It's not about free phones and tablets it's more about reducing the "criminally high" profit margin.

So sad that you think a $200 iPad to make should be sold at their current prices and never have been reduced in all these years.. You are exactly why apple never reduces prices, their followers pay without question, which is pathetic..

iPad, is iPhone but bigger, iWatch will be just a smaller version, iPod is simply a useless version, essentially apple sells the same device in different sizes for ridiclous prices.. and you pay and pay, over and over, the same 10 million people own the 100million iOS devies lol...

Then u rip android for trying to offer an alternative to the apple way of life... DON'T SEE TECHNOLOGY THROUGH THE LIMITED VISION OF APPLE'S EYE

The resolution is going to be 1024 by 600 and to be honest, with a tablet having 720p displays already... its going to be hard.

smart move. The nexus 7 is only $200 and it has way more functions than kindle . Yet kindles HD is priced at $270

P.S: I will never buy a kindle,even more useless than an ipad (if u have an iphone, no iphone ipad mini is actually decent).

Not a bad price at all. Considering the only reason I've got for owning a tablet is for reading comics, getting one for only $100 might work out best.

Though, frankly, I'm hoping this just spurs Google into making a budget Nexus 7 since I'd prefer the straight Android UI to Amazon's.
