[Drop Test] Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet vs Amazon Kindle Fire

Everyone loves a good drop test right? We may cherish and protect our beloved devices, but once in a while we do drop them, some people more than others. So if you are more prone to dropping things, you might want to watch this video.

The folks over at Gizmo Slip did some drop tests on both the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet and the AmazonĀ Kindle Fire. They drop them from various heights onto carpet and concrete. The results are similar, but the difference between these two devices really showed with the face-down drop onto concrete. There is a clear winner and a clear loser on this one. Check it out.

    That is pretty lame that the Fire with the gorilla glass just shattered. I guess all of that plastic around the Nook Tablet/Color really does have some other functionality other than being a bezel?

    Gorilla glass is really just a gimmick. The glass itself is strengthened by Asian workshops and quality can vary so much based on our experience. Look out for glass from other manufacturers going into these devices soon. Just done testing others against Gorilla with same strengthening procedure and others are much stronger.
