Kindle Fire to Start a Tablet Price War?

Best Buy has already reacted to the introduction of the Kindle Fire by dropping the price of the HTC Flyer by a whopping $200 bucks beginning today. That still places the price $100 over the price of the Kindle Fire, but selling a tablet at a loss is hard to compete with.

With the holiday shopping season getting closer, we might see even more price reductions on older tablets before the end of the year. Amazon's ultra-low price for the Kindle Fire could take market share away from some of these tablets unless they aggressively cut their prices.
