"We don't want to lose a lot of money" on Kindle hardware sales, Jeff Bezos insists, even though Amazon's (AMZN) pricing for its latest tablets and e-readers suggests more losses could be arriving.

    That is the reason I will not buy kindle fire or ipad or any tablets that try to lock you in to buy the services. I would by a generic tablet that will carry all the services from all "ecosystems" and I should be able to choose whatever service I want.
    It could be a good idea for Amazon to give every Kindle Fire buyer one year free Prime Membership.
