Kindle 3 Hits iPad on its New TV Ad

Written on September 14, 2010 by Charles Bass

"It's a Kindle. A $139. I payed more for this sunglasses." The Kindle 3 TV ad aims to dethrone iPad.

Amazon has thrown on purpose a blow over over Apple, when they released a TV ad that takes on the shortcomings of Apple iPad.

The ad was aired today at Good Morning America. It promotes the new Kindle 3 and its $139 price. Much lower than the iPad. It actually mocks the Apple gadget and the comparison is quite reasonable. Two of the main key points of Amazon is that with iPad it is impossible to read when the sun is up and all bright. And the fact that Kindle costs far less than iPad.
Kindle 3 may not have the color, but with the large market place to shop for apps and the screen is better. All the more it is more responsive, updated via e-ink screen and month’s worth of battery life more affordable that price point.

Amazon throughly believes that the product’s price will convince people to buy the device and make it more popular than iPad. It has done pretty good, considering the fact that Kindle 3 is now the fastest selling Kindle ever.

The New Kindle’s Microphone

Written on August 04, 2010 by Aiken Lewis

The press release did mention that the e-Book reader equips users with 3G power. A closer look at the user guide points to the tiny feature that can make dreams of face-to-face conference come true. Well, who could have imagined a video call possibility without the presence of a microphone?

It is a sweet addition to the banner features of the New Kindle (remember, snappy screen, increased storage, and longer battery life?). And it is a smart number Amazon did there–perhaps they were already seeing Kindle users benefiting from the 3G feature as well.

But the feature will remain dormant until Amazon decides to activate it. While its fellow pleasurable yet unheralded features will come in handy with the third generation of Kindle, stuff like the Oxford Dictionary of English for the UK version, the device manual indicates that the microphone is currently disabled but is provided for future use.
