How To Listen To Kindle Books On Android

How can I convince my parents to get me a nook.

I want a regular nook with 3g and wifi when ever I ask them they say no any advice?

Hi, I love Bichon Frises, here’s the sales pitch for you.Folks that get an eReader generally read 3-4 times more books than before they got one thus that speaks for the devices (worth the money and useful.) There’s advantages of eReaders – for example, you can put MP3’s on them and listen while you read and they can hold thousands of books in digital format.When choosing an eReader, you need to consider not only the physical properties of the device, but also compare eBook stores behind it. Sony has never been a contender for any comparison by anyone as they only have like 20 books in their Ebook store and their devices are way overpriced for what they offer. Borders is behind Kobo/Cruz devices in US and as you might of heard, Borders is on a brink of bankruptcy. Kindle and Nook are the only devices to be considered as their eBook stores have over a million of free public ebooks as well as over a million of ebooks that you need to pay for available.Several features of Nook’s environment are similar to regular books (unlike Kindle’s) such as:- Nook allows to lend books for two weeks to friends or to your other devices that run B&N app (PC, MAC, Android phones, Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad, etc.)- When you walk in with the Nook to B&N store you’re allowed to read any available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi.- Nook can be used for library ebooks and for renting text-ebooksYou should understand the limitations of e-Ink eReaders – they are limited to be black & white for now, they “blink” at each ebook’s page turn, they’re not too good for web browsing, they need external light source for reading when dark, and they cannot handle videos.If all you read is black & white novels then the better one would be e-Ink Nook. If you read electronic magazines or college text books with a lot of color graphs and charts or children’s’ books with a lot of pictures then the better would be Nook Color from Barnes & Noble. Nook Color is a hybrid Android eReader/tablet and has USB port (unlike iPad). It has a new generation screen which is anti-glare coated and is better performing in sunlight and for reducing eye strain than iPad’s. The screen is one of the best and sharpest on the market and it’s viewable at wide angles.Nook Color has several apps that already come with the device (Pandora Internet radio, QuickOffice, etc.) Also, Barnes & Noble recently released Nook SDK and Nook Developer platform that will allow most of the existing 100,000 Android apps be ported to it. Also, you can use the Social Settings screen to link your NOOK Color to your Facebook account and your Twitter account. You can also import all your contacts from your Google Gmail account. Once you have linked to Facebook and Twitter and set up email contacts, you can lend and borrow books, recommend books, and share favorite quotes with your friends.

Is the Kindle Fire worth buying.

Can I use a blackberry USB to transport files from my pc to the Kindle?How do I get my music on there?Are there any good apps?I would love to buy it but I’m not sure if its worth it or if it works well. Anyone who has it? I would get it on Amazon but someone told me to get it at best buy so i have…

To answer your questions as the other answered did not:As long as your Blackberry USB cord uses the same micro USB as the Kindle Fire. I know that my sister’s Blackberry Curve (the newest one) does.There are over 10,000 apps and counting on the Amazon App Store. My friends with Android devices use the Amazon App Store in addition to the Android Play Store Market. There are also a lot of free apps and lite versions. If you are tech savvy you should be able to root or sideload the Android Market to gain access to those apps. Amazon App Store also offers a free app a day which is where I got my favorite game app, Going Nuts!Amazon offers their own very reasonably priced mp3 store to buy music from. It puts them on the cloud for you to download when you want them. Using a USB cord to connect it to your computer you should be able to download music onto the device. You just won’t be able to store this (unless it’s from Amazon) on the Amazon Cloud.If you have Amazon Prime (or want to get it for $79 a year) you can stream free videos (which you can buy for the cost of a rental without Prime) get discounts on books and extra free books and a lending library. With the device you get a free month.Amazon does offer a year warranty on the device for a year. I purchased mine at Wal-Mart and got the two year accidental handling warranty as well for only $17! I haven’t had to use it yet, as the Gorilla Glass screen doesn’t scratch easily and I have taken care of the device. Also because I purchased it at Wal-Mart Amazon didn’t have my debit card or credit card on file so my device isn’t hooked to my card. If I make any purchases from Amazon though, it will be.The Kindle Fire doesn’t have a Micro SD card slot, which bothered me at first until I heard that Amazon offers you free, unlimited space now (it used to be only 5GB) on the Amazon Cloud. True, you have to have WiFi connection to download things from the cloud onto the device, but this works very well as most places I go and spend a lot of time at like, home and school, have WiFi.In closing, the Amazon Kindle Fire is a great device at a low price. Only $199, much cheaper than an Apple iPad. However it does not have a camera or a speaker. The Kindle Fire was never meant to create things, like the iPad. It was meant to entertain and consume material. It’s great for watching music videos, listening to music, reading books, magazines, graphic novels, and browsing the Web with its Amazon Silk browser which is very fast, but you won’t be writing any papers on it.Many Wal-Mart stores have a demo device which will allow you to play with it before buying it. You also have a month trial period if you buy it at Wal-Mart to decide if you like it, if not, you can return it.

Kindle Fire vs Nook Tablet.

So I want to get one of these really really bad. I wouldn’t really use it for the books to be honest. But I need lots of games like Doodle jump, oven break, angry birds, tiny wings, cut the rope etc… i also like lots of music. do either have a headphone outlet thing you plug headphones in? also, i need to be…

Both are excellent tablets, but content would drive you to the Kindle Fire. The Fire has the same apps, or more, than the Nook Tablet. But only the Kindle Fire has access to the Amazon Video & Music marketplace. Barnes and Noble don’t have anything like that yet, but will point out other sources like Hulu, Netflix, etc. Guess what, the Kindle Fire has those as well.If the music on your computer isn’t DRM protected, you can (as I did) easily transfer it over via the microUSB cable. I also found some free apps so you can download Youtube videos and watch them off-line.With the Kindle Fire, you get 1 free month of Amazon Prime ($79 per year afterwards, if you choose to continue). Prime gives you free 2-day shipping on all Amazon orders, one free book to borrow, and unlimited video streaming from the Prime Video Lending Library. That Library is very extensive.…Only the Kindle Fire has stereo speakers, though they are small. And yes, it has a headphone jack for more private listening.If you want to, you can root (jailbreak) the Kindle Fire, though I’ve found enough Android apps from other sources so I don’t feel the need to do that.

Anyone who owns and uses a Kindle Fire.

I am looking at them but have some questions it seems hard to get answered. How do I connect with the internet? Is it like a laptop? Do I have to pay a monthly fee? Any help you can gived I would sure appreciate.

Its a tablet which uses wifi like to connect to internet and has no monthly charges separate from what you are already paying for your dsl connection.Here I found some interesting FAQ’s on the kindle fire to help you out: than that the kindle fire is basically 7″ eReader tablet. Which can do all the stuff like:- You can watch movies- Stream Tv shows- Read over 1 million titles from amazon book store.- Over 17k android apps- Listen to songs- Play games- Read magazinesHere you would be able to find the price tag for the kindle fire:

Tablet advice – what to buy.

Ok, so I’m going to be starting college soon, and I have a few quiestions1. Tablets – do they come with free internet access? (wifi / 3G or whatever)2- what I need it for: as I said I’m gonna be out of the house a lot, I’m looking for something portable that isnt a laptop, where i can use…

Hello, and welcome to the wonderful world of tablets!If you want internet access with 3G, you will be able to get internet access anywhere you can get cell phone reception from the network (T-Mobile, Verizon, etc.). With this option however, you will need to pay a monthly fee which differs between providers. Wi-Fi is free, but it can only get you internet access in a Wi-Fi network. For example, your home has Wi-Fi probably, if so it’s what you used to get on the internet and post this question most likely. A typical college camp as has Wi-Fi.With tablets, your main options are Android and iOS. Both are excellent platforms that are very able to do the tasks you listed. iOS only comes with iPads, which are more expensive then the alternatives generally but still excellent pieces of hardware. Android runs on many different tablets, so you are sure to find one that fits your needs and budget. If Android and iOS don’t float your boat, there are alternatives such as Windows 8.You need to decide what size you want. The two main sizes are 10 inch and 7 inch. This generally refers to its screen size alone. 7 inch are more portable and better for some tasks like reading due to their size, while bigger tablets are better for movies and such because of their size as well. They are able to do the same things though, just some are better at certain tasks.With iOS your choices consist of the iPad, so I need not go further in recommending a device their, but for Android I recommend the Kindle Fire HD or the Nexus 7. Both are amazing tablets that can perform any of the tasks you listed just fine, and are both under $300.If I were you I’d take some time and go into your local electronics store. Try out the tablets there, and decide based on that. Good luck!

Kindle Fire: Mistake or a Steal.

I purchased a Kindle Fire for my wife for Xmas. Everywhere I look, the reviews are fairly positive. She isn’t looking for it to replace a laptop or anything. Mostly just to read books, listen to music, maybe surf the web, and play games. However I just read an article on MSN that the Kindle Fire may be an epic…

If you read the Amazon reviews, you’ll see that most of them are positive. Keep in mind that it was originally compared to the iPad, which isn’t exactly fair. Obviously it will suffer when compared to a more full-featured and expensive device. But the Kindle Fire, according to all reports, is fine for what it is.Just curious about the article you cite – are you sure you don’t mean the Nook? One of the first hits when I got while searching was about how the Kindle is a huge success and the Nook isn’t doing so well –…Edit – Thanks for the link. The article is interesting, but also contradicts a lot of what I’ve read on other sites. The key will probably be if and when Amazon actually releases sales figures.. Personally, I have the original iPad (which means I paid $800 for something that has no camera) and the Kindle 3, and this combo is best for me. The reason is because I’m into comic books, and the 10″ screen on the iPad is ideal for comics as well as being good for video. I also do reading in long spurts, hours at a time, and the LCD screen is hard on my eyes. This is why I prefer the basic e-ink Kindle – that and it’s light enough to hold in one hand so I can read while standing on the bus. Of course, this means that when I travel I have to plug my earbuds into my iPod to listen to music, read on the Kindle, and switch to the iPad for gaming. It can be awkward.The iPad is definitely the superior device, but it really sounds like your wife will be fine with the Fire. The next closest competitor is the Nook Tablet, which appears to be dead in the water. There are Android tablets, but I have a Xoom (yes, I’m a geek) and have been very unimpressed with Android in general, at least in the tablet arena. Basically, the iPad is the best there is, but it’s overkill for many people.

How does the nook or kindle work.

Can someone explain to me exactly how it works?Well, here’s my situation. I want to get a nook/kindle for my father-in-law. He likes to own the actual books, but I was thinking that the nook would be better for taking places since he also likes to keep his books in good condition. So what I’m wondering is…

Hi, Carissa, this is not confusing at all. Here’s all the answers you need.A lot of people – especially avid readers – are initially against eReaders but they become supporters as soon as they get the device and use it for a whilte. Regular books are great indeed but people that get an eReader generally read 3-4 times more books than before they got one thus that speaks for the devices (worth the money and useful.)You need to purchase a digital version of the book to have it on Nook or Kindle.There are many advantages of eReaders – for example, you can put MP3’s on them and listen while you read and they can hold thousands of books in digital format.Choosing the device, you should first decide which screen you want: e-Ink or LCD. It depends on what you’re reading. If just black & white novels then the better one would be Kindle or e-Ink Nook from Barnes & Noble. If you read electronic magazines or college text books with a lot of color graphs and charts or children’s’ books with a lot of pictures then the better would be Nook Color LCD from Barnes & Noble. Then, you should understand the limitations of e-Ink eReaders (such as Kindle) – they are limited to be black & white for now they “blink” at each ebook’s page turn, they’re not too good for web browsing, they need external light source for reading when dark, and they cannot handle videos.You can get Kindle 3G or Wi-Fi or Nook e-Ink (3G or Wi-Fi) or Nook Color Android tablet (Wi-Fi). 3G means the internet connection is included for free for the life of the device thus you can download a new book even when you’re walking on the street. Wi-Fi means that you need to have access to wireless hotspot – examples would be any Barnes & Noble store that provides free Wi-Fi to Nook’s or any Starbucks or any McDonalds or airport or any other place that provides free Wi-Fi service – to download eBooks. Again, it’s only needed to download eBooks or browse the Internet. Once you downloaded the eBooks to your device, you don’t need Internet connection to read them. There’s over a million of free public ebooks as well as over a million of ebooks that you need to pay for available through Barnes & Noble eBook store. Prices are generally much lower than for physical books.Whichever device you choose, here’s the advantages of the Nook’s (both e-Ink black & white and Nook Color) over Kindle:- Any Barnes & Noble store provides free Wi-Fi to Nook’s- Nook allows to lend books for 2 weeks to friends or to your other devices that run B&N app (PC, MAC, Android phones, Apple iPhone and iPad, etc.) Barnes & Noble allows (when you walk in with the Nook to B&N store) to read any available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi. With Nook, while in BN store you get exclusive articles from top authors, and great offers including cafe treats and unique deals.- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for library ebooks.- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for renting text-ebooks.Nook Color is worth mentioning separately as this is a hybrid Android eReader/tablet device, something between Kindle and iPad. Even though Nook Color has LCD touchscreen, it’s a new generation screen which is anti-glare coated and is better performing in sunlight and produces less glare all of which are dooming reading on iPad. Also, the screen is amazing and readable/viewable at wide angles.Overall, Nook Color is more than e-Reader as you can also watch video and use Android applications on it. It’s a hybrid device, much more than just an e-Reader but not a full tablet as it doesn’t have a camera. If all you want is to read novels, Kindle (or the original e-Ink Nook) might be better for you. If you want something more from your device (color charts and graphs of college text books, photos, children’s books, magazines and web sites in full color) at half of the price of iPad or Galaxy tab, then Nook Color is your best bet. at half of the price of iPad or Galaxy tab, then Nook Color is your best bet.

How to get audiobook to play while reading ebook(Kindle Fire).

I have both the audiobook and the ebook for a book on my Kindle fire and I want to have it play the audiobook while i am reading the ebook. It was doing this before but now I can’t find the option to play the audiobook. How do I do both at the same time? Please Help! Thank you!

You can only do that if you got the audiobook from Audble and the ebook from Amazon AND the Amazon sales page for the ebooks says it has “Whispersync for voice”.Also the original Kindle Fire (not HD) may not be able to do it – that is unclear.Here is the Amazon help page:…And here, skip down to the paragraph about Experience Immersion Reading…Wait and an Audible support person will pop up a chat to help you with Immersion reading.”Experience Immersion ReadingGot a Kindle Fire HD or an Android device? If so, you can also read and listen simultaneously with real-time highlighting.

  1. -You can watch movies from netflix and on demand movies from amazon.-The software is not a true android operating system. It is customized by Amazon even though it runs verision 2.31. RAM is greater than 1 GB.

  2. With either, the books you buy are yours to keep basically, but unlike a regular book, you cannot give or sell the e-book. You can lend one for a couple weeks though.

  3. Not if you want pyhsical copies and e-book copies, or e-book copies of books you already have, it is up to the publisher and/or author to offer a deal on both. Generally, they consider them separate copies, so sell them separately.

  4. Disadvantages:You might try deleting the ebook from the Kindle. Then, on the Kindle, find the book at Amazon. There should be an option saying something like Download and Play Now. Hopefully this will reset whatever caused the problem.

  5. Barnes & Noble’s one-year head start in developing software really shows: scrolling is smoother, the screen reorients itself faster and the device just generally feels zippier.[DELDUP()]

  6. Take a look at recently released Nook Tablet – it’s been getting rave reviews and it is the best device in it’s class – much better than Kindle Fire. Nook has Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Angry Brids, etc., the best battery life (30% better), the best non-glare laminated screen (visibly noticeable difference in side by side tests in video playback and EBooks reading), double the RAM and space for apps/photos/movies, microSD slot (not on Kindle) and a microphone for Skype (not on Kindle or Color), and much zippier performance during video playback and apps usage than choppy/laggy act of Kindle Fire according to many user reviews. Nook tablet is a bit lighter than Kindle Fire as well.

  7. -The Kindle Fire has only 8GB of memory. Not a lot. Amazon does give you 5GB of storage online called ecloud. It automatically stores your apps that you have, purchase, or any content that you dont have to store it on your device but to their ecloud servers.

  8. No sorry, the real proprietor is the single that stated it stolen, and (s)he’s the only one that could get it dealt with. yet what you’re able to do is get the police in touch to get the guy who bought it to you, to furnish you money returned, in case you have his homestead handle and real telephone selection, for merchandising you stolen products.

  9. 2. Internal memory greater than 16 GB (So you can store good deal of music)A tablet that meets your requirements can be found if you manage to spend some time on proper research. It is still an investment which needs to be taken with attention. Now, if you want a tablet that won’t let you down and respond well to daily needs, I suggest you invest in Asus MeMO ME172V-A1-GR. This 7.0 inch tablet is great for student needs.

  10. 4. Front and rear camera.Un Kindle es siempre muy útil porque es más fácil disfrutar de la lectura sin tener que llevar demasiado peso, en Amazon hay la mejor oferta de estos dispositivos fantásticos y al mejor precio como se puede ver en este link

  11. Bloomberg:The corner, truthfully. I won it for Christmas and my sister did extensive learn and comparing to the Kindle and different e-readers to come back to a variety which became into maximum suitable and chosen the corner for me. the E-ink is better to your eyes, for one. it is lighter and smaller, greater beautiful shape than kindle. All Nooks are touch exhibit screen, in contrast to a pair kindles. You get in-save help in any Barnes and Noble save yet kindle is predicated on line so needless to say you cant. and that i hear kindles have commercials (yet you could certainty verify that), which may well be fairly annoying to undergo on an identical time as examining. you apart from might have a 300 and sixty 5 days guarantee. Like i had a topic with my undemanding touch glow easy (this one facilitates you to ascertain on the hours of darkness) and that i became it in and have been given an entire new one for unfastened. there is likewise lending helpful properties so which you would be able to share your books and borrow from corner pals.

  12. * As for music files, you would have to upload your music files to their ecloud server and then download the Amazon music app player on your kindle fire tablet. Then when you are in a Wi-Fi area you can play all your songs anytime and in any order.So is it worth it. Definitely. $199 you can’t beat this price. If you want a better tablet, expect to pay more. Most people say the ipad is better which is definitely. The ipad is $499 while the Kindle Fire is only $199. The only thing I wish it would have is more memory and more buttons. It does everything I expect it to do for the price. You can buy the Kindle Fire at Best Buy store.

  13. -There is only a power button and a earphone jack hole. There are no other buttons. There is a volume control slider on screen but no physical volume button. There is no camera and no bluetooth.

  14. Mi Kindle que he comprado en Amazon esta excelente y estoy muy contenta de él, tanto que también he comprado uno para regalar, un excelente regalo por poco dinero, mi amiga esta fascinada con su nuevo dispositivo, pude leer en cualquier lugar, sin interrupciones y es como leer un libro de verdad pero sin papel y peso.

  15. -Has thousands of apps from Amazon online store. From games, software, texting, email, calendar etc. Amazon has a lot of apps (thousands) and content.

  16. -Not a true android tablet. You won’t be able to access any google app through the google marketplace. You can only access and get apps from the Amazon App store.Hello Traffik, according to almost 1200 people that left 1-2 star reviews on Amazon site for Kindle Fire it is not worth it. Dropping all 5-start reviews (from Amazon employees) and reading middle ground 3-start reviews you understand that it is a deeply flawed device. It is confirmed at this time that many Kindle Fire units have faulty Wi-Fi and people have a lot of issues connecting to internet according to many user reviews. Other issues are that it runs hot to touch, video playback is jerky, touch screen is not responsive and it takes 2-3 touches to register, power button placement is very poor and is prone to accidental power off, all the hype of Silk browser is a myth where the browsing is actually slower than on other Android tablets, etc. Also, when Fire is activated it allows for 1-Click shopping through the account connected to the device, and such behavior cannot be turned off. Additionally the device asks for no confirmation password before validating the purchase, which means that if anyone gets hold of the device, he can purchase things at will. It is confirmed that Prime movies can’t be downloaded, only streamed, making them impossible to watch without Wi-Fi on Kindle Fire. Also, on Fire when the Silk internet browser is pointed at the Android market, it reverts to the Amazon market with much more limited content.Here is a thought. How about getting a job and buying your own.

  17. * You can connect your Kindle Fire to your computer using a mini-HDMI to USB cable. Most cell phone use this cable. If you have this cable you can attach this cable to your Kindle Fire. Then you can transfer your files from your computer to your Kindle Fire tablet. Like movie files, documents, photos etc.It will not disappoint. Wish you best of luck!

  18. -When you first activate the Kindle Fire, you will be required to have a credit card on file on a Amazon Account. If you don’t have a credit card, you can use a debit card as well. This is a must.Lol. I don’t know what a nook is.

  19. We streamed Netflix side by side with the Kindle Fire, and head-to-head comparisons were very favorable to the Nook–it simply looked better. Both tablets have the same app, but the Nook Tablet’s picture looked more vivid and detailed. The Nook Tablet also has physical volume controls on the side, which come in handy–the Kindle Fire strangely lacks them. The screen, which is a higher-quality IPS display than the Kindle Fire, really shows off Netflix and Hulu Plus to amazing effect…
