Amazon might have a 10-inch tablet in the pipeline, stock Android seemingly on board

Rumors have been flying around lately that Amazon is prepping an entry-level, 6-inch tablet that will boast an aggressive price of around $50, but if renowned leakster @evleaks is to be trusted, this might not be the whole bushel. It looks like Amazon might be having a larger Kindle Fire tablet in the pipeline, one with a screen diagonal of 10 inches. @evleaks, which is the Internet alter-ego of Evan Blass, also treated us to a render of the device and we can say that its design is noticeably sleeker and more streamlined that the one of Amazon's previous slates.  

Although neither the specs or the projected price tag are yet unknown, it looks it might be having a pretty curious feature on board - judging by the the render @evleaks shared with us, the device could be rocking a rather stock version of Android, but with no Google apps on board. As a refresher, all of Amazon's devices until now have run forked Android with the company's own features and UI atop, but this rumored 10-inch slate might stray away from the pack.

Hopefully, it won't meet the fate of Amazon's smartphone, the Fire Phone, which certainly didn't left a mark in history.
