Speculation surrounding an Amazon Kindle smartphone has been rife for the past few years, but it looks like the device is finally coming to fruition. These images show off a prototype of the upcoming handset, which is claimed to be one of at least two that are currently in development.

After finally bringing its Office suite to the iPad on Thursday, Microsoft rolled out an update to its existing Android and iPhone apps that makes one major change: they’re now completely free to use.

Unlike the tablet version, the smartphone apps no longer require an Office 365 subscription.

Russian government officials have ditched the iPad in favor of Samsung-made tablets according to a recent report. The move was supposedly made to “ensure tighter security.”

Russia’s telecoms minister Nikolai Nikiforov notes that Russian officials switched over to Samsung tablets “not so long ago,” and noted that the new tablets are “specially protected devices that can be used to work with confidential information.”

Samsung-Galaxy-PRO-ad

The only thing Samsung loves more than copying its competition is mocking them. In a new ad for its Galaxy PRO series tablets, the South Korean company picks on rival tablets to highlights the benefits of its own.

Entitled “It Can Do That,” the one-minute clip pokes fun at iPad’s inability to run multiple apps side-by side; the Surface tablet’s keyboard, mouse, and battery dock; and the Kindle for supposedly being little more than an e-book reader.

The Plinth isn’t just a super-compact tablet stand — it’s an amusing party trick.

Slide the sleek accessory out of your pocket or purse and into the hands of a friend and you’ll likely be met with a quizzical stare as they try to figure out what, exactly, the flat plastic object is. Thin, feather-light and somewhat curiously shaped, the Plinth — which currently exists only as a 3-D prototype, although if you’re quick you can get in on the Kickstarter campaign — looks something like a Chinese puzzle box or a Transformer in stealth mode.

It’s obviously composed of multiple parts that fit together seamlessly, and a couple of buttons look like they might do something. But let a friend fondle the plastic object, and they’ll likely fiddle with it for a while before they discover the Plinth’s awesome secret.

It’s been a while since Samsung mocked Apple and its iOS devices to sell its latest smartphones and tablets, but if you thought the South Korean company had moved past all that, you can think again.

It has today published two new videos via its official YouTube channel that mock the iPhone and the iPad to sell the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1.
