Flipkart Teases OnePlus 3 Sale – ‘What’s This? We’re Exclusive With Amazon

Flipkart’s current relationship status with OnePlus – It’s Complicated. The Indian online retailer today announced it would sell the OnePlus 3 for less than Rs 20,000 during its Big Shopping Days that starts from December 18. This comes as a big surprise, considering the Chinese brand exclusively sells its smartphones via Amazon India in the country. OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei expressed his surprise as well, in a tweet questioning how Flipkart is planning on selling the smartphone.

 

The OnePlus 3, which was launched earlier this year, features a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. It also sports a 16-megapixel rear camera of aperture f/2.0 with PDAF and OIS along with and an 8-megapixel camera up front. Connectivity options include dual-SIM support, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth. On the software runs on Android Marshmallow 6.1 OxygenOS. It draws its juice from a 3,000mAh battery. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner which is embedded in the home button.

Gridlock? Who cares! Audible is here

A confession: I’m an audio book junkie. 

Or at least I used to be before moving away from Southern California and its gridlocked freeways.  Nothing eased the pain of commuting better than Audible. Books like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, The Dharma Bums, Five Dysfunctions of a Team, and Silos, Politics & Turf Wars both entertained and educated me during my daily two-hour commute between Long Beach and Irvine.

I’ve been meaning to get back in the habit when traveling for work, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the official Audible app for Windows Phone, which you can download now from Marketplace.

Back in the day, I had to shop online, connect to a PC, and download audio books to my MP3 player. With the new Windows Phone app, I can download books directly to my phone from Audible’s mobile store (something you won’t find on some other smartphones). I can also pin favorite titles to my Start screen as Live Tiles for one-touch listening (no need to look down, fumble with the player, and risk rear-ending the guy in front of me).

The Audible app is free, but the price tag for books depends on the title. Which books will you be commuting to?

With a complete lack of fanfare, Amazon has thrown the switch allowing users to loan Kindle books as promised. The feature works much the same as the loaning implementation on the Nook. Users can loan a book to one user for two weeks. Loans are apparently limited to a single session, and the original user cannot access the title in that time. 

These are certainly onerous rules, but many publishers aren’t even allowing loans. Early reports indicate that several big publishing houses have loans turned off. These include Avon, Hachette, Harlequin and Penguin. More titles could become available over time as publishers wise up, or authors grant the necessary rights.

Users can loan a book by logging into their Amazon account and checking their purchased books. Loaned books will be readable in any of the Kindle apps or the web client. Loans cannot be initiated from the apps as of yet, but we expect Amazon to add that ability soon. Despite the restrictions, will you take advantage of this feature?

In a recent development, Amazon announced that it would be unveiling additions to its Kindle service as the eBookstore era heats up. Google recently launched the eBookstore which has been tagged as the world’s largest library of titles. Over 3 million titles have been made available, marking its launch.

Amazon highly needed to coup up with things, keeping its Kindle tablet alive. Kindle’s eBookstore would roll in new features that would enable users to read full books in the browser while also allowing other websites, offering Kindle books, to become a bookstore.

According to certain developers, Amazon has launched the eBookstore feature to feature of what Google’s eBookstore consist of. Amazon and Google eBookstore’s might match on all the features but with Amazon’s experience and time in the market, Amazon is surely to grab a lead.

Amazon Kindle For Web

Amazon has its mobile software as well as the popular e-book reader known as Kindle, which has strongly dominated the market for several years. Estimates show that Amazon owns 50 percent of the e-reader market with its dedicated e-reader while Google has no hardware available for its e-Bookstore.

Allen Weiner, analyst at Gartner told:

Who will win, its hard to say. Both are powerful players. Whether there’s a big battle between Google and Amazon depends on what Amazon does next. If Amazon is serious about the device space, they are going to have to open up devices … whether that is based on Windows or Android or something else.

Technology seems to be upgrading every other day, with almost all ideas including gifts, switching to the digital craze. Amazon launched a service which allows customers to buy e-books for e-reader owners. With the newly unveiled service, users can now gift e-books from Amazon’s site by just providing the recipient’s email address. The tech giant tagged a line for the service, “Wrapping a book isn’t that difficult, but not wrapping it is even easier.” The Amazon site displays ”Give as a Gift” icon, with which users can purchase and send books to e-readers.

To top it all, the service is not Kindle specific. Amazon allows users to send a gifted e-book on any mobile device but it would need to have the Kindle application installed. The Kindle app is available for the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as well as RIM’s BlackBerry and smartphone’s based on Google’s Android OS. The app is also available for Windows and Mac PCs.

Amazon Kindle Holiday Gift

All you need to do is choose a book, click the “Give as a Gift” button, add the recipient’s email address and you are done. Amazon would forward an email notifying the person that a gift is waiting to be downloaded.

Amazon reports that its e-book sales have grown at more than 193 percent last year. With the company rolling in this new service, it has a strong view that users would flock to avail this new service. The company would also be offering an exchange program which would offer a gift card to anyone who receives a gifted e-book they don’t want.

The Amazon Gift service is currently unavailable as the company told:

We’re making this functionality available in time for the holidays to offer an easy, stress-free holiday shopping option for anyone — not just Kindle owners.

Kindle For WebAmazon has launched yet another service with Kindle, called Kindle for Web. Previously Kindle users had an ability to preview a few pages of a book before they bought it. This service has now been renamed by Amazon as Kindle for Web. The sample size of books has now been increased to include the entire first chapter of a novel and also including social networking and sharing features.

Using Kindle for Web you can read the entire first chapter of a book, directly from your web browser and no additional software is required. Sharing features of the service include integration with Facebook, Twitter, and if you are a Blogger who uses Amazon’s Associates Program you can share the samples on your blog. Amazon is pushing hard for bloggers to use the samples as every book that is bought from that referral link on their blog will earn the associate referral fees.

Amazon is now pushing the marketing of Kindle to maximum by giving access to the first chapter, as well as allowing integration of social network sharing. Kindle for Web appears to be HTML-5 driven, and could be used on devices like iPad which support it.

You can view a demo page of the service here.
