Amazon app kicked from Google Play

The app you may have used for the past several years to access Amazon (outside of your web browser) has been axed from Google Play's app store. As was found earlier this year, Amazon updated their app to include app and game purchases and downloads - effectively making their app an app store within an app store. Google did not like that, and since have brought up a bit of a rule tweak on what should have otherwise banned the sales of apps within apps listed on Google Play.

Fire HD 6 Kids Edition Review: Christmas Morning

It's Christmas morning. Your child woke you up with an ear-piercing scream of excitement - Santa has come. Once your child sees the present you've wrapped in special paper - next to the Santa gifts, of course - they snatch it up. They realize it might just be socks. They open it.

Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 review: a pretty one-way path

With the mid-size tablet genre being redefined, Amazon has stepped in with their latest, an 8.9-inch HDX version of the Fire tablet.

Depending on what you want from your tablet, though, the Fire HDX 8.9 might be right for you. To see just how much has improved, and whether or not you should give it a hard look, we took it for a test run.

Kindle Fire HDX 7 lands on AT&T to help Fire Phone sales

You may have heard that Amazon is entering a trying financial period, and that its first ever smartphone isn't helping its cause. Some are pinning the Fire Phone's failure on its exclusive availability to AT&T but now the carrier seems to be trying to make up for lost time, sales, and pride. It is announcing the arrival of the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX, the 7-inch kind, and although you can buy it on its own, AT&T will give you a slightly sweeter deal if you purchase it with the Fire Phone.

Kindle Voyage starts shipping (but prepare for a wait)

Kindle Voyage starts shipping (but prepare for a wait)

In the market for a new ereader? Amazon's hoping you'll opt for a Kindle Voyage, with the 300dpi digital book we reviewed yesterday beginning to ship to pre-order customers, alongside its new tablet siblings, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 and the Fire HD Kids Edition. Voyage is, as we ourselves found, certainly Amazon's best E Ink Kindle to-date, but that technology also comes with a hefty price tag attached.

Nexus 9 seen in Vietnam in the flesh, Amazon starts pre-orders

The excitement around Google and HTC's newest Nexus 9 tablet is so great that some people just can't keep their hands off it, or keep those from showing up on the Internet. The new Nexus tablet isn't due out in a few weeks, but someone in Vietnam already got their hands on not one but two Nexus 9, in black and white colors, just to tease everyone else with a substantial number of photos. In the meantime, though, Amazon has already started the ball rolling.
