Default 5 Reasons Why Amazon Can Compete in The Tablet Market

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.tomsguide.com/us/amazon-kindle-android-tablet-ipad-rival-tablet-wars,news-11501.html' target='_blank'>http://www.tomsguide.com/us/amazon-...news-11501.html</a><br /><br /></div><p>"<em>It seems fairly reasonable </em><em>to bet that Amazon will introduce an Android tablet in the foreseeable time. It makes perfect sense and it is not difficult to predict that Amazon where succeed where Samsung and Motorola have failed</em>. <em>Hope and disappointment in Android tablets is a repetitive cycle these days. There is this huge anticipation building up that there will finally be an iPad rival.</em>"</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1308851948.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Even though Amazon has yet to release an Android based tablet, this makes perfectly good sense. Why? Developers can now develop and port apps. Amazon has sold millions of Kindles so in order to compete against an Apple iPad the specifications and price will probably have to competitive. Amazon seems to have built their loyal fan base so the Android operating system (O/S) will take them to the next level, something akin to the Barnes and Noble Nook.</p><p>If Amazon releases the Kindle on the Android O/S, you can count on the display being an excellent one. The other area is the User Interface (UI) that will most likely stay simple, again akin to the Nook. What will be interesting if Amazon will add ports and storage e.g. USB, VGA, Disk Drive/SSD, etc.? This will make for an interesting tablet, great display, easy UI, ports and competitive pricing. If Amazon moves to the Android O/S, the tablet market will continue to heat up.</p>
