Google Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire?

Which is the better tablet option at £159? The Kindle Fire offers more storage, but are there any downsides. I realise not all Android apps are available on the Kindle Fire.

Depends what your own needs are for the tablet. The Kindle fire is a marginal better media device since it has HDMI out and the closed ecosystem for apps means (IMO) its probably more secure than the vanilla Android experience.

The Nexus 7 however is a virtual powerhouse in comparision (quad core over dual core) so if youre thinking of gaming then this is the best choice.

As with most things id recommend writing your own list of things you think you would be doing with the tablet, and then seeing from various reviews which is better for the tasks you want to do with it, that way you can be sure youve bought the "right" tablet

Also id wait till the 23rd Oct when the iPad mini will be announced and we can finally see what apple will bring to the 7" tablet table

Stelph, have you tried HDMI on any of tablets or phones? Is it good for anything? Can it stream 1080p youtube? 1080p H.264 files?
I'm just trying to figure out if HDMI is good to have. Don't see much use for it.
