Amazon is rectifying the long wait for a Kindle for Android update today with a version 4.0 refresh that carries with it a major UI redesign. The library view looks very different: instead of a basic grid, recently read items are presented in a rotating carousel at the top of the home screen, while the navigation panel has been expanded to provide quicker access to books, documents and periodicals. The actual reading pane remains untouched, so whether you’re using a smartphone or a tablet, your e-copy of War and Peace should still look the same. To have a peek at Kindle’s new look, Android users can go ahead and download it from the source.

A make over back at mobile trends for 2012 from Millennial Media reveals some significant gains for Samsung in certain, which has actually usurped the beleaguered HTC in terms of general share of Android devices accessing applications utilizing Millennial ’ s mobile ad platform. Samsung held 23 percent of impressions total among Android gadgets in Q3 2011, but 46 percent in Q3 2012. HTC was the leading member at the same time last year, but now it tracks Samsung by 30 portion points and sits in 2nd location. The development of Samsung reflects
the success of its Galaxy S III, and also the Galaxy Note, both of which were sturdy performers in the smartphone market in 2012.

Now ZTE has responded, saying it is “let down” with the conclusions reached in the report, and contacting the examination to widen its scope to include every company that makes telecom equipment in China– including companies from the US.

In the statement, ZTE refers to itself as “China’s most transparent” publicly-traded telecommunications company, with David Dai Shu– the company’s director of international public affairs– mentioning that no certain instances of wrongdoing by ZTE were ever before found. “It is …

While Twitter has had expanded tweets for photos and videos, it’s been necessary to click through to full news articles to see any of their content, sometimes even for the headline. A newly-launched update to the desktop and mobile web versions of Twitter is making that at-a-glance reading easier. Major traditional outlets like the New York Times, Der Spiegel or Time now show a brief snippet of an article when the linking tweet is given a click. More Internet-focused sources such as BuzzFeed and TMZ are also in the batch, and videos from the likes of BET and Dailymotion will play in-line. Android and iPhone users will see the same expansion from their native apps in the near future, although we’re already weeping quietly for attention spans everywhere.

Google has started testing a new search results area that will give detailed information on a particular subject alongside regular results. Search Engine Land (SEL) reports that the new area, situated to the right of the traditional results, will list encyclopedic stubs on actors, musicians, movies, famous people, tv shows, books, and also pull in Google+ information from your circles. SEL first noticed that Google was testing a “Sources” box last November, but as well as dropping the name, the idea seems to have developed a little since then. The site hypothesizes that the new area is part of Google’s search refresh that The Wall Street Journal reported on back in March.
As you can see from the image above, searching for the TV show…

Now, AT&T has set forth on a journey to give its push-to-talk services a modern makeover, and it’s recruiting a few partners to join the quest. In addition to providing PTT-enabled smartphones, the carrier will be testing IP-based technologies that offer workflow automation for tasks such as fleet management and dispatch. Additionally, the system will also offer integration with traditional radio systems such as PMR and LMR, which means an organization won’t need to transition its entire crew at once.
