Walmart isn’t competing with Apple. Walmart is competing with Amazon.
Walmart is releasing three sub-$100 tablets under its Onn store brand this week. They include an 8″ screen model at $64, a 10.1″ model, and the larger one with a detachable keyboard for $99. Each model has 16 GB of storage and uses Google’s Android operating system.
But the Walmart tablet isn’t about the tablet.
And it’s not about the top-selling tablet, Apple’s iPad, either. Rather, it’s about Amazon.
