Amazon has knocked £30 ($49) off its 7-inch Wi-Fi Kindle Fire HDX tablets for a limited time in the United Kingdom. The discount makes the 16GB base model just £169 ($276), while the 32GB and 64GB models are now £199 ($326) and £229 ($375) respectively.


Amazon has today revealed that its family of Kindles brought record sales between Black Friday and Cyber Monday for the third year running. But as usual, the retail giant won’t tell us exactly how many devices it has sold.


Amazon doesn’t just have some awesome smartphone deals for Cyber Monday, but also a nice saving on its latest 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX. The device is currently $50 cheaper in the U.S. and £30 cheaper in the U.K., but you’ll need to purchase yours today to take advantage of the offer.


You’ve probably heard that the new iPad mini with Retina display has a significantly smaller color gamut that the larger iPad Air, but how does it compete against rival tablets like the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HDX?

According to the experts at DisplayMate, not very well. In fact, the new iPad mini came a “distant third” in their tablet display shootout, thanks to Apple’s “inexcusable” decision to use old technology.

“Apple was once the leader in mobile displays, unfortunately it has fallen way behind,” DisplayMate says.


If you bought a new Kindle Fire HDX and you’ve decided you don’t like its user interface, or being locked into Amazon’s ecosystem, then you’ll be pleased to know it has now been rooted. This opens the device up to the possibility of custom ROMs, and the ability to manually install Android APKs.
