Re: Amazon a tablet leader
@todder. I have two aunts who have kindle tablets.  They really like them.  Such tablets are easy for them to understand and use the applications they need.  I think for some groups such tablets really work for them.  I think the variety of tablets available today makes this a great time in being a tablet user.

Re: Amazon a tablet leader
I bought my wife a Fire HDX a few years back. It has replaced her laptop, and runs office apps, etc. She has a keyboard, and some other utilities in a very effecient form factor. We have some iPads laying around the house, the obvious Windows desktop, and a variety of laptops running various Linux distros (Ubuntu, Mint) and based on my wife's ranking it flows like this
  1. Kindle
  2. Linux
  3. Windows
  4. Apple.

Amazon is doing just fine and their offerings provide splendid value.

Amazon is competing on too many fronts
Amazon wants in on the consumer tablet and phone markets, but how do you compete on design and features with the companies specializing in nothing but tablets and phones, such as Samsung, Apple and HDC? Amazon has considerable resources, but even it is not in a position to compete on all fronts.

Amazon a tablet leader
I think Amazon wants to compete with all of its force with Apple. It will be interesting to know what tablet will be on top after the holidays.  Amazon is really providing a lot of tablets each with their own features which really fit the need of diverse audiences.
