Ok, so what does everyone think of the Kindle Fire? Is it an iPad killer? Is it step one in a strong strategic plan by Amazon? Or is it just another ho-hum entry in the tablet wars?
My take is that it looks like it has the potential to be the first serious competition to the Apple ecosystem. Tablet makers up until now, have just been hardware vendors. Amazon is different. They are a retail/content company. The can afford to sell hardware at cost or a loss. And they have the infrastructure and library to give people content from day one, something Android tablets have struggled with.
Not sure I see much adaptation in the Enterprise based on this announcement, though. Corporate tablets seems to be a fairly wide open space in which I wouldn’t even rule out Microsoft.
What do you think?
