Marco Arment shares his thoughts on the rumored Amazon Tablet:

But I’m not sure that it will significantly hurt iPad sales. It’s probably not targeting the same market. If people want an iPad, they typically want an iPad — they don’t first decide that they want “a tablet” and then go find the tablet that they like best.

This to me, has been the key to Apple’s success. I have been telling this to anyone who talks to me about the iPad vs. Android. The people who want an iPad or iPhone get it. Most people don’t consider something else and end up with an iOS device. They only end up with a non-iOS device is that is what they are looking for in the first place.
