Amazon To Release A Tablet Later This Year

Amazon To Release A Tablet Later This Year

As tablet mania continues to spread, Apple clearly leads the pack. iPad sales are off the charts while the Playbook and Xoom have failed to impress. Can anybody take on the mighty Apple? Amazon thinks they can.

Digitimes has reported that Quanta Computers received OEM orders from Amazon to build a tablet styled PC.  The tablet is expected to ship in the second half of 2011 and will sport a touchscreen and Fringe Field Switching (FFS) technology.

Building a tablet makes sense for Amazon.  They already have a great eBook store, a new cloud based music player and their very own Appstore.  They also have an oline music store and a Netflix style streaming service.  Add all this up and you have one heck of a competitor for the iPad!

This has got to be one of the greatest iPad videos ever.  Enjoy!
