The interesting part is that Amazon is a real competitor for Apple and Google. Amazon has all the digital content that Tablet and smartphone users are looking for.
As I mention before the real problem in mobile is payment, how you get paid for content. Apple used iTunes as the base platform, Amazon has their e-commerce store which during the years included all sort of digital content, video, music and apps. Both gathered people’s credit cards for payment, next step was adding a device to distribute and sell digital content. Very simple concept!
Great to see Amazon as competitor in the mobile space and looking forward to an Amazon smartphone!
