Amazon Tablet will Target iPad and Cost MUCH Less
Imagine having a tablet that is supported by Amazon’s infrastructure and only costing $99.
The HP TouchPad fire-sale proved what dropping a few hundred quid can do for device sales and Amazon is said to have a history of selling hardware at a loss in order to boost downloads on devices such as the Kindle.
Other tasty tidbits include that the Amazon Tablet will be thin and be plugged into the social side of things seeing as Amazon has registered the urls kindleair.com, kindlescribe.com, and kindlesocialnetwork.com.
One of the most persistent rumours is that the Kindle Scribe and/or Air will make an appearance in October – leaving plenty of time for it to be added to Christmas lists 😉
Yeah, about that and/or scenario. Some folks are saying that there could be up to three new Amazon devices: A colour Kindle running Android to taunt the Nook has been mentioned as well as the full-size Android tablet that’ll compete directly with the iPad – there’s also murmurs about a refreshed standard Kindle.
Screen sizes have varied between 7- and 9-inches and whispers of a dual-core Tegra 2 processor or a quad-core Nvidia Kal-El engine under the hood.
What do you reckon?
