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

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.

Police Alerts NOT new on Google Now

So you'd like to keep an eye on your local police department's doings, yes? Lucky you, there's a new Police Alerts segment being added to Google Now as we speak. This isn't brand new, on the other hand - it's all part of Google's team-up with Nixle earlier this year. If you don't see anything on your Google Now app now, you might also just be lucky - this isn't just a way to see what your local cops are up to, but a way for your local cops to inform you of emergencies.

iPad Air 2 teardown confirms Apple did not defy laws of physics

iPad Air 2 teardown confirms Apple did not defy laws of physics

Wondering what mysteries are inside the iPad Air 2? Apple didn't leave itself much room for surprises in its new flagship tablet, with the 6.1 mm slate not only the company's thinnest, but also its most powerful. As we found in our review of the iPad Air 2, components like the 1.49GHz tri-core Apple A8X processor and the newly fully-laminated display certainly keep iOS 8.1 moving along swiftly, but the team over at iFixit are more intrigued about how they all fit together physically.

Inbox for Gmail hands-on: email’s next generation

Google suggests with Inbox that they’re creating a new generation of email. It’s not meant to replace Gmail - yet - but it is made to turn your everyday un-modified email experience into a far more simple one. Instead of the face-melting masses of spam you’re used to, Inbox transforms your email experience into a manageable one. It includes your email and your notifications, and it's meant to revert you back to a time when email was reasonably manageable. And it looks nice, too.

iOS 8.1 Jailbreak released for iPhone, iPad

This entirely un-authorized look at iOS 8.1 comes from the folks at Team Pangu.

And you CAN get English instructions if you don't read Chinese.

Now Barnes & Noble has a 10.1-inch Samsung Nook tablet

Samsung's latest Nook-branded iteration on its Android tablet line-up has been announced, with Barnes & Noble putting the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 up for sale in-store.

Existing Samsung Nook tablet owners shouldn't worry, however, as Samsung has something for them, too.

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

Apple is bullish on tablets and, for all it may be the slimmest and lightest of its breed, the iPad Air 2 is undeniably its new heavyweight champion. Dropping weight and bulk while simultaneously gaining power, the iPad Air 2 also dips into the best-selling iPhone 6's pockets for features like Touch ID and Apple Pay. Question is, though, has the new Air done enough to make itself a must-have upgrade?

iPad mini 3 Review – Refinement not Revolution

iPad mini 3 Review – Refinement not Revolution

For many tablet fans, Apple's second-generation iPad mini hit the sweet spot. Keeping the bag- and hand-friendly design of the original iPad mini, but adding a Retina display, it replaced standalone ereaders and held the phablet fort until the iPhone 6 Plus arrived. Technology can't stand still, though, and so 2014 brings the iPad mini 3. With the changes far more moderate than the iPad Air 2, though, does the iPad mini 3's previous charm remain as strong? Read on for our full review.

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.
