Amazon's Android-powered tablet to be priced competitively, at $250?

Amazon's upcoming Google Android-powered 7-inch tablet is reportedly called "Amazon Kindle," but differs from the other Kindles. The new Kindle is due for launch in November and at a very eye-opening price of just $250. Amazon's competitive price mixed with their large range of content could push the Kindle into the race against already established tablets like the iPad and GALAXY Tab.




Amazon are using an older Android 2.2 OS but have built things on top of it of course and have deeply integrated their services into the new tablet with a Kindle app for reading books, Amazon's Cloud Player for music, Amazon's Instant Video player for watching movies and Amazon's Android Appstore. The Kindle reportedly only has a single-core chip and 6GB of internal storage and the initial Kindel will be WiFi-only.


The biggest news is of course, the price. At $250 it is super competitive and should gain a fair amount of sales on price alone.
