Everything from its size to its price point makes Google’s Nexus 7 a prime competitor to Amazon’s Kindle Fire (left).
Both tablets place an emphasis on multimedia, claiming to deliver an ideal user interface for reading magazines or watching TV on the go. What’s more, both devices start at $199 and have a 7-inch screen size.
But, the Nexus 7 does seem to have a leg up when it comes to weight and battery life. Weighing in at 12 ounces and touting nine hours of video playback, it beats out the Fire, which weighs a bulkier 14.6 ounces and gets seven and a half hours of playback.
