Bring it on Amazon. The more competition, the better it is for us consumers, and for innovation. Give Google and Apple a run for their money, and in the process please kill off RIM.

Good luck trying to beat Apple iPhone series, Samsung Galaxy Series and Nokia Lumia.
Don't under-estimate Amazon. Their tablets are doing fairly well despite the competition from Apple and Android. And wasn't the same thing said of Apple competing against Windows Mobile, Nokia Symbian and Blackberry, and then again the same being said of Android?

No, RIM isn't considered competition.
You can compare RIM in this whole thing as a horse race. RIM is the horse dragging behind without any legs.

And in the near future Amazon should expect a slew of patent troll lawsuits. It's kind of like the industry's initiation ceremony.

If they're not competition then why kill them. There is always a chance they will rebound with some startling new technology.
Remember this:
People close to the company said that the replacement of Mr. Spindler, a longtime Apple executive who became chief in 1993, indicated that even board members who formerly supported him had become worried. Their chief concern was said to be reports from the field that the company's apparent inaction, after weeks of highly public speculation about its financial troubles, was resulting in stagnant sales, key executive defections and loss of support among corporate customers and software developers.
Apple was at an all-time low in 1996, in a severe financial crisis. Apple's shareholders and customers were losing faith, and competitors were closing in fast. The worldwide press badmouthed Apple in 1995 and 1996.
Apple is now the most valuable company in the world.
