While the dual-SIM Galaxy Music Duos (GT-S6012) is now listed on the Samsung online store, strangely, as of filing this report, the single-SIM Samsung Galaxy Music is not listed yet. The Galaxy Music Duos is listed as “Not In Stock” for both Blue and White options, so while customers get an idea about the price, Samsung isn’t taking orders for the smartphone yet.

Amazon launches Kindle content service for kids!!

Amazon is launching a subscription service for children’s games, videos and books aimed at getting more kids to use its Kindle Fire tablet devices.

Amazon.com Inc. plans to announce Wednesday that the Kindle FreeTime Unlimited service will be available in the next few weeks as part of an automatic software update.

Amazon said subscribers will have access to “thousands” of pieces of content, though the company did not give a specific number. Kids will be able to watch, play and read any of the content available to them as many times as they want. Parents can set time limits, however.

The service, aimed at kids aged 3 to 8, will cost $4.99 per month for one child. It’ll cost $2.99 per child for members of Amazon Prime, the company’s premium shipping service. Amazon Prime costs $79 per year for free shipping of merchandise purchased in the company’s online store.

Family plans for up to six kids will cost $9.99 per month and $6.99 for Prime members.

The Kindle already allows for parental controls through its FreeTime service. Parents can set up profiles for up to six children and add time limits to control how long kids can spend reading, watching videos or using the Kindle altogether. With the content subscription service, kids can browse age-appropriate videos, games and books and pick what they want to see. They won’t be shown ads and will be prevented from accessing the Web or social media. Kids also won’t be able to make payments within applications.

Amazon is launching the service as competition heats up in the tablet market among Apple, Barnes & Noble, Microsoft and Samsung. Amazon’s strategy is to offer the Kindle at a relatively low price and make money selling the content.Offering a subscription service aimed at kids helps set the Kindle apart from its many competitors.

“We hope that our devices are really, really attractive for families,” said Peter Larsen, vice president of Amazon’s Kindle business.

Galaxy one more time: Samsung Galaxy S IV rumored for an April 2013 unveiling !!

The Galaxy S III just launched a mere six months or so ago, but rumors are already rife about the next S phone from Samsung, the Galaxy S IV. Codenamed “Project J”, it is rumored that the Korean giant may be releasing the phone something April 2013.

First popping up in a benchmark as the GT-I9400 (GSIII was GT-I9300 and GS2 was GT-I9100), the rumoured specs on the Galaxy S IV seem to be quite astounding. It will pack a 5-inch 1080p screen, along with 2GB of RAM and a 13 megapixel rear camera. No word on what processor or GPU it will run, but it could be the current Exynos chip found in the SIII, or a completely new SoC. Earlier, there were reports that Samsung was going to showcase an 8-core ARM based SoC, as part of ARM’s big.litle chip. It is possible that this is the same chip we might find inside the next Galaxy phone.

Samsung Galaxy S IV rumoured for an April 2013 unveiling

Speaking of things to come, there is also the idea floating around that a Note II-mini might be on the way. It will follow the same design principles that the Galaxy S III Mini did. Essentially, if it does become a reality, the Note II mini will come with a lower end AMOLED screen, along with removing the S-Pen functionality. If Samsung does come out with a Note II-Mini it would not make any sense to do away with the stylus as the Note II’s versatility is maximized thanks to the S-Pen and without it, the use of the device becomes cumbersome.

Whether the Galaxy S IV and the Note II Mini are realities or not is something we hope to find out at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in 2013, but given how Samsung hosted its own event for the Galaxy S III launch, there is the distinct possibility that the two new devices will get the same treatment. Bottomline, only time will tell.

Apple iTunes Debuts In India, Songs From Rs. 7!!

Apple has finally opened the gates of iTunes Store to India. Apple customers in the India can now download, stream or store legal music and video content available in the digital store.

Songs can be bought individually for price ranging from 7 to 15 or can buy as a complete album, starting from 70. The store also offers ability to buy or rent the movies which comes in High Definition and standard version. HD versions of some latest bollywood flicks are available for purchase from 450, while renting the same will cost around 120. The iTunes Store will offer over 20 million songs including international tracks.

Apple has also included Indonesia into the list of iTunes Stores. Even though the company has launched its digital store in many parts of Asia in June, India and Indonesia were left out till now. The company will also offer ‘iTunes Match’ which allows users to store music purchased from sources other than iTunes in Apple’s icloud.

The Cupertino tech giant, which recently started more focusing towards India with its products and services, will face competition in the latest segment from Nokia’s Music Store and Flyte, the digital store from Flipkart.

According to a 2012 report on Media and Entertainment Industry, the Indian music industry achieved a 19% year-on-year decline in sales of physical music which was compensated by a significant jump of 24% year-on-year in digital music consumed last year. The country also has high levels of content piracy.
