Amazon Prime instant video adds Android tablet support

Back in September Amazon finally gave Android users a way to access Amazon Prime Video content, after long holding out and keeping the functionality exclusive to Kindle Fire tablets, the Fire Phone, and various media streamers and smart TVs. Of course, they sure didn’t make things easy.

To play content, you needed to have the Amazon app, which would let you select video content. However, you also needed the Prime Instant Video app to actually play it back, which was available only through the Amazon AppStore. What’s worse than requiring you to install three different Amazon apps in order to simply watch your Prime Instant Video content? Amazon left tablets out of the [...]

The big clear-out: Best Buy will sell the old Kindle Fire HD for $99 on Black Friday

The retailer has previously leaked details of its Black Friday deals by showing its multi-page ad online, but it appears that it has different ideas for 2013.

A local Best Buy employee showed off some of this year’s deals, including the $99 Kindle Fire HD 7-inch tablet, to the Little Rock, Arkansas TV station.

The report mentioned that the slate usually retails for $199.99, which presumably means that the offer is for the 16GB edition (the 8GB model comes in at $139 ordinarily).

The Kindle Fire HD was essentially replaced by a newer and cheaper version (it now starts from $139) when Amazon announced the new 7-inch and 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDX tablets in [...]

Target may have the best iPad trade-in / trade-up deal of all

For example, trading in an original first gen iPad to Gazelle would get you just $80 if the iPad was in flawless condition, but that would be cash you could spend anywhere. Amazon says that you could only get up to $120 in Amazon Store credit for an iPad with the same specifications. 

There are a couple of key requirements connected to Target's deal. You have to take the iPad to one its in-store mobility kiosks to be appraised. To be eligible for the trade-in, the iPad must power on and the screen must be free of scratches. 

You can spend the $200 Target gift card on a new iPad or, if you prefer, other Target [...]

Microsoft’s new Surface 2 tablet is a big leap forward vs Surface RT, but is it enough?

“Microsoft’s Surface 2 turns the entire contents of my backpack into one device. It’s mostly a tablet, a light and slim device that’s great for reading, watching movies, or surfing the web,” writes David Pierce for The Verge.

“But when it’s business time, the Surface 2 steps up. With a keyboard attachment, a full version of Office, and everything else Windows 8.1 offers, it’s equally suited to watching Scandal and taking over the world.”

 “Arriving roughly a year after Microsoft’s first major foray into the consumer tablet market, the Surface 2 delivers on most of its promises,” [...]

3 issues I know I’ll have with the new iPad 5

Nowadays, though, not everyone is so quick to drink the Apple Kool-Aid. Sure, Apple’s products continue to sell well, but there seems to be a growing contingent that’s willing to acknowledge that there are other companies in the mobile market, like Samsung and Amazon, that can deliver high-quality products. What’s more, the ever-increasing Android love has prompted some to question why Apple isn’t doing all that it can to appeal to customers.

For those who have followed Apple over the years, the idea that Apple would not include all of the features consumers desire or fail to respond to demand for certain products isn’t anything new. Apple has, [...]
