No tablet computer has so far succeeded in giving a tough fight to Apple’s iPad. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab showed some strength but it failed event to make debut in some regions, including Australia, due to patent disputes with Apple.
Now online retailer Amazon is readying its own tablet to challenge Apple’s iPad. MG Siegler, of TechCrunch, recently claimed that he had an opportunity to play with Amazon’s upcoming tablet. However, he decided to describe its capabilities rather than publishing its photos.
According to MG Siegler, Amazon’s upcoming tablet runs on Google’s Android operating system, and has a custom Android interface equipped with a tabbed Android Webkit browser plus a dock for showing available movies and books.
The potential tablet is said to have a 7-inch display and 6GB of internal storage.
In addition, it offers an Android apps storefront along with a complete collection of multimedia offerings that could allow it to challenge Apple’s popular iTunes and App Store.
Amazon’s sizeable marketing muscle is also expected to help it making its potential tablet trendy.
The last but not the least, at $250 Amazon’s potential tablet will be much cheaper than the iPad and other rival tablets.
