I am looking to get a 7" tablet this year and may be split between these two, depending on UK price and if they ever get launched in the UK. Although I think the Asus should be out in the first half of this year here? Anyway, you all know the Kindle Fire, well made, tough, has what I think is a very nice interface design and layout, has the Amazon eco system and cloud storage, it has the Kindle experience. Runs Android 2.3. Kindle Fire - Full Color 7" Multi-Touch Display with Wi-Fi - More than a Tablet Or the Asus, this was announced at CES this week, it has a 7" IPS screen, higher resolution then the Fire, has the new Nvidia Tegra 3 chip, new screen tech to make it faster at scrolling, expandable memory, 8mpx rear camera, not sure about the rest like GPS or bluetooth? It will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich which I think is 4.0? 16gb or 32gb storage.
