iPad’s supremacy on the tablet market. With its highly competitive price of $199 and with a whole set of Amazon services deeply woven into it, the tablet might become one of the best selling gadgets this holiday season.

However, the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet was made official today – a $249 slate that will be running head to head with the Kindle Fire. Just like its nemesis, the Nook Tablet will come with a set of features picked with book readers in mind and will provide access to a list of entertainment services. The tablets appear to be similar in technical terms as well since both of them offer 7 inches of display real estate, come with 1GHz dual-core processors, and run customized versions of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

So, dear readers, if you had to pick, which one of these two would you put in your shopping cart – the Amazon Kindle Fire or the Barns & Noble Nook Tablet? Feel free to cast your vote in our poll below.
