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?

Why I Ditched iTunes For Amazon MP3s [MP3s]

Confession: I still buy my music online instead of torrenting it. And after years of enduring an unfulfilling relationship with iTunes, last month I finally broke things off. I headed over to …
