The strategy is purportedly meant to steal market shares by saving consumers $30 to $50 with tablets that have an ad pop up every time a user powers up or wakes up the device.  If you’re not interested in the ads, then go ahead and fork out the extra money for a non-ad-supported model.

Google’s Nexus 7 has been a popular choice among entry-level consumers, and even enthusiasts because of the above average components.  An Amazon ad-supported Kindle will lower the price, but the biggest downside is how the ads may negatively affect user experiences.

Amazon will be launching a revised Kindle in a time when the budget tablet market is being hotly contested by the likes of Google and Apple.  The search giant, Google, has already seen success with the recent launch of the Nexus 7, and Apple will also launch a 7-incher of its own some time later this year.  Major players like Apple and Google will make it extremely difficult for Amazon to keep the 7-inch market for itself, but the original Kindle fan base and positive reviews will undoubtedly play a major role in whether or not the Kindle 2 will succeed—ads or no ads.

Unveiling of the two 7-inch Kindle Fire 2s are expected to happen at a media event on September 6.  As for the 10-inch Kindle, reports are suggesting that Amazon won’t reveal its next high-end device until the 7-inch models cement themselves as competitive devices in the budget market.

Oh look, a bug!
