Amazon's Tablet May Be Hottest Holiday Gadget

(Reuters) - The Kindle Fire tablet may be the hottest selling gadget this holiday, pressuring Amazon.com Inc's profit margins but giving the world's largest Internet retailer potentially millions of new high-spending customers.

Senh: The Kindle Fire price of $199 is hard to beat, that's less than half of other tablets on the market. It runs Android which has hundreds of thousands of mobile apps and thousands of tablet apps. The 7" form factor is a good alternative to 10" tablets.
