Even a noob knows that the Nexus 7 is a better buy! Yes, boys and girls, the new $199 7" Fire HD is vastly inferior to the $199 Nexus 7.
You're good at scalping (shorting for dimes) when AMZN pops. Stick with scalping. When you start giving fundamental reasons to STAY short (hanging onto your massive losing short account), AMZN goes up.
$199 Fire HD: HDMI port. $199 Nexus 7: none.
Fire HD: 16GB. Nexus 7: 8GB.
Don't get me wrong, the Nexus is a nice unit. However, no HDMI is a deal breaker.

Yes, GPS is quote important for a 7" portable device. Fire HD is 17mm wide than Nexus 7, which make it less portable. More difficult to put into the pocket.
