Amazon Slashes Prices On Kindle Fire HD 8.9 Across The Board ($30 Off Wi-Fi, $100 Off LTE), Now On Sale In Europe And Japan

Whether to combat flagging sales or reflect lower component prices, Amazon dropped the price of its Wi-Fi 8.9" Kindle Fire HD today by roughly 10% - down to $270 for the 16GB model. The price of the 32GB model dropped by $30 as well, to $300. The LTE model received a much more substantial 20% cut, and now costs $400 - $100 less than the price it debuted for.

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 isn't exactly old news - it began shipping only 5 months ago in the US, and $300 for the entry-level model was scarcely believable even at that time.

CyanogenMod 10.1 Lands For 7 New Devices: DROID 3, 4, RAZR, BIONIC, One X (GSM), Kindle Fire (1st And 2nd Gen)

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

After rolling out CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly builds for three other devices yesterday (along with M2 builds), the CM dev community has kept the steam going into today - adding 7 new supported handsets to the latest version of Android's most popular custom ROM.

Amazon, Not Content With Duplicating Everything Else Google Does, Releases A Mobile Ad API

When Android first came out, there were a lot of concerns about an open source OS. One of the biggest ones was, what if a company takes Android, strips everything Google out of it, and builds an entirely new platform on top of it? Well, Amazon seems dead set on making sure we know what that's like. The company has already built its own Appstore, content delivery services, and closed hardware on top of Google's baby.

[New App] Market Helper Lets You Download Incompatible Apps Without Changing The Build.prop (Root Only)

One of the more annoying things about the Android app ecosystem is that there are loads of apps and games that are needlessly restricted to one device or another. If you care to get down and dirty, you can edit the build.prop file on rooted devices to make your device appear to be something other than what it is. Market Helper gets you the same results, but it doesn't touch the build-prop and it's easy to revert to your original profile.

Amazon Introduces 'AutoRip' – A New Service That Gives MP3s To Customers Who Bought CDs From Amazon Within The Last 15 Years

Amazon introduced today a new service that gives back to customers who have purchased physical CDs over the last 15 years. Yes, fifteen. It's called AutoRip, and it essentially offers free MP3s of CDs purchased since 1998. If you've been buying music from Amazon for a while, this is absolutely killer. It's worth noting that not all titles are eligible for AutoRip due to licensing restrictions, but Amazon is adding more AutoRip-eligible titles "all the time."

Just like with other Amazon music purchases, the AutoRip tracks go straight to your Cloud Player library and don't count against Cloud Storage limits.

Amazon's Tablet-Friendly Mobile App Not Just For Your Nexus 7 Anymore – Update Brings Increased Compatibility

Since its launch, we've had bittersweet feelings about the Amazon Mobile app for Tablets. The app shows promise as a tablet-friendly shopping solution, but until now has suffered an extremely limited compatibility, only working with tablets running 4.1 and up and carrying a 1280x800 resolution.

An update to the app today, however, has changed all that. Along with a few bug fixes, the update (to version 5.50.1010 for those keeping count at home) brings support for devices in 7" or 10" form factors, with a variety of resolutions, and loosened OS requirements.
