Rumours have been circulating throughout the Summer of Amazons rival tablet device which may be coming to market in October. Amazon have been tight-lipped on the ‘iPad killer’ which is set to bring tablet devices to the mainstream using the Android operating system.

It is reported that Amazon would sell the new tablet at a loss in an attempt to reap its profits through the ‘Amazon App Store’ and other paid digital content such as music, books and videos.

With the tablet price more attractive than the competition and Amazon having a customer base of 200 million users, the Amazon tablet could be the number 1 stocking filler for Christmas 2011 and eventually hold the market share for Android tablets.
