I know that today is Apple’s big day, but in even bigger news (at least to Android fans), Amazon has released a Prime Instant Video client to the world’s biggest smartphone platform. Check the calendar – not April 1, right? It’s hard to believe. For years, Amazon has kept Prime video from Android users outside of their own Kindle lineup. Who knows the reason, but that reason has come to pass. (more…)
Yesterday, @evleaks tweeted out a decently-sized spec list for the rumored “Prime” device from HTC, which included a 5.5″ WQHD display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, Cat 6 LTE radios, and water resistance.
Today, we could have our first small look at the rear side of the device, which shows HTC’s infamous Duo Camera, and a not-so-flush main camera sensor. (more…)
Life would probably be a lot less awesome if Amazon’s Prime service did not exist. Forget the streaming video part of it all, I’m talking specifically about its free 2-day and low-priced 1-day shipping options when you become a subscriber. I probably can’t even put into words how much I rely on Amazon for personal and professional items to be delivered within a day or two at such low rates. But what if we could get those same items even faster? Amazon is going to try with a new program called Amazon Prime Air that uses drones for delivery. Yes, drones. (more…)
Ready to root your Transformer Prime? The latest in 1-click tools has been released by @_viperboy_, all built off of the NachoRoot root method created by @TeamAndIRC that we showed on video yesterday. As with any 1-click tool, this will get you rooted or unrooted within a couple of easy clicks on a Windows machine.
Grab the tool from this RootzWiki thread and get to rooting.
Asus has already made it clear that an announcement for their new Transformer Prime is coming on November 9, but could that also be the launch date? According to their Q3 investor document, that is exactly what will happen. And not only do they plan to launch this device then, but Asus wants to take firm hold of the Android tablet market and likely start to crack into Apple’s by releasing two additional slates in Q1 of next year. Could that be the silly Padfone and a new Slider?
Quite a bit of “perfection” talk going on in that document. Asus must be feelin’ really good about their new line of tablets which likely has a lot to do with the inclusion of NVIDIA’s quad-core Kal-El processors.
