(Tech Times) – After attempting and failing to sell pricier tablets to customers, Amazon is reportedly now looking to launch a $50 tablet for budget-conscious customers within the year.

The device would be geared towards buyers that are looking for a simple tablet for straightforward uses such as doing online shopping on Amazon and streaming videos.

Sources familiar with the matter revealed to the Wall Street Journal that the tablet, which will be half the price of Amazon’s 6-inch Fire HD tablet, will also feature a 6-inch screen and will be released in time for the holiday shopping season.

However, a cheaper tablet will most likely come with sacrifices in quality. While the exact specifications of the device were not revealed, one of the sources said that the $50 tablet will come with a mono speaker instead of stereo.
