According to a story in the New York Post today, Amazon will be launching its Android tablet in either late September or early October, and it will go on sale for â€œhundreds lessâ€ than the iPadâ€™s cheapest version, which currently retails for $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi-only version. The New York Post says that its information on the Amazon tablet comes from a source with knowledge of Amazonâ€™s plans. The source also says that by managing to make a tablet that comes in as a lot cheaper than the iPad, it has already succeeded where so many other tablet makers have failed before it has even gone on sale.
Meanwhile, the Post reports that lower-priced Android tablets are the key to Android chipping away at Appleâ€™s dominant iPad.
So, should Apple be unduly concerned about an Amazon tablet, possibly one bearing the Kindle brand name?
