Is Amazon building a $50 tablet? According to the WSJ, Amazon is preparing a $50 tablet for the holidays, a device that would be even cheaper than the company's basic Kindle e-reader.
The tablet will have a 6-inch display, but will be priced at half of the cost of the company's own 6-inch Fire HD tablet.

With such a price tag, there is little hope for the performance of the tablet. The report claims that the device will "test the limits" of cost savings, including using a mono speaker. Yikes.

Most likely, the device will also have lock screen ads like its Fire tablets have, to help subsidize the costs.
