Is the Amazon tablet coming on Wednesday?
Amazon have sent out some invitations to a press conference in New York on Wednesday and while we’re still waiting for ours to arrive, we’re prepared to (grudgingly) report on what it might all be about.
Rumours are flying around the techosphere that the press conference could see the grand unveiling of the Amazon tablet, believed to be called the Kindle and almost certain to run on a version of Android that will be unique to he device.
Best of all, the Amazon tablet is believed to be priced at about $250 – well below the iPad and probably cheap enough to convince large numbers of punters to give it a whirl. The trick will be that Amazon will then make their money from selling content and other services for it through their own app store.
The Amazon tablet is said to have a seven inch screen and a full colour display and some analysts are already calling it a game-changer. Things should get very interesting after Wednesday…
