The idea of a 180 degree viewing angle is particularly comical. Who in the hell cares if you can make out the screen when it's at eye level? Does anyone use a computer that way? Does anyone read that way?
Not to mention the fact that to me, Amazon coming out with a tablet makes about as much sense as Nike coming out with a brand of ballet shoes.
If this rumour really turns out to be true, it might be the reader I've been searching for. Not everybody hates LCD screens, some people even prefer them over e-ink. It would have to have a touchscreen, though.
