The last new product Amazon announced on Tuesday is something we've seen before but it's well worthy of mention: A 7-inch Kindle Fire with last year's hardware specs is now just $139.
I appreciate the nod toward the budget-minded consumer. One kind of elegance and innovation involves adding new power and features while maintaining the old price point.
Another kind involves delivering great performance to a group of users who had previously been shut out of the latest tech revolution due to economic circumstances. I'm glad to see both types represented in today's news.
