Amazon prepping a Samsung-made Android tablet to pour all of its services in

Amazon prepping a Samsung-made Android tablet to pour all of its services in
Ever since the stellar success of the Kindle e-reader, the idea about an Amazon tablet has sparked the imagination of analysts and commentators alike. These rumors reached a tipping point lately, and a bunch of industry observers say it's somewhat of an open secret that Amazon will soon out its own Android tablet.

Considering the online retail giant already has an application store up and running, plus it has all your credit card details, its tablet's popularity can quickly spread like fire. Amazon has all the right tools to make it stick with consumers, too, and create its own ecosystem, since it has the music downloads and the Amazon Instant Video streaming service, not to mention its formidable e-books presence.

The slate is supposedly being made by Samsung, and, again supposedly, is a 7-incher, but anything beyond that is mired in mystery. Considering Asus is able to sell the Eee Pad Transformer for $399, and it is a very powerful tablet, Amazon might manage to out something really affordable, in order to suck users into its unique physical goods/virtual services consumption ecosystem.
