Amazon’s Fire TV media streaming box is now on sale in the UK. The little hub gives you access to Amazon’s own Prime Instant Video and music services, as well as a host of other familiar streaming services. All for just a small cost of £79.

Customers will have access to Flixster, Netflix, Plex, Spotify, and Youtube media streaming platforms. A small selection of local services have been thrown in too, including BBC’s iPlayer, Demand 5, and Sky News. That’s plenty of video to watch.

The Fire TV box comes bundled with a voice enabled remote control, which can be used to search for content through speech as well as pause and rewind your videos. There’s also an optional game controller available for purchase if you’re planning on playing a few games in your living room, just like the recently announced Google Nexus Player.

The quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB of RAM will keep the box feeling responsive and it also comes with 8GB of internal memory should you want to store some of your own offline content.

You can purchase your Fire TV directly from Amazon at the link below. Who’s grabbing one?

Amazon accepting pre-orders for HTC accessories for Nexus 9

Posted by wicked October - 22 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

If you’re already dreaming of awesome accessories for your future Nexus 9 tablet, you’ll have to wait a little while longer. The Keyboard Folio and Magic Cover from HTC created for the new tablet has been shown on the Google Play website but is not available for pre-order yet. But now thanks to Amazon, you’ll be able to closely anticipate having these accessories as they are accepting pre-orders already, with shipping expected early next month.

The Keyboard Folio serves as a case, a two-angle stand and an external keyboard as well for the Nexus 9. It attaches to the back of the tablet through a magnet and can be used as a keyboard through Bluetooth connectivity, with reportedly up to 5 months of battery life. But if you don’t feel like you don’t need a physical keyboard to use with the tablet but you still want to protect a device as precious as your upcoming Nexus 9, then you can settle with the Magic Cover, also from HTC.

It is also a magnetic cover that can protect either the front or the back of the tablet, depending on how you’re using it or storing it at the moment. It has a hinge cover so it can remain attached even without any fixed attachment or mechanical part. It is origami-inspired in terms of design and can be used as a stand as well with two different angles to use. Aside from the fact that it wakes the tablet up when flipped open, it can also open your camera when you open the flap covering it. It is available in four colors – Black, Lime stone, Coral Amethyst and Mint Indigo.

The Magic Cover is priced at $39.99 while the Keyboard Folio is of course, a lot more expensive at $129.99. It is the same price both in the Google Play Store and in Amazon, but there is no news yet as to when it will be available for pre-order. Ordered accessories are expected to ship out by November 3, just in time for when you can purchase your new Nexus 9.

NBA 2K15 now on the Amazon App Store, Kindle Fire devices

Posted by wicked October - 17 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

2K Sports has made a name for itself being the king of the hill when it comes to NBA simulation games, with its NBA 2K series without competition now for a number of years. Its latest annual release is NBA 2K15 is now available as a premium mobile game available specifically on the Amazon App Store for Kindle Fire devices.

NBA 2K15 is hyping on new features for this year, but it always starts with better graphics and gameplay. Now it extends these new and better features to mobile gaming, specifically the more powerful devices from Amazon, under their Kindle Fire series of devices – specifically the Fire phone, the Fire HDX 8.9-inch, Kindle Fire HDX tablets, and also to Fire TV.

Specs-wise, the Fire Phone is right about there on processing power with its Snapdragon 800 quad core processor and 2GB of RAM. The Fire HDX 8.9 sports the newer Snapdragon 805 processor with a similar 2GB of RAM. It’s probably wise to say that NBA 2K15 will probably be ok gaming-wise for last year and this year’s flagship level and higher-end phones and tablets. Anything lower than a Snapdragon 800 might cause the game to lag.

Aside from the eye candy, NBA 2K15 boasts of a soundtrack made by international R&B and pop phenomenon Pharrell Williams. The game will be available via the Amazon App Store at a premium price of USD$7.99, or you can try this link here.

Pre-orders for the HTC Nexus 9 may not open at Google Play until tomorrow, but Amazon has it available already. For $399, you can have the 16GB version, or for $80 more you can double that to 32GB. The device is available with Prime shipping and says it will be released by November 3.

I hate to say this, but you may get your Nexus 9 faster through Amazon than Google Play, with free or super cheap Prime shipping.

Unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 4 available through Amazon

Posted by wicked October - 11 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

This fall, Samsung will be launching one of the most anticipated devices of the year. The Galaxy Note 4 will have a spot on each of the nation’s four major carriers. However, some consumers want an unlocked device. For those people, we have good news. Amazon is carrying the Galaxy Note 4 unlocked in black ($859), white ($869), and gold ($904). The only catch here is that there is no warranty included since the devices are unlocked.

These are all international models, so prospective buyers on Verizon or Sprint networks are unable to use this unlocked Galaxy Note 4.

Galaxy Note 4 now on sale on Amazon, starting from $850 unlocked

Posted by wicked October - 10 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

samsung galaxy note 4 first impressions (12 of 20)

If you can’t wait to get your grubby paws on the shiny new Note 4, the device is currently in stock on Amazon.

There are a few caveats. The Note 4 is currently only available through resellers, so you will pay a bit more for the privilege of owning Samsung’s new beast ahead of everyone else. Second, there is no warranty, so you are proceeding at your own risk. Third, the model listed is GSM-only, so don’t buy it if you need to use it on Sprint or Verizon.

With these issues out of the way, the Note 4 is available from several retailers, some of which offer international shipping. This is the unlocked 32GB international model of the Note 4 (SM-N910).

Here are some of the lowest priced offers, for the black, white, and gold models (in stock, except the gold model, which ships in 6 to 10 days):

If paying close to $900 for a smartphone is too much for you, operators in the US and Europe will begin carrying the Galaxy Note 4 starting next week, for $200-$299 on a two-year contract. If you still need convincing, our recent Note 4 review may provide just the nudge you need.

Amazon will offer a new Washington Post application for Kindle tablets and other devices

Posted by wicked October - 7 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

amazon_logo_kindle_hdAbout a year ago, Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos purchased the Washington Post, a national newspaper. Since that purchase, we haven’t seen any indication of Bezos crossing his newly owned newspaper publication and Amazon, but it looks like that might be changing in the near future.

Several employees of the Washington Post have been working on a new application for digital distribution or curated content, and it looks like the app is going to make its debut on Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets later this year. The app will offer photos and news stories to readers in a tablet-friendly format, probably similar to something like Flipboard. It sounds like Amazon is looking at making this exclusively a tablet app, though, so don’t expect a version for the Fire Phone or anything else when it first launches.

The app is expected to be free at first, but when Amazon inevitably rolls it out to other Android and iOS tablets, it’s likely to carry a subscription fee. I’d say there’s a pretty good chance we could see it rolled up into Amazon Prime, too.

Amazon has been hard at work trying to make an all-inclusive ecosystem with its devices and services. They offer their own app store, video and music streaming services, and even grocery delivery in certain parts of the country, so adding a newspaper subscription on top of that isn’t too far out there for the company. With tons of free options for news and information, though, Amazon has a tough road towards making a newspaper relevant against digital competitors.

HP 10 Plus tablet shows up at Amazon, no official announcement

Posted by wicked October - 4 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

It was a while back when we wrote about a bunch of tablets that HP was planning to launch – one of those tablets has dropped at the Amazon website with little in the way of a formal announcement. Looks like HP is trying to sneak the HP 10 Plus by us, although we don’t really know what good that will achieve.

The HP 10 Plus is one of the more robust tablets in terms of specs from that group we initially announced. The tablet features an Allwinner A31 ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor turning at 1Ghz, not really a solid choice for a branded tablet. At least it is supported by 2GB or RAM. The screen is a 10.1-inch Full HD display, and there’s a 5MP/2MP camera combo for those who can’t help taking pictures even with their tablets.

The curious spec is that the tablet only runs WiFi 802.11n, where most tablets, even the cheap ones will be a/b/g/n/ac. It’s not immediately clear why this is, but it can be that HP tried to cut some costs with this tablet. At least, the tablet runs Android 4.4.2 Kitkat – not the latest, but certainly better than the lower versions.

hp10plus_2

hp10plus_4

The tablet is priced at USD$279.00 at Amazon, a drop from the rumored USD$320 pricing that was initially bandied about. It’s not really a bad tablet, but the 1Ghz core speed on your quad-core processor is bound to affect the smoothness of processes and apps you run on the tablet. Check out the tablet at Amazon here.
