The Comparison between Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7

Amazon Kindle Fire HD vs Google Nexus 7

Since Amazon released the version of 7-inch new Kindle Fire HD last week, the android tablet market is boiling after the launching of Nexus 7. Amazon announced its too faster than Nexus 7 with the same price of $199.So which one really deserves your cold hard cash?Let’s just do some comparison about them.

Appearance


Kindle Fire HD has 7-inch HD LCD display working at the same 1280 x 800 pixel resolution as the Nexus 7 launched with a 7-inch LCD display running at a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution that offers decent angles and good contrast levels.

Amazon also reckons it's got the edge with its polarising filter improveing the IPS display's viewing angles and anti-glare technology cutting glare by around one-quarter while Nexus 7 doesn’t offer them. The Kindle Fire HD also has a Micro-HDMI connector for HD video output. Nexus has only Micro USB port.

The Kindle Fire HD has an "HD" front-facing camera for video chat,while the Nexus 7 has a 1.2MP front-facing video camera for the same purpose. The Kindle Fire also has a pair of dual-driver stereo speakers with Dolby Digital Plus to deliver decent music playback and clearer video dialogue. The Nexus 7 has a plain old speaker.

One small detail is the fact that the 7-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD, a tab that measures 193 x 137 x 10.3 mm with 395 grams, is a bit thinner but heavier than the Google Nexus 7 measuring 198.5 x 120 x 10.5 mm and weighing 340 grams. However, the Nexus 7 has a significantly smaller footprint.

Important Tech specs

The Kindle Fire HD processor is a Texas Instruments OMAP4 4460 (its bigger 8.9-inch brother has a 4470, which has faster graphics), which is a dual-core model running at 1.2GHz. The Nexus 7 processor is a Tegra 3, a quad-core rated at 1.3GHz. Both devices promise all-day battery life, with the Kindle Fire HD promising 11 hours of continuous use and the Nexus 7 nine.

For storage, Amazon Kindle Fire HD comes with 16GB and 32GB ,which is double the amount of storage as the Nexus 7 comes with 8GB and 16GB.

For connectivity,both devices are Wi-Fi only (a 3G Nexus 7 is incoming), and the Kindle Fire has has dual MIMO Wi-Fi antennas and operates in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, and  using MIMO data transfer technology means stronger Wi-Fi reception and smoother video and music streaming. The Nexus 7 has a single antenna and only uses the increasingly crowded 2.4GHz frequency band, but it does have an NFC chip for device-to-device communication, and built-in GPS, accelerometer and magnetometer for location- and position-based apps.


Entertainment


Undoubtedly, the cool tricks on the new Kindle Fire HD are surely to appeal to lots of folks. Whispersync with Voice pairs reading with an audiobook, which is notably cool, especially when Samuel L. Jackson is reading to you. X-Ray is a great way to track down all of the mentions of a specific term within a book or a movie. And FreeTime is a set of parental controls that lets parents set limits on time and content.

Also,you can find a remarkable library of ebooks is built by Amazon for powering Kindles, but if you're into watching new shows and downloading media at large, you'll probably be better served by Amazon's ecosystem. But if it's apps, Google's Nexus 7 has the entire Google Play app market at its fingertips, which means a wider, better selection of games and software across the board.

Choice

If you just like to watch some movies or read some books,or a present to give to your parents, I believe Amazon Kindle Fire HD is your best choice, but if you are someone on a tight budget, students looking for a cheap laptop replacement , business travelers, or the mobile gamer, you may need to buy a Nexus 7.Of course, there are people who don’t mind the thing above, then just follow your hearts.

Amazon 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD VS Apple New iPad

Kindle Fire HD vs New iPad
With the faster and taller iPhone 5’s release today, Apple ensures its dominant space in technology again. Either smartphone or tablet, it is difficult to replace the Apple for both Google and Amazon. Amazon just wants to maintain more space on the tablet market and it announced the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD aiming to overthrow the Google Nexus 7 as the best budget tablet (price range: $199 – $249), and the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD aiming to be a high-end device with the considerably price starting at just $299, lower than other tablets featuring the same kind of specs. And Apple’s iPad Mini is not unveiled and is anticipated to arise on Oct.

Apparently, Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch will give heavy pressure on iPad with high-resolution display (1920 x 1200)and MIMO (multi-input/output) functionality, which Amazon claims will give the Kindle Fire HD 40 percent faster Wi-Fi than the iPad. But what exactly are better, Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch or the New iPad?So let’s just compare them.

Display

The 8.9-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD has an 8.9-inch display (DUH!) that works at a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution (the same resolution used by the ASUS Transformer Prime Infinity) and a PPI(Pixel Per Inch) of 254.While the new iPad is at 9.7 inches with LED-backlit IPS TFT display uses a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution, the highest resolution you’ll encounter on any tablet currently announced , and a PPI density of 264, also currently a valid record in the tablet market.

You maybe think that the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD is not better than the New iPad from this aspect, but actually with the PPI of 254, the display on the 8.9 inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD is almost as sharp as that of the Apple iPad 3, although it is 0.8 inches smaller.

Besides, one advantage that the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD has over the new iPad is the first’s anti-glare technology which you can creat a display that’s easy to view, even in overhead light.

Hardware


Amazon announced the 8.9-inch Kindle HD uses Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 chips and the chip is faster than the Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC with a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor.Apple has used the new A5X chip, currently the fastest chip on the market when it comes to both CPU and GPU tests, inside the third-generation iPad with a 1.0Ghz dual-core processor. The performance offered by the CPU inside the Amazon Kindle Fire will be comparable, but the latter will not be able to compete against the iPad’s more powerful GPU.On to the amount of RAM memory, the latest version of Apple’s iPad carries 1GB of RAM, while the 8.9-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD is presumably using the same amount of RAM.

The Wi-Fi 8.9-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD, features a HD front-facing camera for Skype calls, comes in 16GB or 32GB models, Amazon is throwing in 20GB of cloud storage space for your own stuff, and unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content. The new iPad, which has a 5MP rear facing camera capable of 1080p videos and a VGA camera for video chatting comes in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions and offers up to 5GB of iCloud storage no matter whether they’re cellular-enabled or Wi-Fi-only versions.


The LTE version of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD (8.9 inches) will only work with AT&T while The LTE-enabled version of the new Apple iPad can work with both Verizon and AT&T.

OS and Ecosystem

 

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is powered by a forked version of Android 4.0 be able to get new apps from the Amazon Appstore. Basically you can do with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD is to access Amazon’s Appstore or buy books, music and magazines or rent movies. Google’s products are virtually non-existent on all the new Amazon Kindle tablets.The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is also well integrated with Amazon's services, so Amazon Prime users will get access to thousands of free streaming videos and Prime users will also get the Kindle Lending Program, which grants free access to eBooks. Your content will be stored and accessible from the Amazon Cloud. Amazon's content ecosystem is roughly equivalent with what you can find in iTunes, although Apple may have a slight edge.

Apple’s new iPad uses iOS 5, an OS that offers over 550,000 apps inside the App Store. As far as the quality of the available apps goes, the wide diversity of quality, tablet-optimized apps offered by the iPad may be unrivaled even by fully-fledged Android tablets. Apple also has a stronger ecosystem than Amazon when it comes to tablets. It definitely has the advantage when it comes to apps and I'd give it a slight edge in terms of movies, TV shows and music choices. The New iPad ecosystem extends beyond software though, as you can find all sorts of neat covers and accessories specifically designed for the Apple tablet.

Price


The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 will be significantly cheaper than the new iPad. You can also pick up a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 with 32GB for $369 and the $499 version gets you 32GB and 4G LTE connectivity ($50 a month for 250MB of data). And the new iPad costs $499 with 16GB. A 32GB version costs $599, a 64GB model costs $699 and versions with integrated 4G LTE modems cost $629, $729 and $829 for 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions.

The Apple new iPad has been available since March this year, while the Amazon Kindle Fire HD will be released on November 20.

Verdict

All in all, the 8.9-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD is nearly as powerful as the iPad though iPad is in reality better than it. But if you just want to look a high-end entertain tablet, I think it will be a better choice than iPad, after all, not everyone can afford the iPad.

The 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD is currently the tablet that offers the best bang for buck ratio around. And if you have interest in it, just wait for its coming.

Root or Not Root Your Android Tablets and How?

Android tablet root
If you’ve had an Android device for a while, you’ll have heard of rooting: you just wonder what exactly is “root”, why and how to do it. With the question, you will get a full understanding here.

What is “Root”?

Android is based on Linux. On Linux and other UNIX-like operating systems, the rooted user is equivalent to the Administrator user on Windows. After rooting your device, you have full access to the entire system and can run special types of apps that require root permissions. These apps can disable bloatware, control app permissions, enable tethering, and do lots of other cool things. By default, you don’t have root access to your Android device, and certain apps won’t function without root access.

In a summery, root is breaking certain safeguards placed on your device so that you have complete control over the underlying software and operating system.

Pros and Cons

For rooting system, some Android users will tell you that you’re not getting the full Android experience if you don’t root while others are perfectly happy with their android tablets in the state they bought them, and see no reason to change. So why do people have the different opinion for this? We should see the pros and cons of rooting our android system.

Pros

  • More Customization Options
Rooting allows you to install custom-tailored ROMs to install any current and future OS’s. Some developers have created their own custom ROMs, like CyanogenMod. Others then create new themes for these ROMs, which can totally revamp the way the device looks, acts, and feels. Stock Android already allows for a lot of customization, but this takes it to the next level.
  • Increase Performance or Battery Life
Once rooted, you’ll also be able to alter this yourself. You can replace many parts of the “Android core.” Doing so, you can add new themes, edit the core apps (Maps, Calendar, clock, etc.), change the recovery and boot images, add Linux binaries, and many more.
  • More application choices
You will be able to install apps that are only compatible with rooted phones. For instance, you can install an app for taking a screenshot of your phone, or for overclocking your device, or for tethering.
  • Install applications to your SD card
Once you’ve rooted your tablet, you’ll be able to completely move apps to the SD card leaving you plenty of room on your internal storage.
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Tethering
After having rooted your tablet, you can also use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth tethering to share your cellular data connection with your laptop, PC, or other capable mobile devices.

Cons

  • Void Your Warranty
The most notable risk of rooting is that you will void any warranty that you have on your device .That is to say, if the tablet starts overheating or repeatedly restarting or suffering any other type of malfunction or there is something wrong with calls, text messages, and mobile Internet and any problems like that, your manufacturer and network provider are both entitled to refuse to fix.
  • Brick Your Tablets
Rooting is not a complicated procedure. However, some users may occasionally run into the problem of bricking the tablet.“Bricking” means breaking the device and making it about as useful as a brick. So do a little bit of research first and see if other people report success rooting your tablet is a good idea.
  • Security
If you’re using Google Wallet for NFC payments, you may want to reconsider rooting your tablet. The reason is that Google Wallet has vulnerability on rooted tablets that could allow other apps to access your PIN and other wallet information. Of course, Google Wallet will display a warning message if you run it on a rooted tablet.
  • Lose Your OTA Updates
Your tablet will receive over-the-air updates to its version of Android, for example, little bug fixes or a huge upgrade. If you’ve rooted your tablet, then trying to install any these updates will cause you to lose root — and you will not be able to re-root until someone figures out how to do that for the new version you just upgraded to.

How?


If you decide to root your android tablet after thinking twice,you just want to know how to root the tablet. It is a simple affair if you have the proper application. Before you download the rooting app to root your tablet, make sure the rooting app supports your tablet. Here are the apps that can help you root an Android tablet.

1. Universal 1-Click Root 

Use a well-known exploit to root. It cannot support Android versions 2.2.1 or above.

2. Easier 1-2-3 Droid 2 Root 

This is a desktop based rooting application working on Windows/Linux/Mac. Download the program, connect your tablet to the computer and run the software to root.

3. z4Root
It changes the root binaries to do its magic.
Download and install it on your tablet to root.

4.SuperOneClick Root 

This is the best rooting application ever working on Windows/Linux. Download it to your computer, connect your tablet and root it.

Now you should know the rooting better and whether you decide to root or not, it all depends on you.

Amazon will offer $15 opt-out for ads on New Kindle Fire tablets

Kindle Fire HD ads
The new Kindle Fire HD tablets from Amazon have good hardware and software technology inside that belies the low pricing. It turns out that pricing is low due to the inclusion of ads on the Fire HD lock screen and home screen.

These ads will be on all Kindle Fire HD models according to Amazon, without the ability to opt-out. Ads on Kindles are nothing new as Amazon has offered models of the ereader with ads at a lower price for some time.

Kindle buyers have the option to pay a little more for models sans ads or go cheap and put up with the ads. To be fair the Kindle ads have never been obtrusive.

The ads on the new Kindle Fire HD tablets will be on the lock screen that is displayed every time you turn the device on. These ads will include "sponsored screen savers" according to Amazon. The lock screen disappears as soon as you unlock the display so this may not be an issue with most users.

The other ads will be on the lower left corner of the home screen. Amazon insists they will not interfere with the normal use of the tablet, but that will be up to each user. It cannot be turned off so it's there to stay.

Amazon took this ad-supported route no doubt to keep the prices of the Kindle Fire HD as low as possible so it may be an acceptable trade-off for most.

It turns out the ads will "be available in both the US and the UK".And Amazon is now stating that no-ad options will be available for the Kindle Fire HD for $15.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD,A Big Hit on Tablet Market After Nexus 7

Amazon Kindle Fire HD
When Google Nexus 7 has proved itself by its tremendous success, Amazon takes the wraps off people’s long-anticipated new tablets, the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD and the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD. Although the shipment is said to be on Sep. 14, the order has already started yesterday.
With the price of $199, the same as the current darling, the Nexus 7, the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD adds more storage (16GB), faster performance, and a high-resolution display (1280x800) into the mix and with better hardware, which will the new kindle fire HD go even further to eat into the competition. Also you can take the 32GB for $249 (32GB).

Along with a slightly bigger screen (1920x1200),the larger 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD has the same hardware improvements. It is designed for content consumption in every way, and at $299 will likely be a big holiday seller. It will be available in November to reach that holiday crowd. There's also an extra-fancy Fire HD with AT&T's 4G LTE support priced at $499 for 32GB and $599 for 64GB.

The new Kindle Fire HD also includes dual-band 2.4 and 5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi. And Amazon announces that they use two antennas the first time in a tablet for 802.11n' built-in MIMO (multiple input, multiple outputs) functionality and make the Kindle Fire HD 21 percent faster Wi-Fi than the iPad. For a processor, the new Kindle Fire HD uses a Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 processor, which is a quad-core ARM-based processor. Bezos claims this processor is faster than Nvidia’s Tegra 3.What android system it will run is not certain.

Speaking of the features, lots of consumerism features are supplied such as FreeTime to let your kids not spend all day on the tablet; Dolby speakers for music and movies; X-Ray for Movies to let you get film info from IMDB while you're watching a film; and so on. Besides, the tablet comes with Microsoft Exchange support and out of the box can sync e-mail, contacts and calendars with Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo.

So you maybe wonder whether Amazon has profits to sell these at this price point. Well as Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said, “We want to make money when people use our device not when they buy our devices.” And it really gives all the people especially the kindle users the big surprise with its amazing performance and low price.

The Kindle Fire HD won’t offer a pure Android experience like the Nexus 7, but for Kindle users, Amazon Prime members, and those simply looking for a low-priced device to consume media on, the HD makes an extremely convincing argument in its favor, and also it will be a powerful competitor for both Google Nexus 7 and Apple iPad series including the forthcoming iPad Mini.

Kindle Fire 2 and Glowing Kindle Touch Released on September 6

Amazon is expected to announce the second version of its Kindle Fire tablet at a press conference in Santa Monica, California, on 6 September. The Fire may come in both 7in and — less likely — 10in versions, along with an improved Kindle Touch. One tablet will be supported by advertising to reduce the cost, according to an unconfirmed report in the Wall Street Journal.

While predictions are always risky, Amazon sent us the biggest possible hint yesterday (Thursday), with the announcement that the original Kindle Fire had sold out forever. Visit the Amazon.com page for the $199 Kindle Fire, for example, and there are no new ones for sale, only second-hand products. The $99 Kindle Touch is listed as "Currently unavailable".

There is no prospect of Amazon discontinuing these products, so there must be new versions ready to launch.

A few details of the Kindle Fire 2 (or Kindle Blaze, or whatever) have already appeared. The most significant is an increase in screen resolution from 1024 x 600 pixels to 1280 x 800. The larger format is already used by other tablets, including Google's similarly-priced Nexus 7.

Last month, DisplayMate president Raymond Soneira told the AllThingsD website that this represented "a 67 percent increase in total pixels, and it is visually significant. It gives the display a PPI (pixels per inch) of 216." This should improve the readability of text, and will also enable the Kindle Fire 2 to show HD (720p) videos.

For comparison, Apple's iPad had a lower resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, which was doubled to 2048 x 1536 in the iPad 3. Apple also had to thicken the iPad 3 slightly to provide extra battery power to support the extra pixels, though the Kindle Fire 2 is unlikely to need this.

The Comparision: Android4.1 Jelly Bean vs. iOS 6 vs. Windows Phone 8

When it comes to operating system, you must know the mainstream operating system -Android, iOS and Windows Phone. And these days Android4.1 Jelly Bean and iOS 6 and Windows Phone 8 have become very hot. Plenty of folks are interested in the three systems, whether they decide to buy a tablet or a smartphone. But what exactly are these systems? Let’s take a closer look at them and compare them in a few aspects.
Android vs. iOS 6 vs. Windows Phone
Apps
Android is currently at 600,000 total apps. Most of those will run on tablets, but the number of tablet-optimized offerings is obviously lower than iOS (Google won't give an official number, but a quick run through Google Play makes the situation abundantly clear).

Apple owns totally 650,000 apps in the app store and 225,000 of them are for iPad.

Windows Phone currently has 100,000 apps available for download, of course less than the other two. Since the Windows 8 tablet is to be waited, there are no apps for tablet at the moment.

10 things to Start your New Nexus 7 tablet

Nexus 7's home
The Nexus 7 tablet by Google is a great gadget for the price, but can be overwhelming for the new buyer. That's what it seems from the constant correspondence I get from new buyers asking me what to do first with the new purchase. Colleague David Gewirtz is in that crowd, having just bought a Nexus 7 and complaining to me he can't find online what he should do first. This is for David and all the others in the same boat.

Once your Nexus 7 is out of the box follow the onscreen instructions to get it set up for use. That entails supplying your Google Account (aka Gmail) information and entering in your WiFi network details.
