Heads up: Amazon said to be readying $50 6-inch tablet for holidays
After trying to win over consumers with pricier tablets, Amazon is said to be working on a slate for the more budget-conscious.
The Internet retail giant is planning to introduce a $50 tablet with a 6-inch screen in time for the holiday shopping season, the Wall Street Journal reports. At half the price of Amazon's current 6-inch HD Fire tablet, the new slate would be one of the least expensive tablets on the market.
The tablet would be the first of a collection Amazon is planning to release this year that would include a 8- and 10-inch screens, the latter of which would be larger than Amazon's current HDX 8.9 tablet, the Journal reports.
