Amazon is launching a new 6-inch tablet in time for the holidays, according to The Wall Street Journal, and its main selling point will apparently be its rock-bottom pricing: $50. The company's Fire HD 6 tablet costs twice as much with advertisements, so one has to wonder what its specs list will look like. It's worth noting that Amazon was forced to price its current Kindle and Fire tablet models higher than $50 -- Bezos' target retail price for them -- due to the cost of their components. That said, the device could be meant for people who want sort of a throwaway tablet for simple tasks like looking up recipes in the kitchen or for online shopping. After all, tablets at that price point typically have low-res screens, small storage spaces or poor battery life.
