Tom's Guide reports that Amazon is planning on releasing their own Android tablet to compete with Barnes and Noble's Nook Color.
They say that " the Amazon tablet is likely to be considerably more expensive and hit the $500 mark for a Wi-Fi only version".
So I'm a Apple fanboy, but why would anyone choose it (even though I have no idea what the Amazon tablet specs will be) over an iPad if it costs the same? And why would those who are deciding between the Nook color ($249 MSRP and that can be rooted aka jailbroken, to get android apps) and this choose something that costs twice as much?
I have stayed away from the iPad since I have an iPhone, a MacBook, and soon (!!) a MacBook Air, but recently, I've begun considering the Nook color to assist with my rediscovered fascination with Spider-Man comics. Have not yet pulled the trigger on it as a comic book reader, but it IS on the radar. I would prefer an Amazon product to BN, but not for twice the price.
A more in depth review will/may follow in the next few days.
