Could Amazon's Tablet Change the Game?

Monday, 26 Sep 2011 | 5:17 PM ET

Rumors are swirling about a new tablet from Amazon with reports suggesting it could come out as soon as Wednesday.

Will it give Apple a run for its money?

According to Sarah Rotman Epps of Forrester Research, Amazon’s tablet could be a game changer." Amazon is the first tablet to come in leading with content and services,” she says.

But if you’re an Apple shareholder don’t worry too much. Rotman Epps doesn’t think it’s a big worry. “The iPad will still be number 1,” she says.

However it will give a slew of other competitors a run for their money, she says, including The Barnes & Noble Nook Color the Samsung Galaxy, the Motorola Xoom, and Toshiba Thrive.

Get all the details. Don’t miss our entire conversation with Sarah Rotman Epps of Forrester Research. Watch the video now.
