eReader color Tablets is better then most full-fledge Cheap Budget Tablets!

 The Amazon Kindle Fire, Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet, and Kobo Vox eReader Tablet can be a better choice then a budget full-fledge tablet which cost about the same price range.

The main reasons I think a eReader Tablet is better then Full-Fledge tablets which are in the same price range is because the Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet both have dual-core 1GHz CPU, 512MB for the Kindle Fire and 1GB for the Nook Tablet,  and a high resolution capacitive multi-touch screen. The Kobo Vox has a slower single core CPU at 800 MHz. but it has a high resolution screen. The Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet, and Vox software and user interface are also optimized for reading compared to a standard Google Android tablet which sometimes is not optimized for a better reading experience because of a lack of eReading apps, and user interfaces which are more optimized for cell phones then 7 inch devices.

The storage for eReader Tablets is usually 8GB or more compared to 2GB-4GB on lowend tablets.

802.11N wireless networking/internet is also found on eReader Tablets instead of 802.11G wireless on budget Tablets which is a lot slower then 802.11N wireless.

Plus, you get a more well built product in most cases when you buy a eReader Tablet from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo since they generally make quality products compared to unknown brands which very few people heard of for being a quality brand.

The few advantage of a budget tablet is a low resolution webcam and camera, Mic, microSD memory card slot, and micro-HDMI which is not available on some eReader Tablets. Although, the Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet and Kobo Vox has a MicroSD card slot. The Nook Tablet has a mic, but the Kindle Fire, and Vox don't have a Mic.

The main disadvantage of some cheaper tablet are resistive touch screens, slower CPU which makes apps run slower, low resolution at 800x480 which makes it harder to read small text, and make video look like online video quality instead of HD quality like a higher resolution screen, less RAM which makes multitasking slow, slower wireless G networking adapters, and lack of updates from the company. I also heard some cheap tablet makers have poor technical support compared to Amazon.

I live in Canada, so the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet is not available for me, so I decided to get the Kobo Vox which is pretty good for a Canadian eReader Tablet made by a Canadian brand because it has a high resolution capacitive multi-FFS+ outdoor optimize viewing screen, touch screen which is 1024x 600, 800MHz CPU, 512MB, 8GB of storage, 802.11N wireless, MicroSD card, volume controls, and more. I also did not have to pay for shipping and handling cost since I can buy the Kobo Vox from a local store vs. importing an American eReader tablet which is expensive.

I have been pretty happy with it because it has a high resolution screen, and pretty fast wireless internet. The MicroSD Memory card is pretty useful when I want to carry GBs of files on a MicroSD, or to sideload apps which I downloaded from my PC.

The free selections of Apps on Getjar is pretty good, and I found most of the Apps I need to use for free, and I can also sideload apps via the internet, or from a MicroSD card with a file manager app.

The Rubber Quilted back on the Vox is also comfortable to hold, and protects the Vox, and your Table from scratches because rubber does not scratch or cause scratches. It also makes it harder for your Vox to slip off the table because rubber grips onto your Table like a tire to the road.

I recommend the Kobo Vox if the Kindle Fire, and Nook Tablet is not available in your country because you don't live in the US.
