Amazon practically invented the low-priced 7 inch tablet niche when it launched the Amazon Kindle Fire in 2011; now, Amazon wants to get to the business of hosting wireless devices as evidence suggests that the online retailer has been testing out a wireless service.

I'd rather have worldwide coverage with satellites than just a nationwide LTE... but then, since we're talking about Amazon and their infinite awesomeness, they could throw us a brone (they're everyone's bro and wingman :D) and offer unlimited int'l roaming (voice and text) with some 3G data allowance included (2GB maybe?), thanks to the satellite(s). Yeah, that's a nice dream to have ;P

Did Google look into this and decided there was too much red tape?

I personally disagree with Amazon creating the 7 inch tablet niche. I give that to the Nexus 7. Amazon tablets stink at browsing the web. Since most people read books on the tablets why would they want internet service. You just download it on wifi.
