Amazon To Intro Tablet Wednesday?

  • September 27, 2011
Apple's speculated iPhone 5 announcement will likely dominate the headlines next week, but tomorrow may be all about Amazon's tablet.

At a press event tomorrow, Amazon is expected to unveil its tablet device, in the company's bid to take on the iPad. Though the topic of Wednesday's event hasn't been confirmed, speculation is the new tablet (which may carry the Kindle name) will be introduced, and it could include two sizes:  7 inches (about the same size as the Kindle) and 10 inches (slightly bigger than an iPad).

Epps believes Amazon can sell 3 million to 5 million tablets in the fourth quarter. That compares with Apple selling 9.3 million iPads in the April to June period.
