Yeah, the idea is intriguing, but 15 seconds during peak times?! C'mon, that's just not realistic.

If they had the HDX six weeks ago, I would have purchased it. Instead I purchased a Google Nexus 7 and I have been quite happy with it. It is good to see them upping their game a bit.

I'll be interested to see if Amazon can dispense help efficiently at scale. I suspect response times may get longer than 15 seconds over the holidays.

My mom would like the Mayday button. And by "my mom" I mean me.

Another Android tablet also launching this week with some great features is the new Ramos i-8($199) -- which is the worldG«÷s thinnest 8-inch tablet -- offering a 7.9-inch HD-screen and aluminum-nickel frame for a sleek design... and similar in size to the mini iPad and easy to carry... almost as compact as a 7" tablet, such as the new Kindle Fire, but with 40% more screen space -- which makes a significant difference in viewing tablet content (a key reason the iPad mini is 8")-- the new Ramos i-8 also matches most features of the Nexus 7 G«Ű plus MicroSD storage...

This new Android model also offers one of IntelG«÷s newest processors with solid performance for a mid-range device. Ramos Technology has partnered with Intel to introduce the i-Series with 8", 9", 10" and 12" models ($199-$299) -- and all feature HD displays along with a processor with Hyper-Threading technology, which runs four threads simultaneously and outscores many mainstream quad-core tablets in benchmark testing --
