    We're typically picky when it comes to tablets. Unlike smartphones, which most people would rather not do without, tablets aren't a necessity for most. For the most part, they're still luxury items, and their hefty price tags often turn potential buyers away. Of course, there are a few exceptions to the rule, such as budget tablets. Oh, and the occasional killer deal. Black Friday is a great time to buy new tech. Millions of shoppers across the United States will line up with the masses late Thanksgiving evening or early Friday morning to stock up on holiday gifts, new, cheap goods for ...

    For months now, we've been looking forward to the launch of this year's lineup of Amazon Kindle Fire tablets, and what we've heard about their hardware makes it sound like quite the attractive pack. That would mean Snapdragon 800s in both new HD models, a 1080p display for the seven-incher, and an extremely high-res 2,560 x 1,600 panel on the 8.9-inch model. What we hadn't seen, though, were any images of the hardware itself. Today we seem to be getting our first glimpse, with a new gallery of Fire HD 2 pics revealing some significant design changes. Easily the most visible change, Amazon ...

    It's not particularly controversial to suggest that new versions of Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets are on their way, following last year's introduction of Fire HD models. Over the last several weeks, though, rumors about a third generation of Fire hardware have really picked up the pace, and leaks have been getting much more specific in their depictions of these new devices. Most recently, benchmark results added credence to some of those rumors, appearing to confirm details like a high-res 2560 x 1600 display on the new 8.9-inch model and Snapdragon 800s galore. As we wait to learn just ...

    Amazon announced its Kindle Fire HD lineup during the first week of September last year, following the first-gen Kindle Fire launch the September before. If history intends to repeat itself, we could be just weeks away from checking out an all-new refresh to the Kindle Fire family. We've heard a few rumors about just what kind of hardware we could be looking at for these tablets, and it all sounds like some pretty high-end gear. Today we get to look at some benchmark data that lines up nicely with those specs. Over on GFXBench, there's an unknown Amazon tablet with the designation KFAPWA. ...

The Samsung Exynos processor follows, as there are some benchmark realities to talk about. We end today's show talking about some leaks of the Amazon Kindle Fire line-up for 2013, even though we're not excited. ...

    We've got tablet refreshes on the mind, what with the new Nexus 7 just going official last week, but that's far from the only new version of an old tablet that we've been looking forward to. There are other new Nexus models to anticipate, as well as some new iPads, but what about the classic budget tablet, the Kindle Fire? Last year brought us the Fire HD lineup, and we've already heard some rumors about what further changes might be in store this time around. Today we get a lot more detail on just what we could expect. Earlier, we had little more than resolutions: supposedly, there would ...

    The first Kindle Fire tablet was a big deal when it landed, offering shoppers interested in tablets a chance to check one out from a respected name without breaking the bank in the process. Amazon stepped things up last year with the Kindle Fire HD and new size options, but by then it had the stiff competition of the Nexus 7 to deal with. Will Amazon be able to capture our attention once again with its next tablet offerings? Some new rumors attempt to paint the picture of what Amazon could be planning for the third generation of the Kindle Fire. One of the biggest changes could be to ...

    What's the ideal price for a budget Android tablet from a respectable manufacturer? Lately, all the players have been hovering around the $200 mark, but can we do even better than that? Amazon may be trying to undercut its competition by making a model available for substantially less, according to rumors suggesting the company intends to release a new version of the seven-inch Kindle Fire HD for just under $100 later this year. How could Amazon produce the tablet so cheaply? That's good question, because what little we've heard about its hardware so far suggests that it will be remarkably ...

    In-app purchases are a huge source of income for app developers, allowing them to remove some of the initial hesitance users might have in dropping a few bucks on an app, and instead letting them make their money bit-by-bit, as users pay a little here and there to unlock new features or add functionality. Today Amazon announced a new way for Kindle Fire users to make such purchases, with plans for the launch of its Amazon Coins virtual currency. The Coins will arrive this May, but we're left asking ourselves, what's the point of all this? Amazon promotes these Coins as an easy way to both ...

    With all the tablet news that's happened since, what with the release of the 32GB and 3G Nexus 7, the Nexus 10, and Apple's iPad mini, it can be easy to forget that early September brought us news of Amazon's new Kindle Fire HD models. While the seven-incher's been around since shortly thereafter, we've been waiting this whole time for the larger, 1900 x 1200, 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD to get here. Amazon had been saying that the tablet would finally go up for sale on November 20, but you may be able to get your hands on one just a little sooner. Users who had pre-ordered the WiFi-only ...
