Amazon's Upcoming Tablets

Amazon is, apparently, putting out two new e-ink devices with touchscreens. The cheaper one probably has ads on it. I assume these will be a lot like the new B&N touchscreen e-ink device. I've played with it in the store and it's pretty slick.

Amazon is also coming out with two Android tablets: a stripped down affordable 7 inch and a possibly tricked out 10 inch.

A 7 inch tablet is my dream machine. I love Apple, but they refuse to make an iPad that size, so I'm really hoping the Amazon 7 inch comes in at a great price.

Info on Slashgear.

Is there any word yet on whether or not it will have access to the big Android app store? Or will apps only be available through Amazon's store?

Thanks for the link. Looks like touch is becoming the norm.

More competition hopefully will mean we'll soon see the first sub $100 readers.

It's hard to beat the cost/benefit ratio of the seven inch Nook Color.

I just can't get into the Nook Color for some reason. The form factor just turns me off. The little missing corner also drives me batty, and I know that's completely stupid but it does.

Amazon isn't officially saying anything. Only reason anything is known about their tablets is the leaked parts list.
