When you have a hit TV Show, more people are watching, therefore, you can charge more for ad space during that program. Tech isn’t all that different. Take the Kindle Fire. Super popular. If you want to advertise in front of an audience that is tech savvy (at least enough to be using an Android tablet), it may soon cost you $600,000 to do so.
Amazon is offering some ad space on the Kindle Fire’s Welcome Screen. For $600,000 users can view your ad for 2 whole months. The ads show up on every boot which adds to the sponsored screensaver ads on the tablet’s screen whenever the Amazon Kindle Fire shuts down.
Amazon isn’t even sure it will even work, but they are trying this. Amazon is considering offering the ad space on the current version of the tablet or might just place the ads on a future ad-supported tablet. So if Amazon offers a tablet with a price subsidized by ads, the price that consumers will pay for such a tablet might make the $199.99 price tag on the original Kindle Fire seem very high. It will be interesting to see where this goes. How would you feel about an ad showing up every time you boot up?
