Amazon may have two Android tablets planned

first_imgAmazon is making all the right moves to introduce an Android tablet of its own on the market. There’s the hardware experience from creating and selling the Kindle, the already popular Amazon Appstore for all your Android app needs, and the promise of lots of free premium apps such as those offered in the deal just done with PopCap.So where’s the hardware? Amazon is staying silent, but that doesn’t stop the rumors flowing about what we can expect from the device they must be planning.BGR has been told that we shouldn’t be expecting just one tablet from the e-tailer, though. Just like the Kindle has two models, the Amazon Android tablet will be offered in two versions as well. They could differ in display size, but it’s what’s under the hood we are most concerned about.The two tablets will cater to the entry level and enthusiast markets. The lower-end tablet is expected to be based on the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform and is codenamed Coyote. The high-end device will use the new Nvidia T30 ‘Kal-El’ quad core chip and is codenamed Hollywood. That’s all we’ve heard for the moment, but more details are sure to follow soon.A 7-inch and 10-inch tablet line up, maybe? It could happen, and would make sense if Amazon intends to compete for our cash with the top tablets already on the market in both categories.Until Amazon makes an official announcement we won’t know for sure, but we doubt it will be long before such an announcement is forthcoming. Earlier this month we heard that the company had already started ordering components from Quanta Computer and E Ink with 800,000 production tablets expected before the end of this year.via BGRlast_img
