Amazon has a history of selling brand-new gadgets at a loss, but this takes it to the next level. Amazon just announced a bevy of new tablets, and one of them is priced so low you won't believe it. And that's before Amazon's inevitable discounts and promotions.
We're skeptical that Amazon's new Fire Tablet will take off like its staple Kindle gear, but who knows, anything is possible.
The Fire Tablets have a 7-inch screen, high definition screen resolution and the capability to read eBooks, snap pictures with both front and rear facing cameras, listen to tunes, browse the Internet and whatever else you might do on any other tablet. The main difference that sets this Fire Tablet apart from others on the market is the cost.
This Amazon Fire Tablet will only set you back a measly $50 as compared to the iPad Pro that was just announced last week and will run $799 for the lowest available model. However, the iPad has almost three times the storage capability. If you're only using the tablet for light use, you'll save a small fortune with the Fire.
The Fire Tablet will be available September 30, along with Amazon's other new tablets, just in time for the holiday season. We want to know if a $50 tablet is something that you would purchase. Is the Fire Tablet a great deal or are you worried the drastically lowered cost means you'll have to sacrifice quality?
