by: J. Angelo RacomaSeptember 9, 2012
Amazon will allow Kindle Fire HD users to opt-out of 'special offers' advertising for a one-time payment of $15. But considering you've already paid $499 for the device, should you actually have to pay extra, in the first place?

Amazon and Google no longer friends? Kindle Fire HD integrates Bing instead of Google

by: J. Angelo RacomaSeptember 8, 2012
We earlier learned that a few major companies are trying to reduce their dependence on Google for content and services. For example, Apple is ditching Google Maps on iOS 6. Amazon is also going for Nokia Maps instead of Google Maps in its new Kindle line. But in an even more drastic move, Amazon actually integrates Bing search instead of Google in the Kindle Fire HD.

Amazon: No opt out for Kindle Fire ads on all new models

by: Bams SadewoSeptember 8, 2012
However unobtrusive it may be, some people aren’t ecstatic to hear that the entire new lineup of Kindle Fire will come with “Special Offers” promotion, otherwise known as spammy ads that will show up on the device’s lock screen. The latest confirmation from Amazon ruins whatever hope that consumers would be able to opt out from receiving such ads, as previously thought.

Kindle Fire HD now runs Ice Cream Sandwich, unlike some ‘traditional’ Android tablets

by: Chris SmithSeptember 7, 2012
What interests us is that Amazon has confirmed it made the jump to Ice Cream Sandwich, an Android version that's almost one year old, but one that’s a long way from being ported to plenty of compatible devices out there. At least the Kindle Fire HD versions are running an Android 4.0-based OS – that includes the 7- and 8.9-inch models – but it’s yet to be determined whether the 2012 7-inch Kindle Fire has an ICS-based OS or not.
