Amazon's Kindle Fire has proven to be the iPad’s biggest (and only, really) threat. Morgan Keegan Analyst Tavis McCourt estimated that Amazon's new tablet cost Apple one to two million in iPad sales. The $200 price tag definitely attributed to the Fire’s success, and that fact may force Apple to competitively price its own tablet lineup to the tune of $300. All whispers lead to the iPad 2 experiencing a price drop once the iPad 3 becomes available, offering consumers a slightly cheaper, yet more dynamic alternative to the Fire. $300? Shit, we'll take two, please.
