Amazon Mayday delivers Bezos’ promise, avoids Kindle Fire meltdown

Amazon's Mayday system for the Kindle Fire HDX, putting a live customer services assistant on the screen of the Android-based tablet, saw the retailer beat its self-imposed time-to-answer target, though highlights lingering questions as to how many new owners needed hand-holding to understand the media-centric slate. Mayday, launched alongside the 7- and 8.9-inch Fire HDX models earlier this year, connects to remote tech support who can either guide users through setting up or troubleshooting their tablets, or take control and do the hard work themselves.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite e-reader to see 3rd generation by Q2 2014

If you thought the second Paperwhite came out fast, don't blink.

This week the teams responsible for pushing as many Kindles as possible this holiday season have hit upon a rather lucrative business: custom-made covers. What Amazon intends on doing here is offering up a service that would normally be done by a variety of 3rd-party accessory makers, doing the work themselves to make the whole business feel much more like a single package.

Read on for the SlashGear review.

Kazam smartphones ushered in by former HTC heads

This week two former HTC executives have launched a smartphone brand called Kazam, complete with a whopping 5 models right out the gate. These smartphones are not aiming to present the sharpest displays, nor the most powerful processors - or the best cameras, for that matter. Instead they aim at a number of pressure points in the Android smartphone universe: replaceable batteries, microSD card slots, dual-SIM card ports, and top-notch tech support.

Amazon stokes FAA device ruling fire with Kindle blow-out

Amazon has decidedly announced their full support of the new FAA ruling for in-flight device use with not only a suggestion that they've always done so, but that they're willing to let their device prices prove it. Amazon Kindle prices have been kicked down a notch for a single day by the company suggesting they're excited their users will be able to read throughout the flight, not just once they've reached 10,000 feet.
