I've gotta love Amazon for being determined to go out there and rumble in the marketplace. Now they're unveiling a tablet--the Kindle Fire--which will do pretty much everything the iPad does, for just $199. They're actually going to sell it at a loss, counting on sales of books/music/movies/general merchandise. I can see this working out for them.
Also--they'll be unveiling a $79 Kindle. Have I mentioned libraries have started loaning Kindle-formatted ebooks now?
And you know, this could be just in time, because my poor Sony Reader's battery just doesn't last anymore.
Romance is sexy!
