While Amazon is of course most known for their massive online store I would say the next biggest thing they are known for is their tablets. The company is set to expand their tablet offerings next month with the Fire HD8, Fire HD10, the Fire, and the Fire Kids Edition.
Over the weekend Amazon had two new listings on their new products page, one was for the NVIDIA SHIELD Console and the second was for a Pro version of it. The NVIDIA SHIELD console is nothing new and was announced at GDC back in March. We were unaware of a “Pro” version though and it looks like Amazon let the cat out of the bag.
Amazon is looking to test their same-day delivery drones in Cambridge, England. Late last year Amazon announced that they were considering using drones as a way of dramatically reducing the time it takes to deliver orders to customers. Many though this could just be a publicity stunt, but it look like Amazon is moving forward with the plan.
Amazon has really entered the consumer electronics space in the past few years. The of course have their Kindle line, but also the Fire TV, Fire TV stick and Fire Phone. They have just announced a new product called Echo, which is a voice-controlled speaker that not only supports streaming music, but also order commands for items on Amazon.
Rumors started about Google purchasing Twitch for $1 Billion about three months ago. Since then we have not heard anything official from either Google or Twitch. So has the deal even happened or is Twitch looking for other suitors? Well it has been reported today by multiple sources that Amazon is in “late stage stalks” to purchase Twitch.tv for $1 billion.
Today Amazon is launching their first set-top box to tackle the living room. Many people thought the Fire TV was going to be a dongle, but it is a set-top box much like an Apple TV or Roku box. It packs some impressive hardware and really beats out the competition in terms or performance and features.
Many people have been waiting for Grand Theft Auto V to hit the PC market. Well the PC Version of the game has shown up on both France and German versions of Amazon. While the France product page has been taken down the German one is still live at the time of writing this article. This is of course for the pre-order of the game and it is listed for 59,99 EUR.
Rumors have been heating up that Amazon will soon be releasing new Kindle Fire tablets. This does makes sense as Amazon recently lowered the price of the Kindle family and holiday season is right around the corner. It looks like the first press shot of the a new Amazon Kindle has been leaked. Don’t be too excited it looks almost identical to the Kindle’s that are out now.
