All signs point to Apple having another competitor in the tablet market. This competitor is none other than Amazon – Apple’s only true competitor in the digital music arena. According to the WSJ, “Amazon plans to release a tablet computer by October” running on Google’s Android operating system. Also the report states that the tablet will have 9 inches in screen size.
We’ve all heard the rumors on Apple possibly releasing their next iPad around October or near the Christmas holiday. The question we’ll soon find out is whether or not Amazon is able to lure customers from the iPad line to their tablet. We’ve seen many in the form of Motorola, HTC, Samsung, and RIM try to combat Apple with no real success. Just maybe it will be different with Amazon, since they do have a lot of tools we use daily.
So what do you think? Will Amazon finally challenge Apple in the tablet market? Hit up the comments and let us know what you think, and if you are considering the Amazon tablet as your next tablet device!
