Amazon's new Kindle--a possible iPad killer?
It seems that everyone is getting into the tablet market, and it also seems like there is always a new kid on the block being touted as the next iPad killer. I haven’t seen any news stating that Amazon is actually stating this, but the press seems to be doing it themselves.
Here’s the scoop on the new tablet that Amazon is going to announce this Wednesday, 28 Sep 2011:
- 7″ display
- Android operating system
- Color multi-touch screen
- costs around $250
- will also be called a Kindle
The press, in general, seems to indicate that this could impact the iPad’s market share because of Amazon’s market reach and cloud-based services. It think it is possible if this new Kindle will have a higher hardware specification than its competitor–the Barnes and Noble Nook Color. If it doesn’t, then it will simply be a Nook Color competitor, and thus will not upstage the iPad in any way.
That’s just my take on this.What do you think?
