Rumor of more hardware from Amazon
I don't know anything about this site or this author but I saw this in passing.
Thought I'd see if anyone is interested.
[later edit]--mphf I should have looked a little farther.

I don't know. I feel the MP3 player race is over. So, Amazon entering won't really be any game changer/breaker to Apple. Also to be noted is that Amazon songs do works with the iPod yes? So that really doesn't give amazon any tactical advantage.
Although, if amazon were to develop an iPad-esque tablet that would be awesome atleast from a competition standpoint if nothing else.

Well it kind of makes sense. Given the smaller margin for profit on e-ink and Amazon have a good ereader/ebook market share, they are probably looking for new and other profitable opportunities to utilise Lab126.

Sounds to me Amazon is fighting to survive. Their Kindle hardware will not provide the growth they need in a few years. Their software (in terms of book sale) is quickly becoming "One Of" not "The One" like it used to be.
A media player will reinforce the rumor of Amazon acquiring Netflix. It could be a good play to hedge. The draw back is that Netflix is pricey and doing so will also make Amazon stray away from their bread and butter business of book selling.
