Samsung Galaxy Note vs Amazon Kindle Fire

by 2 years ago

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a 5.3″ device that should be the biggest, yet still pocketable, Android device once it’s on the market. It blurs the line between a tablet and a smartphone. You could watch videos on it, play games, browse the web and read books, too.  This is why it could a much more portable reading and media consumption device, while still being pocketable, than something like a Kindle Fire. So, let’s see how they stack up against each other. Samsung Galaxy Note Specs Processor: dual core 1.4 Ghz Exynos chip Display:  5.3″ Super AMOLED + Gorilla Glass Resolution:…

by 2 years ago

Amazon recently released its own ‘Fire’ Android Tablet, which will run on Google’s mobile OS. Despite using Google’s own program, it does not display the said company’s brand logo.

Amazon Kindle Fire to be Unveiled Tomorrow

by 2 years ago

Amazon is going to hold an event tomorrow, and all rumors point to them announcing and showcasing their upcoming Android-based tablet, the Amazon Kindle Fire. The latest rumors about the specs of this tablet are very contradicting, with some saying the tablet will sport a dual-core OMAP 4 processor, while others are saying it will have an older OMAP 3 processor (much like the original Nook Color). I don’t think Amazon should be fighting to have the best specs in this tablet, but it all depends on what kind of tablet they want to have in the first place. An OMAP 3…
