Reuters: Amazon Interested To Purchase OMAP Processor Division From Texas Instruments

(GSM Insider) - Early before, there are rumours stated that Texas Instruments set to quit smartphone and tablet market. But Texas Instruments clears the air and denied that rumour. On the latest rumours, it is suggested that Texas Instruments set to sell of its mobile Processor division to Amazon.


Texas Instruments' OMAP mobile processor is the main processor for Amazon's Kindle eReader and tablets. It is logic that Amazon really interested to takeover the processor division and this is surely makes them a real player in the tablet and smartphone market.

If Amazon successfully acquired the mobile processor division of Texas Instruments, it will provide no other better chance for them to enter the smartphone market. This will definitely cut the costs especially the processors are made by own subsidiary. This is the golden moment for both Amazon and Texas Instruments. We hope that Amazon smartphone coming soon.  [source]

Walmart Stopped Selling Amazon Kindle Devices

Kindle Fire 2, Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HD 8.9 All Come With Advertisement From Amazon

(GSM Insider) - As a consumer, we hate advertisement on mobile app. Those app with spam and lots of mobile ads are not popular among users. So what if your tablet come with the annoying advertisement? This will cut down your interest on this device. Right?



According to news, the new Kindle tablets come with integrated advertisements include the most expensive Kindle Fire HD 8.9 4G LTE. It is a very disappointed news for Kindle fans. We are unsure over the move by Amazon on integrate advertisement on their Kindle tablets since the Kindle tablets are not free. The new Kindle tablets include Kindle Fire 2012, Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HD 8.9 and Kindle Fire HD 8.9 4G LTE. In opposite, there are no advertisements on chepear eReader. 

You might ask, what Amazon doing? We also dont know. Try to imagine if Apple iPad comes with ads and Android tablet integrated with advertisement. Will you buy them?  [Source]
