Kindle Fire vs. Kobo Vox:
Both e-readers are quality. A further analysis gives a very thorough look at the differences between the two. Kobo has buttons on the outside to operate hardware. The buttons can be unresponsive and require several hits to open due. Kobo has a single processor (800 MZ 572 MB Ram) whereas Kindle Fire has a Dual Processor (1 GHZ 572 MB Ram). Because of the processor difference, Kindle Fire moves quickly and smoothly, whereas the Kobo takes more time to load and moves slowly. The apps for Kobo must be downloaded at “Get Jar”. This site is unorganized and not so user friendly. Kindle Fire lets the consumer download free apps from Amazon site. There already installed apps on Fire. As far as memory, both have 8 MB; however, Kobo can extend to 32 MB. The Fire cannot be extended but ample storage is provided in the cloud. Overall, the Kindle Fire is more attractive on screen, more user friendly but caters to the U.S. customer. Many features like video downloads are not available internationally. Kobo Vox offers social media which is not present in the Kindle Fire. You can talk live as you are reading a book. It also lets readers earn achievement sand awards. The Kobo Vox , if you can deal with a more slower experience, is the international choice.
