According to a Wall Street Journal report, the first Amazon tablet may be coming by October. WSJ’s sources also suggests that the tablet will be powered by Android, pack a 9 inch touch screen, but will not come with a camera.
It would be a good idea for the online retail giant Amazon to launch a tablet of their own. The do offer tons of stuff like eBooks, music, and movies. If the Kindle is so successful, what more if it were a tablet, which could offer users more than just eBooks.
In the past, we heard rumors of Amazon launching a dual-core and a Kal-El quad-core-powered tablet. We’re still hoping these rumors are true.
Another possibility comes from Amazon’s 3G version of the Kindle. This 3G version of the highly popular Kindle eBook reader is supplied by Whispernet with free internet for the downloading of eBooks. With this free 3G service on their rumored tablet, users can download eBooks, music, and movies without having to deal with lengthy contracts and SIM cards.
Having Whispernet on their rumored tablet would be great news for users. However, the free data needed for downloading music and movies is totally different from downloading eBooks. Amazon might not make a profit with a large data bill to pay, or it would cause the prices of multimedia to go unreasonably high.
