Amazon Kindle Fire HDX hands-on

It's two years since the first Kindle Fire tablets, and Amazon hasn't been sitting still: the new Kindle Fire HDX line-up is evidence of that. Still aggressively targeting cost-conscious users with a near-cost sticker price Jeff Bezos & Co. hope to offset with music, ebook, movie, and other purchases, the Kindle Fire HDX take on the Nexus 7 and iPad mini direct, with better specifications than ever before plus a video technical support system, Amazon Mayday, which could make Christmas morning the easiest its ever been.

This weekend it would appear that we're so very close to the launch of the next iPhone that we're being treated to not only up-close photos of the devices themselves, but a possible reveal date as well.

Nexus 7 2 and the details you want for a reboot

If there's one tablet out there that's taken the Android world by storm over the very short few years said devices have existed, it's been the ASUS-made Google Nexus 7. What we saw when the machine was first revealed was more of a solid package delivery than it was a market-topping hero product, and here a year and some months later the machine continues to be a hot toping amongst Android enthusiasts. Here in the summer of 2013, chatter begins to surround the next-generation Nexus tablet, the reboot of the Nexus 7: what'll we see next?

Plastic iPhones in neon tones: is this really Apple’s next generation?
