I love my Nexus 7. I had the original Dell Streak just to try out the whole tablet thing, and ended up selling it once the Nexus came out. Love love love my Nexus!

The Kindle Fire, is that just the current version of the Kindle? And it still has the largest library of books, etc?

And is 15GB for a tablet a lot of space or would 32GB be more ideal?

on my 2012 Nexus, I bought the 32 because I wasn't sure how much I need. it's been a year and I have downloaded about 100 apps, and I still have 26 GB's available.

I think what takes up the room is music or movie collections or a lot of pictures I don't have any of that on my tablet.

so it just depends on what you'll be doing

A microSD slot is a good idea for backup. Stick it in another tablet if that one dies.

The Kindle Fire was the first Kindle Tablet.
Kindle Fire HD was #2.
The Kindle Fire HDX is the newest Kindle Tablet (#3).
This is NOT the newest E-Reader Kindle, that would be the Paperwhite.

Video and music collections (mp3s) take up the most space.

If you don't plan to use it to store large collections, then you probably won't need 32gb.

There are lots of great Droid apps and games that only use around 5mb each, so you could install 1000 of these apps and only use around 5gb.

Even some of the best games for Droid only use around 50 - 100mb each, so you could install 50 large sized games, and use only 3 - 5gb.

If you get a tablet like a Google Nexus that doesn't have a micro SD card slot, you can get a small cable called an OTG (On The Go) microUSB male to USB female connector. Then you can use the cable to plug in a mini flash USB drive (aka thumb drive). To use the cable, you need to "root" your tablet, and I believe doing this voids the manufacturer's warranty.

Google Nexus 7 2013 vs Nvidia Tegra Note 7

He never actually does a benchmark between the two and doesn't put the same wallpaper on both for a good comparison of resolution. I think he is biased toward the Nexus but that is OK.

My main use is for e-books. I ended up buying the 16GB on Cyber Monday.
