In an open letter last turned over 1,000 authors to the American company and threw Amazon among other things, accounts of individual publishers deliver slowed or not to keep in stock in order to force higher discounts from the publishers

Amazon should allow in October with E-book Kindle flatrate unlimited reading fun for a small monthly Fixbeitrag also in Germany, the iOS app Readfy for iPhone and iPad allows you to completely free reading ebooks thanks to advertising and commercials.

Amazon Kindle Unlimited: THE Ebook Flat

Amazon will launch on 8 October at the Frankfurt Book Fair, the e-book Kindle Flatrate Unlimited. For a fixed monthly price to the Kindle reader is unlimited access to books in Kindle Ebooks Library. However, this seems to be not quite as easy to implement in Germany: while smaller publishers recognize the chance and see eBook flat rates as a “model of the future” practice industry giants reticence. This will be mainly due to the loud WiWo that the relationship between Amazon and example, the large publishing house Bonnier by the demands of higher discounts from Amazon are a bit troubled. Especially in combination with the new Kindle Voyage likely this offer still happy some bookworms.

flat rate offers for music streaming such as Spotify and streaming TV, TV series and films such as Netflix, Watch Ever, max cathedrals and Amazon Instant Video have expanded to include established in the market. In our opinion a counterpart for Books and Ebooks is therefore a sensible, even overdue service. Publishing houses that should balk against the introduction of such offer, lead the problems of the music and film industry in mind. Here a reasonable and profitable for all parties, pioneering business model needs to be found.

Certainly makes reading a “real, printed book” still a lot of fun, but just the high-resolution display and the new format of an iPhone 6 Plus, thanks to such offers is today already available at low cost, already is perfect for reading on the bus, train, vacation, bed or balcony.

How do you feel about a paid ebook Flat as Kindle Unlimited Amazon or free flat thanks to advertising as Readfy?

There are only two reasons to buy an Amazon Tablet:. ‘ / p>

  1. You like Amazon
  2. You know how to rootet a Fire tablet and a custom ROM install

The rooting is usually the smaller problem, but good custom ROMs to find does. Amazon does everything for obvious reasons, so that users remain as the operating system at Fire OS. Even if the 99 euro appear for the smallest model to be favorable, one should not forget that at this price on the lock screen advertising appears and practically generates the complete pre-installed app offering money for Amazon, the Fire HDX also with ads 379 € demand, is a joke. Who is looking for a real Android tablet for 99 euros with KitKat and without advertising, we can, for example, the Acer Iconia One 7 recommend (Review). Much more fun than with the Fire HDX you have, for example, with the LG G Pad 8.3. The kitchen has “only” a full-HD display, but it’s a real Android system and it costs on Amazon just 222 Euros
