Gene Munster: Samsung, Others Should Worry about Kindle Fire

Amazon revealed its not-so-secret tablet contender on Wednesday. But is the aggressively priced Kindle Fire anything Apple should be worried about?

Widely followed Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says “the ones that are in trouble are Samsung, Motorola and BlackBerry. It really isn’t Apple.”

He goes on to say “I think Apple will be just fine despite the impressive low price point of the Amazon Kindle Fire at $199.”

In fact Munster doesn’t think Amazon was ever looking to take on Apple. What does he think Jeff Bezos is trying to do?

Check out our entire conversation with Munster. Watch the video now!
