Apple iPad for Sale on Amazon

Written on October 05, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

It must be an irony to see Apple iPad available in Amazon. After being noted as the "iPad Killer", can we say that there might be a change of mind for Amazon?

After its debut at Target stores last weekend, the Apple iPad is now also available on Amazon’s online store. The first and only online retailer to carry the tablet besides Apple itself.

Very odd as it may seem for Amazon to carry the device when in fact they were tagged before as the “iPad Killer”. Especially after the recent TV commercial they created. And seriously, not only did they sell the device but also created a Kindle app for iPad.

Just so you would know, the expansion of the Amazon’s e-book business is quite impressive. They also sell platforms for Mac, PC, iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and most recently, the web.

Amazon is carrying all six models of the device: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models with Wi-FI but not 3G capable, as well as Wi-Fi and 3G-enabled 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models.

The Kindle for Android Upgrade is Now Here

Written on September 24, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

With voice search, annotations and other significant add ons, who would say that Kindle is not the e-reader of the millennium?

Amazon released today an upgrade for its Kindle for Android app. And it’s FREE! Giving Android users a numerous convenient features that were available on Kindle services. With the ability to perform full-text searches of e-books by type and voice, browse Wikipedia and a lot more. Readers can also put notes and highlights to the texts, automatically syncing their e-readers and Kindle apps on other mobile devices.

Although this is just an upgrade to the original version, it still lacks some functionality on apps for Apple products. Such as the embedded audio and video clips. It does not allow you to change fonts, navigate by page number etc.

Even if there are a few flaws, we still think it’s brilliant. Let us know your views.
