It seems like Windows 8 literally can’t come out fast enough.
A few weeks ago, the Google Nexus 7 tablet was out introduced to the market as a competitor to the Kindle Fire.
Now, the New York Times is publishing some very interesting news about Amazon and Apple.
Apparently, Amazon is working on a new version of the Kindle Fire, with a larger display, that could compete more directly with the iPad.
They could be moving up to the 10.1 inch space. Analysts also believe that Amazon is updating the Kindle Fire.
Apple is now rumored to be developing a new tablet with a 7.85-inch screen.
This version is likely to sell for significantly less than the latest $499 iPad, with its 9.7-inch display. Confidential sources say that the product is expected to be announced this year.
Where does Microsoft fit in?
Based on all the airplanes flying in crowded airspace, is there room for Microsoft tablets?
You have the Kindle, Kindle Fire, Google Nexus 7 and now Apple fighting for the 0 to $300 space.
From $300 to $500 will probably be a Google, Apple and now maybe Amazon battle.
It seems that Microsoft will be in the higher-than-$499 space but the real question is, will consumers care?
Will they be looking to go past all the choices we talked about and move to $600, $700 and above just to get a “Windows Tablet”?
What do you think?
