It's a BlackBerry Playbook with Amazon juice, and a pretty solid color touchscreen Android tablet for $199. They can leverage their extensive content offerings and cloud storage to create what's probably the best non-iPad tablet out there, right out of the gate.

The 'Silk' browser is a pretty cool differentiator, for sure. They'll sell a ton of 'em. But I actually am more excited by what this new 'top of the line' device did to the rest of the Kindle family. You can now get a basic e-ink Kindle for $79, or a Kindle Touch for $99 ($149 with 3G). Remember the first, ugly, klunky Kindle sold for $399!
