If this true, then why google & LG saying they can not meet the dimand for Nexus devices. So it is a shame that LG can not not produce few hundred devices per month to meet nexus demand...LOL.

Congrats to the Amazon CEO and Amazon. I watched their presentation and they seem just like Google.

Their philosophy pretty much is that they only make money if you use their services and not just when you buy their products.

I don't understand some people claims that nexus 7 will cannibalize and beat kindle, which is not true at all... Consider the Amazon has most satisfied customers among the android maker...

i think amamzon should make an android base OS not just costumize one.. just like aliyun OS, that would be nice, and they also could name their OS versions!

That's interesting...considering most android fans will say that the Nexus 7/10 is the best tablet or a variation of a Samsung tablet. Seems like the Kindle is carrying the torch & by quite an amazing lead.
