That seems likely, especially because the Amazon tablet probably won’t have a camera. Amazon plans to release the tablet in the fall, according to reports, and will view it, in part, as a way to allow people to buy (and rent) Amazon content on its own device.
Here’s the word from the Wall Street Journal:
Amazon’s tablet will have a roughly nine-inch screen and will run on Google’s Android platform, said people familiar with the device. Unlike the iPad, it won’t have a camera, one of these people said. While the pricing and distribution of the device is unclear, the online retailer won’t design the initial tablet itself. It also is outsourcing production to an Asian manufacturer, the people said.
