Amazon is tinkering the idea of selling the Google Nexus 7 tablet?
At first, some people would be baffled at the idea of Amazon tinkering the idea of selling the Google Nexus 7 tablet on its web site – even more when they have a competing product. However, that shouldn’t mean that there is little possibility of that actually happening.

Interestingly enough, the king of online retailing is in talks with Google about whether or not they’ll be taking hold of some Nexus 7 tablets. As we all know all too well, Amazon surprised the tablet world last year when they introduced the uber budget friendly Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, which relies on Amazon’s custom Android experience. However, it shows little competition when stacked up against the beefier and more updated Google Nexus 7 tablet, which of course, boasts the most up-to-date Android experience in Jelly Bean.

Although some would’ve disregarded even the most remote chances of Amazon selling the Nexus 7 tablet, it seems that “people higher up in Amazon are talking to Google regarding the Nexus 7.” Now, it doesn’t explicitly mean that Amazon is toying the idea of selling the tablet, but it could be something else entirely.

Taking into account that Amazon is rumored to having a Kindle Fire successor on the horizon, it’d be a hard sell to see the reality of Amazon selling its rival’s tablet – then again, competition is always great for business.

Is there a way to use Amazon Prime streaming on an Android handset or tablet?

Just curious.

Do you think I can MHL the stream? I can't do it with HBO Go for some reason.

I NEED them to sell it. I wouldn't be able to purchase one any other way. Cmon Amazon! I don't know why other sites can't be like amazon and let you use a non U.S. Visa to make purchases and ship the products to a U.S. address.

I dont see why they wouldnt. Amazon is a semi-open marketplace which uses direct competition from all angles (from the vendors selling inside Amazon) to keep prices lower than most outside competition.
They are not a super closed company like Apple. I would actually be surprised if they dont sell the nexus7 at some point shortly after launch. They make money on the transactions that happen in the marketplace. Why miss out on money hoping to sell an extra kindle or 2?
