Amazon.com (AMZN) is planning to launch a new advertisement-supported tablet device that will be priced lower than comparable models, according to a published media report.
What I need is an ad free tablet … Ubuntu … I will pay for the quality hardware, to get what I want. Not some handy way to spend more money I don’t have…
On Thursday, Amazon plans to hold a media event in Santa Monica, Calif. where the e-commerce giant is expected to unveil a new version of its Kindle Fire tablet, which competes with Apple’s iPads, the report said. And their wall garden???
This past Thursday, Amazon said it had sold out of its existing Kindle Fire device.
The Seattle-based company has sold a range of Kindle e-readers at various prices and has already offered discounts on models that display advertising, the report noted.
