(Wed02) Amazon announces details of its new Kindle model. Bottom line: $199, 7-inch color display, no 3G, no camera, no microphone, Android OS. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-09-28/amazon-unveils-199-kindle-fire-tablet.html
At half the price of an iPad and with more books to choose from, it's a very attractive alternative to an iPad.
But forget the Kindle vs iPad, Amazon vs Apple discussion. What makes this new version and the reduction of prices of the other Kindles so interesting is that they are another nail in coffin of legacy (ie, paper) publishers.
What would you buy an iPad or Kindle these days?
