- Priced a lot less than the iPad
- Due late September or October
Also, if you know anything about hardware then you probably know that an iPad competitor can't sell for "hundreds less than the entry-point $499 iPad" because the parts cost too much. For example, the HP TouchPad cost $318 in parts. What, you think the AmTab will be a loss leader, with the loss to be made up in digital content sales? That's not Amazon's business model. The digital content is itself the loss leader.
The NYPost are clearly a big believer in the "biggest shovel" approach to journalism. Why bother reporting on facts when you can just shovel up the same old unsubstantiated rumors as everyone else?
They are a tabloid. They are about as credible as the Star or any other of the supermarket rags. Seriously, folks, I would believe the NYPost on gadget rumors about as often as I would believe the Weekly World News. (Actually, no; at least with the WWN everyone including them knew they were publishing horse shit. The same cannot be said for the NYPost.)
