Bezos had a lot of interesting things to say, one of which was this:
Amazon has now made the best tablet in the world--at any price.
And what tablet is that?
The Kindle Fire HD with the 8.9 inch screen--the one that comes with high-speed LTE wireless.
Specifically, in response to a question about what message he wanted people to take away from his Kindle presentation last week, Bezos said:
...we have the best tablet at any price. Last year, we wanted to build the best tablet at a certain price. And, this year, we wanted to build the best tablet at any price. Take away the price and it’s still the best tablet. It also happens to be only $499.
It will be interesting to see what sort of outcry Bezos's statement about the Kindle Fire HD being the best tablet in the world provokes from the Apple community. They're pretty pleased with their iPad.
