Amazon could be releasing a new subscription service for readers. Meanwhile new devices from HTC and GooPhone are showing up. Will you get one?
A new Amazon service has started being tested at the online retailer’s website, displaying what could be the most awesome deal avid readers have seen in a long time. These ads show what is to be called Kindle Unlimited, a subscription service that will let you read as many books as you please.
The subscription is said to cost $9.99 a month, which would give you unlimited access to over 600,000 titles. If that wasn’t a good enough price, the deal may also include audio books. The fact that Amazon is testing these banners must mean they are getting ready for an announcement and/or release, so stay tuned for more details. We should have them soon.
Opinion: Some of us definitely spend more than $10 a month in books, so this comes as great news. Especially considering there should be a pretty healthy list of available books. Famous series like Harry Potter, Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings will be available at launch.
HTC’s Desire smartphones usually don’t make it to the USA, but we are happy to see them around when they do. These mid-end, affordable smartphones usually come with a good build quality and design, as well as good specs (for the price). AT&T has just announced the HTC Desire will be available in their network starting July 25th.
This is actually one hell of a deal. The device will cost only $199! This will get you a 4.7-inch qHD display, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, an 8 MP camera and a 2040 mAh battery.
Opinion: Though it’s not made of metal, this little guy will look and feel much like an HTC One M8. Hell, it even comes with front-facing speakers. BoomSound is one of HTC’s best features, so it’s nice to see it coming to a mid-end device.
Apple is getting ready to announce the iPhone 6 (or whatever they may call it), but GooPhone has decided to announce an iPhone 6 clone already. In comes the GooPhone i6, an Android device that manages to look and feel just like an Apple smartphone.
Specs include a 4.7-inch qHD screen, a Mediatek quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and 13MP/5MP cameras. Pricing continues to be a mystery, but we know the device will start shipping on August 1st.
Opinion: Somehow, the Chinese clone maker always manages to release iPhone clones before Apple releases the official device. Maybe they have ways of getting the details from the suppliers? Whatever the case may be, we can always count on GooPhone to offer these iPhone clones.
