Amazon may be cooking up a $50 tablet

Test Topic
Amazon may be taking on the iPad with a super low price tablet. I'm Bridget Cary, this is your cnet update. [MUSIC] As we're bombarded with reports about all the new gadgets Apple will release for the fall, it looks like Amazon could have a new tablet out in time for the holidays. The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon is working on releasing a $50 tablet with t six inch screen. And that's to lure in the more budget conscious shoppers. That makes it half the price of Amazon's current cheapest six inch, HD Fire tablet, which you see here. The journal reports we could also see Amazon release a few other tablet models as well. The markets for tablets isn't very hot right now. Most people that own one keep it for a long time and don't upgrade. That's according to an IDC report and shipments for Apple's iPad have declined 26% from two years ago. Meanwhile, Amazon is also pushing deeper into it's delivery service with restaurant meal deliveries in. Seattle. It announced a partnership with a handful of eateries to deliver food to your door in one hour or less, with the prime now app. You can only get the restaurant food delivery if you're a prime member, which costs a $100 a year,and is part of the membership perks. The app's seamless and grub hub are leaders in the space, but Amazon isn't the only one cooking up some new competition. In July, Groupon also began a restaurant delivery and take out service called Groupon To Go. That's in Chicago. And Uber, the car service, also has a lunch delivery service for a few cities. In other mobile news, Verizon is launching a new, free video streaming service. It's call go ninety and it's making a big marketing push to millenials to try it out. It's free and it supported by advertisement. It will play a mixture of traditional live tv programming and on demand shows along with some shorter clips, similar to the types of clips you'll find on YouTube. You'll get content from MTV, comedy central, Nickelodeon and the NFL is also a contract partner. This Go90 service isn't just for Verizon subscribers, it's offered to everyone. But, it can only be viewed on phones and tablets, so you can't watch on a Roku, an Apple TV, or even a laptop. Verizon also announced that it's gonna begin testing crazy fast five G wireless speeds within the next year. Yeah, five G. And maybe it will be deployed commercially in 2017. Industry experts say we wouldn't see a new wireless speed rollout until the year 2020, so this will make Verizon the world's first carrier to test 5G, which could be 30 to 50 times faster than our current 4G networks, maybe even higher speeds. is then what Google Fiber offers. You can download a whole movie in 15 seconds. That's it for this tech news update, but be sure to head to cnet.com for the latest. From our studios in new york, I'm Bridget Kerry. [MUSIC]
