Amazon Announces New Echo Dot Speakers (0)

Online retail giant Amazon has started venturing into product creation instead of just relying into its more popular online selling business model. It has started increasing its line of products to sell to its customers instead of just relying on mostly third-party manufacturers to fill up their shelves of things to sell online. It has since developed e-book readers, tablets, digital TV consoles , and even cloud software services as part of their product line-up. The company has even started developing a portable speaker that can be controlled by a user's voice. And just recently, Amazon has unveiled a new, improved and more affordable model of its Echo Dot speakers. The Smart Wireless Speaker The new Echo Dot speaker was recently announced to the public, just a few months after Amazon launched the first Echo Dot speaker.

That, in itself, makes it an interesting speaker that also makes it smarter. The Echo Dot speaker is not only a means to provide you with audio as you listen to your favorite tunes. With Alexa, you can use the Echo Dot to take your commands, read news to you, control other connected smart devices, and even answer your questions. It also gives Amazon's partner developers different options to develop other features for it in the future. And while these features are available in the previous and current Echo Dot speakers, the newer version comes with an added option to connect it to other larger speakers. The new speaker also comes with an improved speech processor for improved speech recognition. It also introduced a new feature in the Echo Spatial Perception that allows multiple Echo Dots to address commands by the speaker that is closest to the user. And with all these new features, the new Amazon Echo Dot version is cheaper at just $50. The new smart speaker is expected to be available by next month. Image Source: Amazon Read More

Amazon Fire Phone Now Just 99 Cents (0)

It's amazing how Apple can influence the smartphone market in different ways. It can sometimes cause competitors to shudder. Introducing even the smartphone with the best features cannot convince avid Apple aficionados to change gear or sides. In the end, some take drastic measures, just like with the recent news of the 99-cent Amazon Fire phone. Amazon recently announced that it is offering the Amazon Fire phone for just 99 cents for a two-year contract on AT&T. This is a $200 price slash for its 32GB model. In addition, Amazon is also including a one-year access to Amazon Prime and unlimited cloud storage. The drastic price cut for the Amazon Fire may be due to several reasons. One of them may be due to the low demand for the device. It seems that Amazon was not able to convince a lot of people to consider using their new Amazon Fire phone. Another possible reason may be because of the introduction of the new Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, especially since the price drop was announced a day before the Apple event. The low demand for the Amazon Fire coupled with the introduction of the new iPhone models may have led Amazon to take drastic measures to drum up demand. At 99 cents, it may still be able to capture a market for its initial introduction into the smartphone market. But it may be an uphill struggle to compete with the big boys, especially now that they are coming up with new models. People may just end up trying to get this new phone for its interesting price point. Who wouldn't for a 99-cent phone with 0 down on an $18.75 per month for two years?  It is just like Amazon is giving away its phones for next to nothing. Now that is a good deal, regardless whether the phone is that good, or not. Read More

Report: Amazon 3D smartphone coming this Fall (0)

Rumors about Amazon developing a smartphone have been around since 2012, evolving into speculations about the Amazon 3D smartphone last year. A report from The Wall Street Journal claims that Amazon's 3D-capable phone will be unveiled in June, with shipping expected by the end of September. Citing the usual sources who are "familiar with the details," the e-commerce company has been demonstrating its 3D smartphone to developers in San Francisco and Seattle in recent weeks. The demonstrations require developers to visit heavily-guarded hotel suites just to view the prototypes. The Amazon 3D smartphone will reported have four front-facing cameras or sensors that would track where the user is gazine. It also offers a 3D viewing experience without having to wear special glasses. While some say Amazon is going away from its e-commerce expertise by developing its own hardware, one has to look at its Kindle Fire tablet to see the reason behind the madness. A report from ad firm Chitika Insights states that since Christmas of 2013, shares of Kindle Fire grew so significantly that it has eaten away iPad's dominance, at least in North America. Amazon has yet to respond as of this writing. Source: Mashable Image source: Twin Design / Shutterstock.com Read More

Amazon Dash: Scanner that keeps your cupboards full (0)

Amazon has introduced a new way to buy groceries without having to step into your local supermarket. The online retailer unveils the Amazon Dash, a wand-like gadget that collects the groceries you want to buy by scanning them and they get delivered on the same day. The Dash sports a WiFi-capable LED scanner that captures the barcode of any item you need in your cupboard. It can also take notes of the products you want to buy through voice recognition using the device's built-in microphone. As ridiculous as it may sound, using the Amazon Dash makes sense. Not every home has a convenient access to fresh produce, which would have required them to drive for miles just to reach the nearest grocery. The device can also accept orders for non-food items like guitar strings or paper towels. The Amazon Dash is available for free, but only by invitation for now. Meanwhile, the AmazonFresh delivery service is currently only available in parts of California and Washington State. Source: Engadget Read More

Amazon reveals Fire TV, an Android media console (0)

After weeks of speculation, Amazon has finally unveiled its Android-powered media console. The Amazon Fire TV is a slim black box with a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a selection of ports for HDMI, optical audio, and Ethernet. The interface is very visual as you browse through a wide array of movie posters in a moving 3D bar. During the live demonstration, the videos launched right upon pressing play, with nary a lag or loading screen. Developers would not have a hard time porting their apps into the Fire TV because of its open ecosystem based on Android and HTML. Users will also be allowed to access Hulu and Amazon Prime, as well as the likes of Netflix, Plex, and NBA Game Time some time later. It can also retrieve content from other Amazon services, such as photos from the Amazon Cloud Drive. The gadget can be controlled through its remote control, as well as the user's voice using the microphone on the remote. It also provides Amazon's X-Ray function, wherein additional information about the characters, actors, and production notes reveal straight from the Amazon tablet. Apart from streaming movies and TV shows, Amazon Fire TV takes it a step further as it provides gaming options much like the new-gen video game consoles like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The company has announced the likes of 2K, Double Fine, Mojang, and Ubisoft among others who will be bringing their games to the set-top such as Minecraft. To be able to play them, you will need a game controller and Amazon has unveiled just that. It looks similar to the Xbox controller, except that it has Android navigation buttons on the front and media controls along the edge. The Amazon Fire TV is available beginning today for $99.

Amazon game console may come as dongle (0)

Rumor has it that Amazon is reportedly developing a game console of its own, which supposedly hosts Android games. However, new details from Techcrunch's reliable sources claim there is more to the gadget than just an Ouya rival. According to sources, the Lab126-produced Amazon game console will have a dongle-like form factor, similar to the Google Chromecast. They also add that the stick console will have support for streaming full PC game titles straight to your TV, posing potential threats to the likes of Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam. While getting PC games running on televisions is not exactly difficult, controlling a PC game with a standard console controller is another thing. The Amazon game console is said to have remedied this situation by streaming the game through a service instead of from the user's computer, similar to OnLive and PlayStation Now. Other rumors about the Amazon set top box appear to be in conflict with each other, but what seems likely is that the company will support the company's streaming Amazon Instant Video and Amazon MP3.
