Nexus 7 sales hit 1 million monthly

Google’s tiny 7-inch tablet with Android has launched a new trend in this market. Although not completely a new idea, having Google’s official stamp on the 7-inch device and Apple’s inadvertent support of the form factor with the iPad mini have given the smaller tablets a boost. With a starting price of $199 it was a very interesting trade for customers, but so far no official sale numbers have been released. Now Asustek’s CFO has finally given a hint about the figures and they are pretty good for the Nexus 7. With decent competition coming from the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD ($199) and Apple's 7.9-inch iPad mini ($329); Google will not have an easy time in the market, but at least customers will have decent choices.

Amazon: Our Kindle is better!

Amazon has decided to use their position as the world's largest on-line store, in an effort to draw attention to their device, or better yet, to dissuade people from the competition. Thus visitors to their home page are treated to a very "subtle" statement that the Kindle Fire HD offers "a lot more for a lot less money." The screenshot of Amazon's Web site makes it all clear. Kindle's manufacturer points out that Fire HD has an HD screen with 30% more pixels than the iPad mini and also higher pixel density (216 to 163 PPI).

No more Samsung LCD panels for Apple

Samsung’s ongoing war with Apple is continuing as Samsung has decided not to provide any more LCD panels for various Apple products. Although the reason behind this is said to be less profit due to Apple's new supply pricing strategy, if we consider what happened in the last few years with these two companies it's no wonder that they have decided to stop the partnership. Samsung should compensate this with increased orders coming from Amazon, as they are doing great with their new Kindle family of devices.

Kindle Paperwhite goes beyond expectations

Amazon1

It looks like Amazon was pesimistic about the Paperwhite launch as the preorders have exceeded their expectations by quite a lot.  It doesnt make much sense if you consider that it's predcessor the Kindle eReader was the most sold item from the Kindle family and you can only expect better results if you bring a decent upgrade like the Paperwhite. Amazon started to ship the devices yesterday and if you try to buy it now, the Paperwhite could be yours after a 4 to 6 week delay due to high demand. There is also a limit of two devices per customer.

As many analysts are trying to make claims at the number of units the unannounced iPhone and rumored 7-inch, iPad Mini will sell we have something a little more real for the consumer. Amazon has introduced us to the next generation of Kindle Fire Tablets. It was not that long ago that Amazon made quite a splash with their Kindle Fire tablet despite many feeling it would not do that well once the “newness” wore off. Following on the heels of that success Amazon has decided to up their game a little in response to not only Apple, but also Windows RT and even other Android Tablets.

Hot on the heels of the rumor that Facebook was going to release a phone we saw another rumor popup that Amazon would be the next contender for a branded smartphone. These rumors were fueled further when Brandon Watson left Microsoft for Amazon in February.  Watson had been in charge of the developer experience for Windows Phone 7 and now is one of the people that help to push the Kindle app out to multiple devices.
