According to the New York Post, when Amazon releases its tablet in the next few months, they’re not just going to be cost competitive. They’re going to be cost kamikaze.
The Posts’s source said that the Amazon tablet will cost “hundreds” less than the iPad — whose cheapest model weighs in at $US500/$A579 — currently does. A $US300 (or lower!) price point isn’t necessarily unheard of; Vizio’s 8-incher can be had for $US330. But it’s definitely aggressive, especially for a (reportedly) 9-inch Android tablet made by a company that actually cranks out solid hardware? That’d be pretty special. [NYP]
