Amazon Tablet to Launch in Fall

New Apple CEO Tim Cook may have to deal with a big threat to the iPad this fall: Amazon is going to launch its much-anticipated tablet in late September or October, according to the New York Post, and the device will sell for “hundreds less” than the iPad. The Amazon device, which will run on a customized version of Google’s Android operating system, is considered a real threat to the iPad, because Amazon, if it follows the same plan it did with the Kindle, will be willing to sell the electronic devices at a loss in order to boost sales of digital media. BGR says Amazon is working on both entry-level and high-end models and that the company will reveal them in the coming weeks.
