We have a couple of news stories from the world of mobile that should definitely keep you going, even on a slow news Saturday. Today, we have the launch of the first Amazon Kindle premium app in the form of EA Hasbro’s Scrabble along with the Verizon CEO confirming rumors of the company moving to tiered data plans.
The Kindle received its first few games a couple of weeks ago, but those happened to be free as sort of a testament and tech demo for what you could do with the Kindle, and not so much a way to make money off of it. Now, EA Mobile has released the first Premium App for the Kindle in the form of Scrabble.
For just $4.99, you can grab the Scrabble game, which seems like a perfect fit on the device, for your second and third generation Kindle as well as both models of the Kindle DX. Sitting at number four on the best selling charts, Scrabble appears to be doing quite well in sales so far.
Scrabble for Kindle is available for just $4.99 on Amazon.
It appears that the days of unlimited mobile data are getting even more numbered, as Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg has confirmed rumors of Verizon Wireless changing to tiered data plans. While Seidenberg said the plans will be vastly different than AT&T’s current plans because they “value data differently to the competition,” the move was likely based off of it.
No specifics are known about the changeover, or when it happens but my gut feeling says it will happen before January. (Think iPhone).
