The first Nook Color, released earlier this year, was very popular as it was only $250 and was easily hacked to run its native operating system, Android 2.2.
Additionally, custom ROMs like CyanogenMod were easily flashable turning the cheap device into a fully fledged Android tablet, albeit underpowered.
The Kindle Fire will be the cheapest tablet on the market at $199, and include Amazon's ecosystem of music, video, Kindle ebooks, cloud storage and shopping. Additionally, the tablet will run on the "Silk" browser for faster performance and quicker loading times.
