Kindle Tablet: $200 - Great For Users, Ouch For Competitors
The new Kindle tablet will go on sale on November 15th for $199. This is going to be an awesome device for consumers.
Quick thoughts: This is going to hurt a lot of tablet makers. Now, no one thought this was going to cost $200. $250 To $300 but not $200. It's going to kill off a lot of tablet makers.
Second, the final battle between Amazon and Apple won't happen until Amazon unveils its 10" tablet. I wonder if Amazon will price that down to $250.
Here's a video Amazon released for the Kindle Silk.
