So now that we’ve seen some details about the Amazon Kindle Tablet, I have to say that I’m a little disappointed in what the Amazon tablet is shaping up to be. The price seems pretty good compared to the Nook Color, and compared to the Kindle reader. This is the price Amazon should’ve gone for from the very beginning, not the early rumored $350 for the 7″ tablet. I still think there was a change of plan in the last minute, which is why the tablet has been delayed so much compared to the initial rumor about launching in August….

Every tablet really wants to be the iPad 2 Killer and take the throne away from Apple’s golden boy. A lot of companies have boasted that their product will be the one to take away Apple’s top spot.

The New York Post has reported that the Amazon Android-based tablet will be “hundreds less” than an iPad 2. As the HP TouchPad showed us, consumers are interested if the price is right, even about a device they didn’t even know they want until that point. With a strategy that takes those people into account, Amazon might boost the Android tablet market share overnight. Like iPad, for half the price If they are able to say this about their tablet (meaning the price will be $250 or less), then the word will quickly spread out that Amazon (a brand many…

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…
