Amazon counters iPhone 5 with $5 Wendell

Thought Amazon would let Apple’s new iPhone 5 hog the spotlight? Think again. The e-tailer turned tablet peddler has rounded out last week’s Kindle lineup refresh with another new addition. And believe it or not, that latest offering is priced at just $5. Take a look:

Too bad Amazon had to forgo thinness and mobility to hit the lower price point. The text-to-speech functionality seems a little sluggish, too. I’d probably get sick of it after a while.

Oh well. At least the Wendell doesn’t require a $29 adapter to work with old chargers and docking stations.

      It said for $10 it will get freaky. Unfortunately it doesn’t have same sexy voice as siri.

      Yes, but I’m not sure which of you would enjoy it more.

    30 second ad for a 1 minute video?… Where the 1 minute video is an ad itself.

    Ehrm, am I the only one who watched the video expecting an actual $ 5 device of some sort? 🙁

      Yes, I’m afraid you were. 😉

      Conan is hilarious, but I was almost expecting something real too. The logic part of my brain shut down when I saw ‘$5’ I guess…but the headline should really read ‘counters iPad’ since that’s what the comedy bit says.

    From the looks of it, he shipping will be pretty expensive.

        It’d probably pay for it on the first use.
