Kindle Fire 2 and Glowing Kindle Touch Released on September 6

Amazon is expected to announce the second version of its Kindle Fire tablet at a press conference in Santa Monica, California, on 6 September. The Fire may come in both 7in and — less likely — 10in versions, along with an improved Kindle Touch. One tablet will be supported by advertising to reduce the cost, according to an unconfirmed report in the Wall Street Journal.

While predictions are always risky, Amazon sent us the biggest possible hint yesterday (Thursday), with the announcement that the original Kindle Fire had sold out forever. Visit the Amazon.com page for the $199 Kindle Fire, for example, and there are no new ones for sale, only second-hand products. The $99 Kindle Touch is listed as "Currently unavailable".

There is no prospect of Amazon discontinuing these products, so there must be new versions ready to launch.

A few details of the Kindle Fire 2 (or Kindle Blaze, or whatever) have already appeared. The most significant is an increase in screen resolution from 1024 x 600 pixels to 1280 x 800. The larger format is already used by other tablets, including Google's similarly-priced Nexus 7.

Last month, DisplayMate president Raymond Soneira told the AllThingsD website that this represented "a 67 percent increase in total pixels, and it is visually significant. It gives the display a PPI (pixels per inch) of 216." This should improve the readability of text, and will also enable the Kindle Fire 2 to show HD (720p) videos.

For comparison, Apple's iPad had a lower resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, which was doubled to 2048 x 1536 in the iPad 3. Apple also had to thicken the iPad 3 slightly to provide extra battery power to support the extra pixels, though the Kindle Fire 2 is unlikely to need this.

How to watch videos on Google nexus 7 or other Jelly Bean devices?

When you are excited to get the long-anticipated Google Nexus 7 ordered on the Internet or you just think you are lucky enough to upgrade your android system to Jelly Bean, later you will find out, Adobe Flash isn’t officially supported in the newest Android version, 4.1 Jelly Bean and then you cannot watch the video with your devices. Though the default browser for the Nexus 7 and other Jelly Bean devices is now Chrome,which has built-in Flash support in the desktop versions, this does not apply to mobile devices. Maybe you just want to download the video then watch it on your device,but sometimes you need to convert the video since Jelly Bean don't support all the video formats .Fortunately, there are still some ways,following will be introduced, to watch the streaming videos on your Jelly Bean gadgets.

Abode Flash
You cannot download the flash app on the Google Play and Adobe warned that attempts to install Flash on Jelly Bean devices wouldn’t work, but a couple of XDA-Developers forum members have already found a way to do just that. On devices that upgraded to Jelly Bean, such as the Galaxy Nexus, the stock “Browser” app still exists. Users can sideload the Flash APK and enable it via the browser’s settings, then enjoy surfing and viewing media as before.
Nexus 7 flash
Nexus 7 that comes with Jelly Bean pre-installed no longer have the Browser app, just Chrome. And mobile Chrome won’t hook up with Flash even if it’s installed. Then you need to install the Browser app from previous Android versions. That, coupled with sideloading Flash, will get you back to normal. And you can get the detailed how-to and APK downloads from XDA Developers.

The Comparision: Android4.1 Jelly Bean vs. iOS 6 vs. Windows Phone 8

When it comes to operating system, you must know the mainstream operating system -Android, iOS and Windows Phone. And these days Android4.1 Jelly Bean and iOS 6 and Windows Phone 8 have become very hot. Plenty of folks are interested in the three systems, whether they decide to buy a tablet or a smartphone. But what exactly are these systems? Let’s take a closer look at them and compare them in a few aspects.
Android vs. iOS 6 vs. Windows Phone
Apps
Android is currently at 600,000 total apps. Most of those will run on tablets, but the number of tablet-optimized offerings is obviously lower than iOS (Google won't give an official number, but a quick run through Google Play makes the situation abundantly clear).

Apple owns totally 650,000 apps in the app store and 225,000 of them are for iPad.

Windows Phone currently has 100,000 apps available for download, of course less than the other two. Since the Windows 8 tablet is to be waited, there are no apps for tablet at the moment.

10 things to Start your New Nexus 7 tablet

Nexus 7's home
The Nexus 7 tablet by Google is a great gadget for the price, but can be overwhelming for the new buyer. That's what it seems from the constant correspondence I get from new buyers asking me what to do first with the new purchase. Colleague David Gewirtz is in that crowd, having just bought a Nexus 7 and complaining to me he can't find online what he should do first. This is for David and all the others in the same boat.

Once your Nexus 7 is out of the box follow the onscreen instructions to get it set up for use. That entails supplying your Google Account (aka Gmail) information and entering in your WiFi network details.

3 Best Gaming Tablets on Android to Have a better Games Entertainment

One of the functions of tablets is to play funny games. And you can find so many popular and exciting android games on Google Play for tablets. You may like to play games with PSP or smartphone, but playing games on tablets seems a new amazing choice for those who want to have a better entertainment of games. Therefore, buying a good android tablet for games is a concern. And I have searched the Internet and find some best gaming tablets, and following I want to share them with you.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201
Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 is the best android tablet on the market due to its appealing design and its high end features pack at the moment. It is the first Android tablet which runs quad-core CPU for super snappy performance and impressive gaming experience. It sports an incredible thin profile and a brilliant LED IPS 10.1-inch display which delivers crisp and bright images even at wider viewing angles. The included mobile docking keyboard transforms the tablet into a notebook, as its name indicates. If you purchase the tablet with the optional keyboard dock, you will get a full-size USB port that can connect to standard wired and wireless game controllers. Connect this to your TV with an HDMI cable, and you have the makings of a portable gaming console.

According to Asus, the battery should last up to 12 hours, time that can be extended for 6 more hours when the docking station is attached. The rear 8MP camera with LED flash and large aperture is capable of full 1080p HD video recording, whereas competitors are left behind at 720p.

Sony Tablet S
Sony's Tablet S offers the full catalog of Android Market games, and sweetens the deal with a selection of Sony PS One titles that are available especially to Sony Tablet owners. The tablet comes with optional wireless Bluetooth keyboard and a dock which can turn the table into a photo frame / widget display once locked into it. The 9.4-inch LCD TruBlack™ display provides great vibrant colors and deep blacks creating rich visual experience. Extra features include IR port for use as an universal remote and PlayStation® Certification - common feature with Sony Tablet P - for accessing original PlayStation® games created for PS devices.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
If 10-inch tablets feel too cumbersome, Samsung's Galaxy Tab 8.9 squeezes the power and screen resolution of the larger Galaxy Tab 10.1 into a smaller 8.9-inch format. The result is a stunning 170-ppi pixel density that really shines in console-quality Android games like Blood & Glory. The midsize tablet's light weight and thin design minimize arm and hand fatigue. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE features a PLS-LCD 1280 x 800 pixels panel which displays crisp, clear, super bright and vivid images at wide viewing angles. Its high quality and attractive construction is based on a slim and light weight design. It supports 4G LTE connectivity backed up by a most powerful 1.5GHz dual core CPU for super-fast data transferring.

If you want to shop for a good gaming tablet, I think you can pick out one from these three android if you don’t want a iPad.

Toshiba AT300 View

It was only a few months ago that I reviewed the Toshiba AT300's predecessor, the AT200. Still, this new tablet has a revised design and updated specifications. There are three AT300 models: two are Wi-Fi-only with 16GB or 32GB of internal storage costing £274 and £315 (ex. VAT) respectively, while the third is a 16GB Wi-Fi/3G model priced at £329 (ex. VAT).

Toshiba has equipped the AT300 with plenty of punch and a neat physical design, while maintaining reasonably affordable prices. This  thin and light 10.1in. Android tablet measures 260.6mm wide by 178.9 deep by 8.95mm thick and weighs 590g. It doesn't have the most solid feel in the hand, but the stippled silver backplate is nice and grippy. I do prefer the look of the previous model, which is also a bit thinner and lighter, although the AT300 is certainly no monster.

Toshiba's insistence on a proprietary power connection will irritate anyone who uses their tablet a lot and needs regular access to mains power, as it means carrying another AC adapter. The device's Micro-USB port can be used for data exchange and USB host, but not for powering the battery.
Toshiba AT300

The LED backlit 1,280-by-800-pixel screen is protected by tough Gorilla Glass, but does seem to lack the top-end brightness I've seen from the very best. There's also a slight problem with sound: there are two speakers, and they deliver a fair volume, but audio quality is tinny and doesn't really improve with headphones, either.

Toshiba scores well on connectivity, with Micro-HDMI on board as well as a full-sized SD card slot. I rather like this: microSD cards can be accommodated via a caddy, but the larger slot makes it easy to get images from a camera on to the AT300. If you'd rather use the tablet's main rear-mounted camera for image capture, its 5 megapixel capability isn't that great, but it does have a small LED flash. There's a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video communication too.
The AT200 shipped with Android 3.2, which is upgraded to Android 4.0 on the AT300. Toshiba adds a fair few apps to the standard bundle, including ThinkFree Office, Evernote, a file manager, Splashtop for remote access to another device and the McAfee Mobile Security suite.

The tablet is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of RAM, and is admirably responsive when running applications and games.
The Toshiba AT300's build quality and camera could be better, and I really don't like the proprietary power cable. On the other hand, the quad-core processor is capable, connectivity and expansion facilities are good, and the price is attractive.

Best Cheap Tablets Under $200 for 2012

With the tablets becoming more and more popular, plenty of folks want to own one. For the powerful functions and portable value, you can see tablets everywhere, like school, company and even meeting room. Of course tablets are all the rage, but not everyone can afford a $500 iPad or android tablet. The good news is that competition among an active tablets market should eventually drive down prices. In fact, Amazon Kindle Fire has already started that process and then Google nexus 7 continue the process. And many other good android tablets have started to come down a bit in price. Here we can see a list of best cheap tablets for 2012.

Google Nexus 7
Undoubtedly, Google nexus 7 brings the tablet to a climax and it turns out that cheap price also can produce best android tablet. At $199,Nexus 7 is a great balance of performance and price for anyone not married to the Apple ecosystem. It’s a revolutionary steal that’s more advanced and powerful than the Transformer, but just as cheap, entertaining, and portable as the much slower Fire. You might have to do a little hunting to find great content on the Nexus 7 (m0re on that later), but 600,000 apps in the Google Play and a mediocre movie, music, and magazine selection is enough to get by for this class of device, especially if you’re willing to take the time to rip the music and movies you already own to use on it. Google nexus 7 can be a miracle of android tablet in 2012, and you will never regret buying it.

Kindle Fire
Kindle Fire is produced by Amazon, a well-known online retailer. The Kindle Fire is a 7-inch tablet that links seamlessly with Amazon's impressive collection of digital music, video, magazine, and book services in one easy-to-use package. It boasts a great Web browser, and its curated android app store includes most of the big must-have apps (such as Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu). The Fire has an ultra-affordable price tag, and the screen quality is exceptional for the price. Though it lacks the tech specs found on more-expensive Apple and Android tablets, the $199 Kindle Fire is an outstanding entertainment value that prizes simplicity over techno-wizardry. And if you don’t like nexus 7, maybe kindle fire is your great choice.

 Nook Tablet
The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet is a full-featured tablet with a vibrant 7-inch touch screen, built-in Wi-Fi, 16GB of built-in storage, and a microSD expansion slot. In addition to a full slate of books and magazines, it offers more than a thousand apps through its integrated (and growing) Nook Store and is optimized for Netflix and Hulu Plus video playback. The built-in Web browser works well and offers Flash support. The things we should concerned are there are no access to full Android Market; no Bluetooth, GPS, or camera; no video rental (or purchase) option; sideloaded content beyond 1GB needs to be housed on microSD for Nook tablet.Whatever, the Nook Tablet is a worthy--albeit slightly more expensive--competitor to the Kindle Fire.

Blackberry Playbook
RIM’s BlackBerry smartphones have an impressive following in the UK business community, but the momentum failed to carry over to the 7-inch PlayBook tablet. Now, nearly a year after its launch, RIM has released an operating system upgrade that adds much-needed features, and with most retailers cutting the price of the PlayBook substantially, it’s become a serious contender. The dual-core 1GHz processor will let you run several apps in different windows and swap between them. Each app takes up the full screen, but swipe upwards and it’s minimised into a window tile that you can scroll through or close down. The new OS update brings support for ported Android apps like Angry Birds, which means the limited selection on App World should start to grow. This is a very well made tablet available at a very reasonable price. Compared to the other devices, the PlayBook stands out as the clear favourite.

Kobo - Vox tablet
The Kobo Vox is something you should consider if you really are on a shoestring budget – being the cheapest Android tablet in this rundown – you can pick one up. Kobo Vox has very little storage space (8GB, approx. 10 movies or 4,000 books), but you can insert up to a 32GB SD card into it to expand the memory if needed, for just a small price. Mainly built as an eReader, this is a great 7″ tablet for those that are considering both a Kindle and a tablet. Essentially, it is both of the two fused together in a stylish little package. The quilted style backing is something that stands out and Kobo can be proud of their innovatively on that one. The unique design continues into the buttons, with the power, menu and back buttons all being touch sensitive (and therefore not sticking out).Compared to others, maybe Kobo Vox is kind of low popularity,but it still be a good choice for those who want to look for a real good cheap android tablet.

Certainly there are many other cheap android tablets, but these tablets I have listed will be the best for 2012.Maybe you will like them,too.

Kindle Fire vs New iPad, Which is Right for you?

Kindle Fire and iPad
As Amazon’s first foray into the tablet market, Kindle Fire is widely perceived as the first real competitor to the iPad. Many people who want to buy a tablet just cannot decide which one to buy. Although the release of Nexus 7 makes the condition changed, Kindle Fire is still a great choice for most people for its popularity. So for those who want to buy one from Kindle Fire and New iPad, getting a better understanding of these two tablets is very important. Following we will compare these two tablets in every possible ways.

Specs

First,the considering factor should be the price. At $199, the Kindle Fire will be a full $300 cheaper than the lowest-priced iPad 2. That's possibly an easier entry point for folks who are intrigued by the iPad but can't justify spending $500 for a portable computer when they already have a smartphone and a laptop.
New iPad vs Kindle Fire
Hardware cannot decide everything. That means the new iPad thoroughly creams the Kindle Fire in a strict spec comparison. However, not everyone needs Apple's dual-core A5X processor with quad-core graphics. After all, the dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP4 processor in the Kindle Fire is no slouch. A tablet's screen is one of its most important features, and the iPad's 9.7-inch 2,048-by-1536-pixel Retina Display can't be beat. But what if you want to slip your tablet into your jacket pocket? The Kindle's 7-inch (1,024-by-600-pixel) display makes it a lot easier to tote, but it also limits your screen real estate.

Both tablets offer unlimited cloud storage for their respective eco-system content, so internal storage may not be a huge factor, but it's worth thinking if you need to load your own content. The Kindle Fire offers 8GB, while the iPad comes in 16G, 32G, and 64GB capacities. MicroSD or any other storage expansion options are not available on both these two tablets.

As to connectivity, The new iPad offers 4G LTE compatibility, which gives it an edge over the Kindle Fire, but don't forget that there are plenty of solid and affordable mobile hotspot options that will bring the same capability to Amazon's Wi-Fi-only tablet. Both tablets are 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi compatible, but only the iPad supports AirPlay and Bluetooth—this is especially important if you want to stream music or videos wirelessly to your compatible speakers or HDTV.

If you want your new tablet to own a digital camera, then the iPad's new 5-megapixel camera will be a big factor. The Kindle Fire lacks a camera, but the general usefulness of tablet cameras is still up for debate. For Battery life, Kindle Fire is likely to be longer on the iPad.

Software

More than anything, the software is what sets the Fire and the iPad apart. The Fire’s home screen is a dark faux-wood bookshelf; a search box is fixed on the top, and a list of media categories is spread out underneath it. Below that, recently used items appear on a “carousel” and take up most of the bookshelf, with the rest reserved for a scrollable “favorites” area, where you can pin apps, books, magazines, websites, videos, and even music. The interface is all about getting to your media quickly; rather than tapping on an app and then drilling down to the media you want, à la iPad, you can just click on the media itself. It’s an interesting concept, and it works well.

While the Fire runs a heavily modified build of Android 2.3, you can still feel Android when you’re using it, in the jerky scrolling, in the ever-present software Back, Home and Menu buttons, and in the slightly modified notification drawer. The browser on the Fire, called Silk, has a feature that’s supposed to accelerate page loading: Popular pages are monitored by Amazon and cached on their servers, so when you browse to one of those sites, it loads faster. The problem is that the service doesn’t seem to work well; Vimeo user Sencha did a video comparison of the Fire’s browser with acceleration turned on and off, and the results showed that Silk doesn’t make much of a difference. For now, the iPad’s browser is just as fast as the Fire’s, but Kindle Fire now can upgrade to Jelly Bean which is considered as the best android system so that it can run faster on the web.

Apps

The Fire will run on a modified version of Google's Android operating system. That means users will have access to several thousand apps in Amazon's app store for Android. The New iPad, of course, has access to more than 425,000 apps in the Apple Store. So, advantage iPad on this one.

Amazon has, of course, optimized the Fire for its own content, like streaming movies, e-books and music. It also will come with a 30-day free look at Amazon Prime, the company's premier service that offers free two-day shipping of products from Amazon.com and free streaming from a library of more than 11,000 movies and TV shows.

Conclusion

We can get the conclusion that New iPad is better than Kindle Fire,but its expensive price may keep many people from buying it. Whatever, Kindle Fire is a best android tablet with an inexpensive price.When you decide to buy one from this two,you should synthesizes each factor and make a wise decision.

Sony's Next Xperia Tablet Shows Face

Prior to the “unveiling event” that Sony’s planning to hold in Berlin at the end of the month, some details regarding its mysterious Xperia tablet have recently popped online. From the use of Tegra 3 processor to its 9.4-inch HD display, the leaked slides show that Sony means serious business this time around by featuring specs that won’t disappoint, in order for the device to compete with the best tablets in the market.
Xperia Tablet
While the specs definitely seem promising, the slides didn’t have any clear pictures of the tablet to really pique our interest. That is, until promotional pictures of the “evolved” Xperia tablet have been mercifully leaked.
Xperia Tablet
Gone is the wedge shape that the previous Tablet S comes with. Actually, it’s not completely gone, but it’s somewhat been refined. The back cover is cladded with plastic on top, where you can see the Xperia branding, while the rest of the body is covered in aluminum. The power and volume button, meanwhile, are positioned on the right side of the tablet. Software-wise, the tablet seems to be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Xperia Tablet
Aside from the fact that it’s set to be another gorgeous tablet offering from Sony, we now know that Xperia will be part of the tablet’s name. If the tablet is really priced to move (cheapest 16GB model to start at $400), we think Sony will have a good Q4. Guess we’ll have to wait for a couple of more weeks to find out the complete details. In the meantime, enjoy the leaked pictures of the slate.

Then, many games looked better on Galaxy Tab 10.1 than on the iPad 2 with more vibrant and appropriately saturated colors. For example, “Toy Story 3" was vibrant and colorful and teemed with more life (yes, even in a cartoon) than on the other Android tablets. The speakers are powerful, and capable of deep, thumping bass.

The 8-megapixel rear camera took high-quality pictures for a tablet camera with a sharpness and level of color vibrancy. The default camera app exists at a slightly more streamlined interface and includes a few options like white-balance setting and a timer, but a zoom function is unavailable.
