Amazon planning 8.9-inch Kindle Fire next say suppliers

The next Kindle Fire ereader tablet in Amazon's line-up is likely to use an 8.9-inch touchscreen display rather than a 10.1-inch panel as originally expected, sources in the supply chain have revealed. While we've heard talk of a pair of tablets - one small, the 7-inch Kindle Fire shipping in little over a week's time, and one large, potentially arriving toward the end of the year - since the beginning of the Amazon rumors, DigiTimes's sources say the retailer has switched to a smaller screen and pushed a 10.1-inch version further back down the roadmap.

Amazon profit dip predicted over Kindle Fire loss-leading

Amazon's loss-leader strategy with the Kindle Fire ereader tablet, as well as a growing US sales tax bill, could lead to significantly reduced income this quarter analysts have predicted. The retailer is expected to announce earnings figures today, but already there are concerns that Amazon's net income may be just half of Q3 2010, according to an estimate average crunched by Businessweek.

B&N borrows Amazon’s playbook for Galaxy Tab 4 Nook teaser

B&N borrows Amazon’s playbook for Galaxy Tab 4 Nook teaser

Barnes & Noble wants you to know that the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet is enough to get existing Nook owners excited; whether that's enough to turn the company's struggling ebook fortunes around remains to be seen. Samsung outed the new slate - which it designed itself, but which bears B&N's Nook branding - back in June, and now the bookseller is trying to build the prelaunch hype, taking a page out of Amazon's book in the process.

Look out Square, Amazon Local Register is gunning for you

Look out Square, Amazon Local Register is gunning for you

Amazon has launched its Local Register card reader for retailers, taking on Square in the mobile payments space with what the online behemoth claims are segment-besting rates. Amazon's dinky dongle plugs into the headphone jack of an iPhone, iPad, or Android tablet - including, unsurprisingly, the company's own Kindle Fire HD and HDX - and accepts swiped credit and debit cards, though you'll have to pay upfront for the reader itself.
