Recently, everyone’s been talking about Amazon’s planned line of Android tablets. Being one of the world’s biggest companies, and arguably one of the best-positioned to introduced a new product to a market, there are a lot of rumors flying around about what exactly these tablets will bring to the table. After all, the tablet market is currently one of the most crowded places for a product to be nowadays. However, Amazon’s already available offering, the Kindle, may offer a hint. What Amazon did with the Kindle was provide a ready-made source for digital items that you can use on it,…

Amazon seems to be making some headway in the app store department. The internet giant has just concluded a deal with Popcap for exclusive distribution of their first two Android games. Amazon’s Appstore for Android is a great alternative to the basic Android Market and with this, Amazon is showing everyone that it knows what it’s doing. Chuzzle and the runway hit Plants vs. Zombies will be coming to the Amazon Appstore for a two-week exclusive period, with Chuzzle hitting the store on Tuesday and Plants vs. Zombies will arrive later in the month. As an added treat, Popcap’s already…

Sideloading isn’t exactly the optimal method to install your apps. After all, that’s what the Android Market’s for. Unfortunately sometimes you really need to install the app without purchasing it again – after all, if you’ve bought it via alternate legal means, you probably won’t be able to fire up the Android Market just to buy it again or maybe, the app isn’t available on the market and this is the only way you’ll be able to get it. Anyway, more than a year ago, AT&T showed off a line of Android phones that depended entirely on the Android Market…

They closed out the week by announcing popular developer Gameloft will publish their games though Amazons marketplace. Here’s a quick rundown of some of the things Amazon App market has done in its first big week… First and foremost, they got Gameloft. I have been a fan of their awesome (and hard to…

Amazon are stirring up quite a haze around their involvement with Android at the moment. Sure, the Amazon Kindle application for Android has been around for a while now, but we’ve recently learned Amazon might launch their own App Store for Android too. To become a developer for this Amazon App Store you have to pay a fee of $99 and Amazon will pay you a royalty equal to the greater of 70% of the purchase price or 20% of the List Price as of the purchase date. What is most interesting comes next… It has subsequently been alleged that…

It doesn’t get better than this.  Amazon has lowered the price of AT&T’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S, the Captivate.  The smartphone is on sale for $.01 and the activation fee of $36.00 will be credited to your wireless bill.  To get this stellar offer, you must sign a two-year service agreement with AT&T.

It is becoming a trend for Amazon to start offering good deals for new mobile phones when you purchase through them. We recently reported how phones like the Samsung Vibrant and Captivate were on sale there, and now it is the turn of the Droid 2. Indeed, you can now pick-up this device for only $99.99 providing you sign into a new service plan too. This deal brings the Droid 2  pricing in-line with the non-Android Blackberry Torch. The Torch is often reviewed as a weaker phone so this serves to highlight the great value of this deal for potential…

If you missed the one-day only special deal from T-Mobile for the Samsung Vibrant, fear not! Amazon have released a better deal directly through their website. When you get a new service plan with T-Mobile you can pick the Samsung Vibrant up for a cool $0.01 penny. You will even receive free two-day shipping as well. So whats the catch? You have to be a new customer, and the offer is not available in all zip codes. This is most interesting because in the UK almost all high-end devices like the Samsung Vibrant are free on ÂŁ35/month contracts for 24…

For a short moment the HTC Desire HD apparently made a surprise appearance on the Amazon UK website. The HTC Desire HD, also known to some as the HTC Ace, is alleged to be a 4.3-inch, 8MP touting Android 2.2 smartphone. According to the leaked screenshot, the device will become available for ÂŁ415 ($650) but due to the fact we only have an image to work with, we cannot look into the HTML code behind to see if there are any other juicy its of information to piece together. Amazon pulled the listing shortly after posting it, which has only…
