Amazon's Kindle Fire Has Content, Price to Compete Amazon just put the rest of the tablet world on notice by pricing the Kindle Fire at $199, less than half of the $500 mark that the industry has gravitated toward as a standard price. By doing so, Amazon is redefining for consumers just how much they need to pay for a quality tablet. "It makes it much more difficult for pure tablet vendors - other than Apple - to sell products at a profit," said Avi Greengart, who covers consumer electronic products for Current Analysis.
