Tech Today: Amazon's Apple iPad rival to arrive in August?

The first Google Chromebook will arrive in the UK on Friday, the Big G opens a gaming division, Apple could love Appstore trademark bid, Amazon set to launch iPad rival this summer and Zelda HD is coming to the Wii U. It's a bumper crop of tech news from after you logged-off.

Apple set to lose App Store trademark case
Amazon will 'probably' get to keep the Appstore name for its Amazon app shop with Apple so-far failing to convince a judge in California that usage of the term confuses customers. Unless Apple can provide evidence, the case will be thrown out and the Amazon Android Appstore will remain named as such.

KIndle tablet to arrive in August?
Meanwhile, another Amazon bid to get under Apple's skin might be just a couple of months away. Reports on Wednesday night claimed that the Kindle tablet is set to arrive at the end of August or the beginning of September. Can it rival the iPad?
