How will Amazon pull it off? Well, for one, the company already has the trust (and credit card information) of over two hundred million people. Amazon also knows its customers' buying habits, and has developed sophisticated algorythms in order to recommend products to them. These facts alone could give the company a seriously long leg up.
Then there's the Amazon App Store, which has been steadily gaining traction over the past six months. Dozens of apps have debuted in the store, including big hits like Plants Vs. Zombies. With its own app store pre-installed, Amazon is poised to make serious cash on the downloads of its users.
The company still has a few hurdles to overcome. The biggest snafu we can see coming is a suit by Google. We're guessing they'll be none too pleased about a manufacturer using their own app store on their tablets instead of Android Market. Amazon will also need to expand the reach of their App Store, which is now limited to users in the United States.
Do you think Amazon has the brains and brawn to pull this off?
