Amazon’s New Tablet Set To Take a Bite Out of Apple?

Filed under: Frank Remarks — Frank Fiore @ 1:02 PM

Word has it that Amazon is coming out with their own tablet computer and —- it’s price point is $250.00!

Amazon.com is expected to reveal its entry in the volcanic tablet computer market on Wednesday, a $250 gizmo analysts say could be the first real threat to the iPad’s market domination. And even Apple appears to be getting worried.

Amazon is tight lipped about the gadget, refusing even to fess up to its existence. But the wait is almost over.

“Wednesday is tablet day,” BGC partners analyst Colin Gillis told Reuters.

That’s great news for CyberKill 3.0 that will be benefiting greatly from the tablet revolution.

In much the same way Amazon’s Kindle e-reader was priced low to quickly get traction among readers the company is likely to keep the price of its tablet low to attract users and sell other content and services, one analyst told Reuters.

And here’s the good news.

It will run Google’s Android software. If so, CyberKill 3.0 should run on the Amazon tablet and with the prices point for the tablet so low, Amazon’s entry into the tablet market will only add to the Perfect Storm of the next phase in mobile publishing.
