Why would anyone pay $499 for a tablet when you can buy one for $399? Or pay $329 for a mini- tablet when you can buy one for $199? I’m sure it will take you only a nano (no iPod pun intended) second to figure out that Apple’s iPad is $499 and being challenged by Google, “Google Unveils Nexus 10 $399 Tablet”. My second example is Apple again. A blog in the Huffington Post “ iPad Mini vs. Kindle Fire HD: Amazon Compares Its Tablet To Apple’s In New Ad” labels Apple’s price point as “gutsy” (that is not the actual word that was used but I am being Politically Correct ). Will Apple be able to burn a hole through Amazon’s Kindle Fire even at a much higher price? Probably.
