Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) is giving out some hints about their tablet so that people would search for more information about their product online. They believe that this would create a trend for their tablet when they let it out. Just this week, they got lucky to receive some help form Comscore.
The e-commerce giant widely anticipated to unveil a low-cost tablet computer, which originated on Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android operating system in October.
The news about another Android tablet comes from gadget blogs that love the publicity to their blog such as the latest Android tablet as a potential challenger to Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) market-defining iPad.
Still, the slow sales of Android “Honeycomb” tablets, which included models such as the Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Toshiba Thrive have moderated enthusiasm for the introduction of another android in the market.
However, we are talking about Amazon, a brand which researchers believe make the company the most promising competitor to the iPad. Assuming it can deliver the tablet within this year; Apple pushes approximately 30 million iPads sales so far.
Amazon moved to boost the credibility of its content on August 18 by disclosing that its Amazon Instant Video now presents over 100,000 movies and TV shows, which includes 15,000 HD titles, available for purchase or rental.
The titles, supported by Amazon’s latest content licensing contract with CBS and NBC Universal, include 9,000 movies and TV shows with no added cost to Amazon Prime members, who pay $79 yearly for unlimited, free two-day shaping.
Amazon Instant video users may well get into their content through PCs, Macs, or Google TV and other compatible devices, which includes Android-based tablets.
In an ideal world, an Amazon tablet is going to allow consumers stream Instant Video, MP3 music and access Kindle e-reader content, matching the massive content provisions available via the 100,000 iPad applications that reside in Apple’s iTunes App Store.
Aside from the above information, there are other reasons, to feel secure in Amazon’s capability in providing a good Web content medium on behalf of its tablet. ComScore said Amazon got more than 282 million visitors in June, which amounts to 20.4 percent of the international Internet population.
Amazon manages to attract 35.4 percent of its audience from North America, while Europe added 31.8 percent of visitors and Asia Pacific totaled for 24.1 percent. Apple.com has the same breakdowns, with 32 percent of its visitors coming from North America, 29.6 percent from Europe and 24.9 percent in Asia.
