Because we do spreadsheets on the move. Because we simply need numpad. Because we didn’t buy a Surface. Microsoft has launched a new keyboard on Android, expressly made for Excel, with the main keyboard being truncated to make space for an unassumingly simple number pad, although there’s no pluses or minuses.

For the few of you that don’t regularly check the Kindle Fire product page on Amazon for changes, we’ve got a little update for you. Firefly, the visual search-slash-shopping tool that uses your camera to identify, and mostly purchase items, is coming to more tablets.

While you do, you might want to start shortlisting friends with solid game collections for you to test it out on. Filed under: Tablets, Amazon Via: GigaOm Source: Android Police
