If you’re Microsoft, this news falls squarely into the “wow, even they have one now?” category.

Amazon is set to announce its new Kindle tablet device at a press conference tomorrow.

The tablet, which is reportedly going to be called the “Kindle Fire” is reported to run a heavily modified version of Android and will retail for $250.

This price puts the tablet device right into the fray as a competitor to Apple and Android devices.

The Kindle Fire won’t be available to consumers until the second week of November, according to TechCrunch.

In recent days, Amazon has made several moves recently that suggest it will announce a Kindle tablet.

In August, the company started rolling out a new design for its website that was optimized for tablet viewing and the company launched its 14-day e-book sharing library lending feature.
