Apple and Amazon both expected to make big announcements within the coming weeks.
On Wednesday morning, Amazon is expected to announce its building its own Android-based tablet, which has been an open secret for months. Many say it will give the Apple iPad a run for its money. But Amazon has a strong fan base with its Kindle, and it could become a top competitor in the industry. Tech experts anticipate it's likely to be available for purchase soon.
In addition, Apple confirmed on Tuesday that it will hold a press event on Oct. 4 at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters. Expected to be the star attraction: The long-awaited iPhone 5. With rumors of a bigger camera, longer battery life, faster processor, maybe even a larger screen, all questions will be answered next week.
