    Question iPad Mini or Kindle Fire HD tablet?

    I just want to buy a tablet. I heard a lot about Kindle Fire HD tablet, people say that is a better product for less money. Is it true?

    Kindle Fire is good. But I prefer to wait for Nexus 10.

    All 'is good' and 'is nice' replies from now on must give some reasons to support their claim, or will be considered fluff.

    It's just a question of which ecosystem you are/want to be part of. If you're going to be buying/renting content primarily from Amazon, then the Fire will be a nicer experience. If you want to shop from the iTunes store and apps are important to you, then the iPad is a better choice. If you want apps but don't want to get into the Apple world, the Nexus 7 is the one to get.

    Hey John Sammers! I am not much aware of Kindle Fire HD tablet. I just know that it looks rich in display and have vivid colors as I have gone through a website related to that. On the other side, Apple iPad Mini is an amazing technology with unique features. It looks great due to its size of 7.9 inches. It is liked by almost each and every gadgets lovers. I like it too and I am thinking to buy one for me.

    I would add the new Microsoft Surface which has a keyboard option something the iPad could do with.

    There are keyboards for the iPad too. They don't "snap" with the device like Surface but still if you want one, they exist. Also, the OP asked about these two tablets specifically. The Surface with the touch cover is more expensive than both of them, so...

    At the moment Nexus 7 is definitely the best tablet on the market. It has the best hardware for the price, without mentioning the great android software support since it's a Google device.

    Here's an article I found comparing some of the cheapest tablets right now: http://www.mawista.com/blog/en/top-c...-for-students/

    Surprised to see one that costs $50, prices are getting lower each day.

    A very good article on tablets and especially the following reference:

    DIRT-CHEAP KNOCKOFFS You can find no-name tablets for $100 or even less. You can also find mystery-brand Chinese tablets in toy stores, marketed to children.

    Don’t buy them. They don’t have the apps, the features, the polish or the pleasure of the nicer ones. The junk drawer is already calling their names.

    I have had a Nexus 7 well over three months and highly delighted, apart from sharing saturated Wifi access points. Fortunately I console myself with reading an ebook

    Look into Microsoft or Google also! They have some competitive products.

    To stumble upon the best product you can read product reviews to make sure what product suits your budget and taste.
