Look out Apple, because Amazon could be close to launching its rumored tablet to compete with the iPad. While Apple’s iPad continues to dominate the tablet market, with competition that is next to none, this Amazon-flavored tablet could become the first legitimate threat to Apple’s tablet. Amazon’s new tablet could be announced at the press conference the online retailing company has invited the media to attend on Wednesday, September 28 at 10:00 AM Eastern.
This tablet, which will allegedly run Android, will be effective at competing with the iPad because of its price tag. Amazon is rumored to price the 7-inch version of this tablet at just $249.99. If released, this will be Amazon’s first tablet and will join the Kindle family of eReaders that Amazon has been selling since late 2007.
