Amazon Quad-Core Tablet Rumored for 2011
Amazon plans to release two new Android tablets before the end of 2011, including one with NVIDIA's forthcoming mobile quad-core chip, according to online rumors. Amazon is purportedly planning an entry-level tablet, codenamed "Coyote," with a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip. The other slate, dubbed "Hollywood," will sport the new "Kal-El" quad-core mobile chip. There are no rumors about screen sizes, storage capacity or other specs for Amazon's purported tablets, according to Boy Genius Report.
Rumors about Amazon getting into the tablet game have been swirling in recent months after the company announced several Android-friendly services. The company recently released its own app store for Android devices and in late March launched an online music storage service targeted at Android devices. Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos also added more fuel to the Amazon tablet fire when he recently said to "stay tuned" when asked whether his company was working on a one-panel slate.
