This week, Amazon’s new tablet is facing scrutiny from hardware experts and with its competitive pricing it surely undercuts Google Nexus 7, its chief rival. Purchasing the Kindle Fire HD may seem like a significant saving; however after we tack on the extras, including the wall charger, the tablet starts to lose its pricing advantage somewhat.
After a closer look, Amazon’s latest unveil may look significantly less appealing, as the Google Nexus 7 includes a separate charger out of the box. Google’s tablet easily beats its new competitor with 1.4GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, putting Kindle Fire HD to shame with its dual-core chip. Rather than appearing prominently on the shelves, the Kindle Fire HD could eventually emerge as a dull rival, especially if we consider the upcoming iPad Mini, which promises amazing design and performance. Nevertheless, Amazon could encourage current Kindle Fire owners to upgrade immediately.
