Amazon Hitting the Tablet Market

Recently I just read on the TechCrunch that Amazon has been working on a 7-inch touch screen tablet.   This will be the first full-color kindle screen.  The Movie player will be Amazons Instant Video Player and the Music will be Amazon’s Cloud Base player.  There will be no Android Market Place on this or, Google apps either.  Although the article says “My Understanding is that the Kindle OS was Built on top of some version of Android prior to 2.2 and Amazon will keep building on top of that over time.”  So I’m sure in time we will see some sort of Google Apps in the future if they really want to stay in the game against the other tables on the market.  The Amazon Tablet could be released in October with a bigger version of it coming out next year Q1.

From the sounds of it, I understand that they’re building this around the Android OS with the Kindle OS in mind, but I think if Amazon really would like to compete with other companies, they should just make their own Operating System.  On the bright side of things, I am very interested to see what they do.

What is your take in all this?  Are you looking forward to it?  Will you buy one?  Comment Below.  You can read the full Amazon Tablet Review over at TechCrunch…..Here.  For even more information.
