Ebook reader/ tablet?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm trying to pick a good ebook reader that can be used as a tablet for playing some games and stuff. So far have been trying to decide between

i) Kindle Fire
ii) Ainol Nova 7 advantage

The Kindle has better specs (camera is unnecessary), but lacks slots for memory cards. (Doubt 8gb would be sufficient and my wifi is pretty crappy).

What would you guys recommend? Any other similar products I should consider? (No ipads, they are almost twice the price here).

Thanks,
Jiv

You might consider the Nook Tablet - it's like a Kindle fire but with a memory card. For ebook reading I would still recommend a 79$ E-Ink Kindke even if you can't play games on it, the reading part is secondary on a tablet like the Fire and it's the main focus point on the regular Kindle

My Kindle Fire is 1 of my favorite purchases of the last year. You can store anything you want on Amazon's cloud But if you're going to be without WiFi obviously you would need to move it to the Fire from the cloud. I know nothing about the 2nd device you mentioned but I can honestly say I'm really happy with my Fire.

Thanks guys for the reply.

@ Evilnok
Yea, thats my biggest worry, I have very bad internet here and I'm pretty sure the 8gb wouldnt be enough.

@Dragosmp
I was originally thinking of getting the $79 E-ink reader, but they dont have them in Singapore. My choices are pretty much limited to

Ipad (500+ sgd)
Ipad 2 (1000+sgd)
Ainol Novo 7 ( 250+ sgd)
Kindle Fire (280sgd)

and maybe the Asus Transformer?
