    I think that was simply a function of the price drop sell off. You can't really say it was competition for the iPad.

    Yeah I said the touchpad did well sarcastically! Shame though, webos is a decent os.

    Apple won't have any decent rivals for a long time yet!

    I would like to see Amazon's offering as they are projecting shipments of 5 million in the 4th quarter......

    Do you know how many Kindles they sold last year? 8m.

    They project 17m Kindles this year, in part because they plan to drop the price to $99 for Christmas sales for the entry level model.

    I would think that any Amazon tablet would steal market share from high end Kindle sales in the quarter, rather than open up new markets to them.

    The top priced Kindle sells for $379 today...

    I think the ipad's edge will be the appstore. I mean it has the largest and most reliable source of applications. Unless other tablets has a wide range of appstore, they can rival the ipad.

    Ultimately we will see what the sales numbers show, but I'm betting that these sales cannibalize Kindle sales first and foremost. Amazon is still seen as a book seller by a huge segment of the market, and not a computing hardware supplier.

    Amazon is one of the top e-commerce sites in the world because it sells everything under the sun. The impression you describe is an outdated one, and I doubt that anyone who's an Amazon customer clings to that.
