Amazon Android tablets expected by August or September
And those industry relationships are probably behind the optimistic predictions for the Amazon Android tablets' sales. Taiwanese parts suppliers are saying that Amazon's tablets will launch in August or September, and still manage to sell 4 million units in 2011. Unrealistic? Maybe.
It will depend on two things: the components, and the content. As for the components, earlier rumors suggested that the 10-inch Hollywood tablet would sport NVIDIA's upcoming quad-core processor. But now, the same report from DigiTimes suggests that the processors will be supplied by Texas Instruments.
As for content, DigiTimes reiterates the rumor that the Amazon Prime streaming video service will be featured on their tablet. But we don't know if that will be enough to grab customers from other, more established device-makers. Amazon also has a cloud service in the pipeline. But again, that might not differentiate it from other pre-holiday tablet contenders.
