Android 4.3: CyanogenMod 10.1 released for Nook Tablet and Kindle Fire - Tablet Community

Also for the Amazon Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet, the first Android 4.3 is now available in the form of a custom ROM.


Many users of smartphones and tablets already had to let some of the manufacturers in terms of upgrade policy like – for some reason the Android software namely update to update hardware-hungry, at least if you believe the information provided by the manufacturer . For that is often the advanced reason why older devices, an update will be denied, but with the release of Android 4.3 Kindle for the Fire and the first Nook Tablet prove the developers of CyanogenMod once again that this is not a very good argument.

Strictly speaking, the requirement should be reduced to the more hardware resources with other updates and actually works as Jelly Bean still much more efficient than Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The stuttering and delays that come up in jelly-bean-ROMs are rather due to lack of support from the manufacturer, because the development of custom ROMs without the corresponding source code, and new driver is very difficult.

The Nook Tablet and the Amazon Kindle Fire have a lot in common – both devices were originally ships with a customized version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and have a 7-inch IPS display with 1024 × 600 pixels. The status of the custom ROM is indeed only “nightly” and not “stable”, according to work experience in the nightlies but already all the basic functions.

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.

    Media Markt: Sony Reader PRS-T2 for 40 euros, 99 euros for Kindle Paperwhite -

    15 August 2013 – From John Main

    sony reader prs-t2 mediamarkt Media Market gives his camp empty and has put together two eBook reader offers which can be more than excellent. It will not be the last opportunity to dust off the current generation of readers.

    that the Sony Reader PRS-T3 is at the door, is no longer a secret – the device will probably be presented at the IFA in early September and mid-October, then comes on the market, so it handles Sony for years. Also the successor of the highly popular Kindle Paperwhite will be well, in October, in November at the latest.

    Upload your own eBooks in the Cloud: Kindle, and Google Tolino in comparison -

    upload your own ebooks to the cloud: Kindle, and Google Tolino compared

    reading on different devices only makes really grateful if you can read eBooks in the place where you last left off. When buying a new eBook reader or tablet you also want to move quickly and easily once purchased eBooks on the new device. This is made possible by the use of the cloud – but how exactly do you get his files there and what the various stores to offer actually


    Google Play

    http://www Store

    Any user with Google account can use the cloud, there is no need to register separately. By clicking on “Upload Files” under “Books> My Books> Uploaded” Google Play opens a dialog box in which you can store their documents in the cloud. This allows the files from a folder of the computer (but not export from there) to add drag and drop, or import an interface to Google Drive. So far, the upload works only via the web browser, not the apps of the Play stores – but the books can be read as normal with all applications. Here also the last position, bookmarks and notes are synchronized. Useful in this context is the import function of Project Gutenberg to Google Drive – as it has been integrated with a few clicks his classics library in the cloud Google Play


    Kindle Cloud

    Kindle App for the iPad - sync from the cloud

    Kindle App for the iPad – sync from the cloud

    Kindle cloud should not be confused with the Amazon Cloud. The latter provides any Amazon customers online storage for all file formats, such as, for example, with Dropbox. The Kindle Cloud, however, is primarily responsible for the synchronization of bookmarks, notes, and page positions in the purchased Amazon books. If you want this service for its own documents (eg books from Project Gutenberg) use, so there is this 5 GB of storage and the ability to send its data via e-mail to the cloud. This provides users with a Kindle, Kindle Keyboard (software version 3.3) or a device with a Kindle app (iOS, Android) is available – the Kindle Cloud Reader and Desktop versions are not served. When registering you will receive a personal e-mail address to which you send documents via its attachments (several also zipped). The transfer process will take a few minutes for smaller documents. However, caution in use of the Service in Kindle in the mobile Internet, this will incur a fee.

    The file formats are

    Supports doc, docx, html, htm, rtf, jpeg, jpg, mobi, azw, gif, png, bmp and pdf. Up on the pdf they are automatically converted to the Kindle format – Set the contents of the PDF appear dynamically, so be changing the font size, annotations and synchronization possible, so you can specify in the e-mail subject line “convert”. In complex layouteten pdfs but this function can lead to less than satisfactory results. There is no automatic conversion remains for epub, here the path continues through tools such as Calibre must be selected.


    German competitor of the big chain bookstores (Thalia, Hugendubel, worldview, Bertelsmann Club) provides users with powerful 25 GB for its own and purchased content. To the cloud can not be accessed by Tolino, but also tablets and smartphones with apps of participating providers. The last reading position is synchronized via the cloud. New acquisitions are not automatically synchronized, so you just need to download a erstandenes eBook on any device manually. One annoyance is also the reading of the apps Tolino providers who Co. are still far from the maturity of Kindle, and Kobo.

    also not very mature are the ways to upload previously purchased eBooks in the cloud and manage their files there. If you delete an eBook from his library, so it disappears at the same time from the cloud – local removal only works on the “free memory” in the settings menu. The upload can only be accomplished with the device itself, absent a program for your desktop, only Thalia, with its Cloud Reader a possible alternative to ePubs. Basically, leave books in the epub format (with Adobe DRM) and then download pdf and txt documents from PC via USB to the device and in the cloud.

    Kobo, Pocketbook

    cloud from Kobo offers the user out of space for your own files. Only books purchased are stored in the unbounded large data cloud and synced to all devices and Kobo apps. PocketBook currently sees absolutely no cross-device synchronization on.

    Conclusion: Google comfortably, Tolino immature

    anyway cloud-based Google Play the use of cloud sizes are very comfortable: DRM-free eBooks can be uploaded from your own computer without problems. If you already have an account with Google, in contrast to Amazon and no further registration process is necessary.

    To use the cloud and related benefits such as synchronization & Co for their own books at the Kindle, the e-mail procedure, especially for newcomers seems to little more complicated. In the test, but it worked smoothly.

    cloud of Tolinos is in scope certainly one of the biggest advantages of the device, but still hooked in many places. My eBooks should simply be transferred at least in theory on the device and can be uploaded to the cloud. However, there seems to be cases in which found themselves not all books in the cloud. Customer-friendly, it would also, if you could befüttern the cloud directly from your PC or from the app.
