They sure did announce some at IFA, like this one in 2006: http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsungs-SGH-i600-smartphone-with-WiFi-and-HSDPA_id1530 I get it, people love to hate on Samsung for EVERYTHING, but...

The AI article doesn't mention it, but a paid subscription to Kindle Unlimited includes a three-month subscription to Audible.
There's no way I'd give my kid a $500 Air or $400 Retina Mini for himself -- that's how you raise entitled brats. My kid has a $70, refurbished Kindle Fire HD. He can get a $500 tablet when he pays for it himself
