Amazon Loves to invent and be a pioneer. People don’t want gadgets anymore, they want services and that’s exactly what Amazon has done.  Not only have they priced their tablets below everyone else, but they also upgraded their tablets with more features and specs to what the competition is offering.  Their philosophy, “We want to make money when people USE our devices not BUYS our device.”
