There are many bets placed for Amazon’s Android tablet device. The strange thing about this tablet is that, the tablet has not even been announced and still there are so many assumptions about the tablet.
There are many research firms such as Forrester that are already betting on the success of future tablet by Amazon. According to Sarah Rotman Epps, who is the author of the report, “If it’s launched at the right price with enough supply, we see Amazon’s tablet easily selling 3 million to 5 million units in Q4 alone, disrupting not only Apple’s product strategy but other tablet manufacturers’ as well.”
The much talked about tablet from Amazon is rumoured to be launched in October this year. According to Epps, this could even kick start app development for such devices in a full high speed mode. As far as the current figure goes, less than 500 apps are available in the Android market which are fully optimized for Android tablets. If this is compared by iPad, we find that more than 100,000 apps have been built fully optimized for the iPad.
According to Forrester, if Amazon releases a tablet which is close to 9-inch LCD touchscreen which could be priced around US $299, it could outperform any tablet available in the market including Apple iPad. Amazon will only need to ensure one thing that is to meet the huge production demands of the user.
One thing that is good about Amazon and would help Amazon to produce such low priced tablets is that that, like Kindleereader, the company could sell services and goods on the device and make profits from it. Apart from it, the lion’s share of Apple’s revenue comes from the sales of iPad itself. So there is no way, the company could fall out of revenue. The whole of the world, including us, are waiting for the new tablet from Amazon.
