If Amazon were to OEM this device, brand it Kindle Fire 2.0, and provide relatively inexpensive wide-area wireless (e.g., via Sprint or Clearwire), it’d be a very different tablet competitive landscape
By any standard, this is a marvelous device. It’s decisively the best minitablet I’ve tried. It’s razor-thin, sleek, and light, with a gorgeous touchscreen capable of true high-definition video.
But it’s not the new iPad from Apple Inc., which goes on sale Friday. Indeed, using the Tab reminded me why the iPad is the world’s dominant tablet computer, and probably will be for years to come.
