Amazon slashes prices on the Kindle Fire HDX and Kindle Fire HD again

kindle-fire-hdx-89-tablet-four

This is certainly not the first time that Amazon has slashed prices on their Kindle Fire line, and we have no idea if it’s the last. If you’re looking to grab a Kindle Fire, than I would head over to Amazon today and grab one because it could be your last chance. For today only, they are slashing prices by 20% on the Kindle Fire HDX 7″ 16GB ($182.20 vs $229), Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ 16GB ($229 vs 269), Kindle Fire HD 7″ 16GB ($135.20 vs $169), and basic Kindle  ($56 vs $69).

Roughly 40% of iPads sold on Black Friday were to Android users

android-vs-apple-eyelk

Android users sure want to take a bite out of that Apple. According to more than 90,000 Black Friday receipts from Android and iOS users collected by InfoScout, about 40% of them were Android smartphone owners that bought an iPad. This means that about 36,000 Android users bought an iPad. This is an interesting figure because it shows that although Android is an excellent experience on a smartphone, those consumers aren’t feeling the same way about it on tablets. And with the launch of the new iPad Air, consumers are certainly going to be driven to buy something new with excellent specifications.

Google, on the other hand, has yet to announce their plans for a new Nexus 10 or even a Nexus 8. While some would say it is really up to OEMs to produce great tablets, I would argue that Google needs to shape the tablet experience into something fresh with their Nexus devices. The Nexus line is nowhere near as popular as Samsung’s Galaxy brand, but it certainly is evolving into something mainstream.

G Flex international launch event invites being sent out by LG

G Flex

Some might say that these new “curve” devices are more novelty-based than actually useful, but the technology is certainly appealing and will definitely have something to show us in the next few years.

But for now, we’re stuck with the LG G Flex and the Samsung Galaxy Round— LG is now sending out invites for their international launch event for the G Flex. The event will take place on December 3rd in Hong Kong. The device is rumored to be coming to the United States in early 2014 on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, and will be in France next month.

It’ll most likely be a pretty expensive device, as it’s going for about $940 in South Korea and features a self-healing back panel, a 6-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel shooter.
