Steve Jobs gave us the iPad, and now that he's gone, we've got what's basically an explosion of similar products showing up to wage war on the sexy Apple tablet. The latest challengers: Amazon's Kindle Fire (pictured left), which launches on November 15, and the Nook Tablet (pictured right), which arrives three days later. The two brands seem to want to fight to the death, take one another down, go head-to-head, and make sure they're the ones everyone's buying for themselves and loved ones this holiday season.
There are plenty of reviews for each -- none of which have seemed to be able to define a clear winner. For every plus the Kindle Fire has (like, say, having a slimmer profile), the Tablet has a perk (weighs 5 ounces less). For every minus, the same. Both have 7-inch displays and run on their own version of Android. And let's be honest -- both are basically eReaders-turned-glorified portable TVs.
