By any measure, the Amazon Kindle has been a big hit;
analysts estimate the company has sold more than 18 million of the monochromatic e-book readers since its November 2007 debut.
Still, that success pales in contrast to its most colorful competitor:
Apple has sold around 29 million iPads since just April 2010, and may sell 75% of all tablet computers purchased this year.
Today, Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos hopes to change that.
This morning, he introduced four new Kindles, slashing prices to an entry level of just $79. He also debuted a brand new Amazon tablet, the Kindle Fire. It sells for $199, compared with $499 for an iPad.
So, Kindle Fire… what do you get?” 18 million songs, movies, TV… 14.6 ounces, dual core processor, multi-touch 7″ display, free cloud storage, Amazon Silk web broweser, Whispersync…
AND RIGHT HERE, ONE WILL BE GIVEN AWAY. DETAILS TO SOON FOLLOW. IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED.
