Amazon's Fire phone may have struck out last year, but the company is still swinging for the fences, this time with a $50 tablet.
In a market dominated by Apple and Android, Amazon is once again trying to compete. The online retail giant is slated to release a tablet with a 6-inch screen just in time for the holidays, according to The Wall Street Journal.
While the company was criticized for pricing the Fire phone on par with Apple's iPhone, it seems this new device is taking flak for its lower price tag.
The newspaper speculated that the devices could struggle to gain a foothold because consumers may attribute the low cost to mean lower quality. (Amazon declined to comment.)
