Amazon Takes Aim at Apple Yet Again

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

Last year, Amazon saw sweeping success with the launch of its Kindle Fire tablet, easily securing the No. 2 spot in a market largely composed of Apple and everyone else. And while it certainly has the lower end of the space under lock and key, Amazon appears to have grander ambition in this massive growth space. According to rumors, the company already has a next generation of its Kindle Fire under way for a possible launch sometime later this year. But what does this mean for Apple, Amazon, and the rest of the tablet field? In this video article, Andrew and Brendan break down how this could affect each company involved and its investors.
