The Kindle Fire HDX 7 began shipping back in mid-October and as of today, the 8.9-inch model is shipping. That said, given these had been previously announced and available for pre-order, the details may sound familiar for some.
officially announced that mobile devices would soon be available for use in "all phases of flight."

big rumor hit the web regarding the folks from Amazon finally releasing a Kindle smartphone. The idea behind Amazon making a smartphone wasn't new, but the part about it being free off-contract certainly was a biggie.
