More on Amazon: TechCrunch reports a $99 7" Kindle Fire HD is in production, and will ship this year. The device will reportedly have a 1280x800 resolution and use a Texas Instruments (TXN) OMAP chip, even though TI is gradually exiting the mobile processor space. It's not a stretch to assume the margins for such a device, which would allow Amazon to undercut Google's (GOOG) Nexus 7 (but perhaps not for long) and grow its emerging markets reach, will be negative. With such aggressive pricing, will IDC's tablet forecasts need to be raised again?

  • Does anyone know of any studies/analysis on the correlation between Kindle Fire sales/Prime subscriptions/content purchases?
