News Corp looking to cash in on the tablet craze, taking a page from Amazon’s book by offering a branded slate at a low cost of entry. Dubbed Amplify, the tablet is geared as an educational tool and comes preloaded with Google Apps for Education, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, and a graphing calculator.For educators the tablet offers lesson planning software and gives parents a way to track their children’s progress.
Specs aren’t so important for this one, rather it’s the pricing model. For $299 News Corp will offer a WiFi version of the Amplify tablet, but there is one catch. The pricing comes with a $99 yearly subscription to News Corp content. A 4G version will be available for $349 with a $179 per year contract.
