Amazon Will Reportedly Launch A $50 Tablet

6 inche tablet from Amazon will be priced at just $50.

Amazon hasn't had success while selling its own electronics range. But, now it seems that Amazon will keep on finding more success at the low end market.

As per the report from The Wall Street Journal, Amazon is planning to attack the cheap tablet market this Christmas season.

Yes, that’s right with a $50 tablet that has a 6-inch screen. This tablet is half the cost of the company's present 6-inch Fire HD tablet.

The present 6-inch Fire HD tablet is one of the least expensive tablets worth purchasing. The idea of using a cheap tablet seems very nice.

But, one cannot think of a perfect device at such a price. There are no specs yet, however WSJ proposes the new $50 device will test the breaking points of cost savings.

Indeed, rumor has it the $50 tablet will have a mono speaker, rather than stereo. Amazon could likewise be investigating different approaches to make the $50 target price possible.

The company’s present Fire HD tablets may be as cheap as they are because of lock screen ads.

The $99 Fire HD tablet includes advertisements, though consumers can opt to pay $114 for a version without ads. Amazon could expand ads like those to reach the $50 mark.

The $50 device will not be Amazon’s only launch this year. As always, the company will refresh its tablet line up.

In addition to 6-inch devices, there will also reportedly be 8-inch and 10-inch tablets too. Let’s wait to see if Amazon is succeeding with these products or not.
