  • .

  • battery: ASUS is the running time of 10 hours with general use of, 9 hours of video playback should beat this value, however,
  • .

  • RAM: The New Nexus 7 has also twice as much memory
  • .

    Kindle Fire HD. now even cheaper at Amazon

    Amazon reduced its own tablet PCs. The Kindle Fire HD with 16 GB of memory currently costs only 169 € – 199 € instead of as before. But the 32-gigabyte version, there are cheaper.

    7-inch tablet now even cheaper

    Amazon’s price reduction applies to all Kindle Fire HD models in the 7-inch form factor. The 16-gigabyte version, you now get for 30 euros less than previously. This makes the little brother without HD display, the Kindle Fire, with a price of 159 euros even less attractive. Amazon also reduces the analog version without “Special Offers” to 30 euros – 184 euros instead of 214 euros so. These offers are advertisements that are displayed on the lockscreen and updated when an active Internet connection. Nevertheless, as overlays but there felt that advertising is overall decent.

    If you need more than 16 GB of flash memory for data, media and apps, the shipping giant also offers a 32-gigabyte version. This was also reduced. Instead of 229 € you now pay 199 € -. Therefore also a price drop to 30 €

    Kindle Fire HD 8.9 not affected

    Kindle Fire HD. avarage good, but excellent value

    practicality, but no device

    In our tablet list of best Kindle Fire HD is something lost in the lower ranks and is only the 37th Place. The most important weakness is the enormous circumcised operating system. Although it is based on Android 4, but Amazon has changed massively in order to provide their services, such as books, music and video downloads as well as the shopping portal Amazon in the spotlight. Who knows the classic Android skin, is on the Kindle Fire HD hardly guess the mobile OS. Only deep in the settings, see the Android origin. This fact also ensures that Google has granted a license for the channel gates. Therefore, you must be content with Amazon’s app marketplace take. An advantage has this total change but especially for beginners: The interface is extremely easy to use. Everyone who comes to the website of Amazon Germany rightly, can also use the tablet.

    Maue equipment, average display

    Also off of the operating system, the Kindle Fire HD rarely completely convinced. The equipment falls out very mau. The built-in hardware is not up to date, also lacks an SD card slot for memory expansion and a 3G module for mobile internet without Wi-Fi. A camera has the Fire HD exclusively forward. This is ideal for video chats like Skype. Snapshots can also be due to the lack of rear camera, however, forget

    The display makes a good impression in the test. Positive fall on the high resolution, high brightness and an IPS panel technology used. Weaknesses are the low contrast values ??and strong levels in light. Are impressive for the battery life. Each about six hours while surfing the web and video shows are great compared to the price.

    Amazon Kindle charts flooded with cheap e-books

    20 E-Books for 2 euros for two weeks – with this announcement, Amazon has its clientele obviously ecstatic, a large part of the bargain has already taken hold in the bestseller list. Indie authors are less enthusiastic.

    20 titles from yesterday, Tuesday 29th to July are reduced, appeared all at Amazon Crossing, there are translations successful English-language literature. As a publisher, Amazon has here the full price of sovereignty – and exclusivity, the advertised e-books are only available from Amazon


    2 euros for professionally translated and proofread novels – which could be many readers do not say that again, the e-books at lightning speed climbed the Kindle charts. Currently, the first three places in the Amazon bestseller list are occupied by such a “two-euro-e-books,” eight of the titles are already in the top 20 – rising. Interestingly omitted deals on Amazon for all string prices will be displayed just the new price. FYI: The Overlooked Man (currently # 2) cost 3.99 euros before the action, an unexpected inheritance (currently # 3) 2,99 €


    “As in a 1-euro store”

    victims are publishers, but probably still very indie authors who compete on price with the Amazon Crossing e-books and were ousted by them from the front seats of the Kindle charts. In a writing group on Facebook anger at the displacement is large – but consensus is that Amazon has beaten the Indies here at their own game. So asks Michael Meisheit, with its eBook Out of this world, thanks to a 99-cent action recently even at the top of the Kindle charts, self-deprecating in the round, “Shall we make ‘ne petition: Self Publisher fight against publishing books under 5 ? € “and adds:” We see yet again today that Amazon can make all the plans and strategies naught with a finger swipe “


    Monika von Ramin aka Nika Lubitsch, with “The 7th Day “and” The 5th Bid “is also a bestselling author, the author holds the mirror before:” Why you actually excited about € 2 books from Amazon when your 99 cents makes it permanent actions with your own books. One feels already like in a 1-euro store. “General will discuss how long you can still drive sales and differentiate themselves from publishing titles with special offers.

    Tell your opinion. throws eroticism Kindle Charts -

    12 July 2013 – From John

    crossfire ebook An erotic novel as the No. 1 best-seller list – which has probably broke the camel’s back for Overnight, Amazon has kicked a number of the Kindle bestseller charts, they appear now only in its own ranking.

    opinion on compliance, the third part of Sylvia Days Crossfire series is divided: Some readers may find the book boring, others do not feel cheated because the actually applied as a trilogy story was drilled in the short term to five parts according to is completed the new book. The sales success that changed nothing: Immediately after launch last Saturday, the book jumped to No. 1 on the e-book bestseller list (screenshot from Wednesday)



    From there, the e-book disappeared last Thursday, which is, however, not to declining sales. Rather intervened manually and deprived “Crossfire” the sales rank. The e-book is now only to be found in the adult charts – along with several other titles, were removed in the same breath off the charts. Breathless – Secret pleasure was scratching at the time of Outlistings in the top 10, the third part of Shades-of-Grey-series (all parts flew out) as the current number 3 of the adult charts at number 30, was most recently the general ranking list

    Amazon Kindle charts are prominently advertised (they are included among other things on the Kindle home page) – the company here obviously cares about its image and its digital bookstore. The procedure is also not uncommon for many e-book stores Adult consider not in their charts. Who does not auslistet such often extremely strong-selling titles, works fast dingy for new customers – an example is Google Play, where currently three of the teaser on the homepage Top 5 E-Books erotic nature (with titles like “Hot days, horny nights”).


    Striking is a certain inconsistency on Amazon, at least at the present time. So find yourself on top positions in the charts continues Kindle e-books as captivating love (the name says it all). Also noted colleague Matthias Matting right way, that print charts are not cleaned (yet?) – Here Crossfire greets currently of course 2 of the general best-seller list, two Shades-of-Grey parts are located on the 4th and 5th place
