Amazon transforms Kindle reader into an iPad killer
Last week MG Siegler, a member of the famous TechCrunch blog, reported that he had seen the prototype with his own eyes. According to Siegler, Amazon opted to use the power of its popular pocketbook brand.
Kindle pocketbooks have become an industry standard. Amazon hopes to repeat this success on the tablet market with a 7-inch touch screen running Google’s Android operating system. The Kindle tablet will hit the market in November.
It will be significantly cheaper than iPad, Siegler claims. His sources confirmed that Kindle tablet will cost only around $250.
The bad news for Ukraine? As usual, we won’t see official tablet sales here. If you want one soon and at an affordable price, buy it abroad.
