Amazon’s Kindle Fire Line Business Strategy – Good or Bad? – XDA Developer TV

Recently, Amazon announced new products in the Kindle Fire product line. In fact, we even gave the Fire HD 7 a place here in our forums.

XDA Developer TV Producer azrienoch is here to give his opinion on Amazon’s Kindle Fire line business strategy.  Is it a wise thing for Amazon to sell their Kindle Fire products at a loss to make sure that customers are in the Amazon content ecosystem?

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion.
