On the other hand, a Kindle user can stream a video and can also download it on the device for no extra charges. Non-Kindle users have to pay extra to purchase the movies and TV shows on their tablets.

Moreover, Prime membership holders all this is for free. Though every Kindle user can rent a movie or a TV show or anyother video, the Prime members have the facility to stream and download as many videos they want for free. This is a main attraction to those who can afford to live in Amazon’s ecosystem.

The only shortfall on Kindle’s account is the lack of HD compatibility. Its peers, on the other hand, offer HD video options in their devices via the same Amazon app for Android.

Music has become one of essential features of mobile devices, be it smartphone or a tablet. The use of music players on these devices is often more than any other feature. Amazon saw this as a window of opportunity and though it has a limited memory of 8 GB, it offers its users a vast variety of music.

The Amazon Cloud Player for Android is free and allows you access your stored Amazon cloud music as well as purchase new music. Your music library can then be downloaded or streamed directly from Amazon’s servers. Of the three major Amazon media experiences, this comparison is definitely the closest in terms of options and interface. The cloud services wear off the shortage of onboard storage.

The only shortcoming in Kindle as compared to other tablets like Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, iPad, Barnes and Noble’s Nook Tablet is the lack of expandable memory, dual cameras and Bluetooth for wireless connectivity.

For some reason unfathomable, Amazon scratched the Bluetooth option from its tablet. There is ony one camera at the back of the device, where other companies are introducing HD cameras both on the front and rear sides.
