Is Amazon set to drop Kindle Fire price to $149?

by Chris Stewart on
tagged , , ,


Could it be that Amazon’s ultra-cheap Android tablet is about to get even cheaper? With strong rumours that Amazon is planning to launch a refreshed 7″ Kindle Fire as well as brand new 8.9″ and 10.1″ models, it would make sense that the current model will see a reduction for a final push before it becomes yesterday’s news. Recent reports had already suggested that the once fast-selling tablet has seen a sharp decline in sales with rival budget models such as B&N’s Nook overtaking it in recent weeks. With the Google I/O around the corner where there’s a high expectation we’ll see Asus launch an aggressively priced Nexus tablet it would appear that Amazon’s window for additional Kindle Fire sales is closing fast.

The question is, will a $50 drop to $150 be enough to convince you to jump on-board the Kindle Fire bandwagon at this late stage? Personally I’ll be waiting to see what Amazon has in store for us and what Google has up it’s sleeve before considering a new tablet purchase. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Amazon and Target offer the Samsung Galaxy S III for $149.99

by Adam Johnson on
tagged , , ,

Target and Amazon Wireless have been quick to push out this deal to existing AT&T customers. I don’t doubt if you haven’t upgraded to a new Android device recently there’s a pretty good reason. That reason is most likely you’re waiting on the Samsung Galaxy S III. And if you frugal (read: cheap) like me you should jump on this deal. Both Amazon and Target are now offering the SGS3 for $149.99 as an upgrade with a new contract. This deal is a bit different than usual. The best discount is being offered to those wanting to upgrade, and that’ll make the AT&T customers happy I’m sure. If you’re considering leaving your current carrier and signing with AT&T you’ll have to pay a whole $40 more at $189.99 to get your hands on this latest and greatest Samsung handset.

Choices are great aren’t they? So if you’re in the market for a Samsung Galaxy S III check out the sources for your next upgrade to the latest Samsung Android phone on the market.

[Update] Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Pre-Orders Go Live On Amazon, then Pulled

by Macky Evangelista on
tagged , , , , , ,

 

Update: Looks like Amazon jumped the gun on this one and posted the pre-order page before Samsung was ready. We’re just going to have to wait this one out a little bit longer. We will keep you up to date as soon as we hear anything more.

Ever since Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 10.1, I’ve been very excited about it and thought that it might actually be the first tablet I’d buy. With the Galaxy Note being so popular and successful, I have no doubts that the Note 10.1 will be just as great especially with the S-pen functionality. Well, if you’d like to be one of the first consumers to get your hands on it then Amazon has you covered…. Kind of. The Note 10.1 was up for pre-orders on Amazon and said shipping would be about 3-5 weeks, but due to a high volume of pre-orders the page has been temporarily taken down until Amazon replenishes their inventory. I’ll post the link via the source so just keep your eye on it from time to time. Hopefully Amazon put it back on shortly.

If you’re not familiar with the Note 10.1, it will feature Androids latest firmware, Ice Cream Sandwich, and will feature Samsung’s innovative S-pen technology. It will be a WiFi-only 10.1″ tablet with 32GB of on-board storage. The tablet will don the 1.4 quad-core Exynos processor, similar to the one inside the international Galaxy SIII. This is definitely the tablet to keep an eye on if you’re a Samsung fan.

Amazon Appstore could finally open in Europe this Summer

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged ,

The Amazon Appstore has been around for a little over a year now, but it’s only available to U.S. residents. I’m not sure why they didn’t release it all over the world, but it looks like Europe may be the first area outside the U.S. to get a taste of it. All Things D is reporting that Amazon will announce next week that they are accepting submissions from developers soon.

The timing of this is interesting since sales of the Kindle Fire are starting to show declines. Amazon sold 4.8 million units in the 4th quarter 2011, but only 750,000 in the 1st quarter of this year. This was obviously due to Holiday sales, but that’s a pretty big drop. This might have been part of the plan all along, but it certainly can’t hurt Amazon to start selling Kindle Fire’s in more areas. Not to mention the Google Nexus tablet (and possibly an iPad Mini) is looming.

Excited for the Samsung Galaxy S III, but don’t want to wait additional months before it arrives in the stores on American shores? Well you may want to visit Amazon ASAP. It has officially listed the 16GB pebble blue and white versions of the device as available for pre-order. That means if you want to be the cool kid on the block, you’ll have the opportunity to be among the first to own the quad-core-powered, unlocked HSPA+ beast once it’s shipped on June 1st.

Naturally you will have to pay a premium price in order to be the first to own this premium device. Interested parties will have to pay a measley $799.99 in order to own this puppy, so be prepared to spend a pretty penny. Or of course you can you know… wait for your carrier of choice to launch their version of the device.

Select Devices Get Beta Version Of “Test Drive” With New Amazon Appstore Update

by Joe Sirianni on
tagged , , ,

The Amazon Appstore has recently pushed out an update bringing it to version 2.6.53.  In addition to bug fixes, Amazon has now added their popular Test Drive capabilities to the little screen. For quite some time now you’ve been able to test drive an app on your PC in an emulator to see how it runs, looks and feels.  Well, Amazon is now bringing it to a select few devices.  Obviously, and for good reason, Amazon isn’t telling anyone how they’re pulling this one off and speculation is that it’s running off of their servers somewhere and not actually on your handset.  We’re not sure what the list of supported devices are just yet, but if you’ve happened to stumble upon it and it works, then please do sound off in the comments as to what device you’re using.

From the change log:

- Enabled the Test Drive feature.  Test Drive is a beta feature that lets you instantly try apps before buying them.  Test Drive is initially available on select Android phones and for a limited selection of apps. 

As of now, I’ve yet to see a Test Drive feature on my T-Mobile Galaxy S II.
