With $50 Fire Tablet, Amazon Doubles Down on Low-end Hardware | Re/code

Likely to disrupt at least the "value" Android tablet market

"The $50 model is being pitched as more capable than other bargain-basement tablets, but its ultra-low price may end up being its biggest feature. Amazon is betting that low prices would inspire customers to make use of its products in new ways. That’s why it is offering the Fire tablet in a six pack for $249.

Limp noted the tablets are far cheaper than many accessories for Apple’s iPad. “You can get two of them for the price of [an Apple] Pencil.”"
