Quad-core "Hollywood" and entry level "Coyote" Android tablets prepped by Amazon

Quad-core "Hollywood" and entry level "Coyote" Android tablets prepped by Amazon
We got a tip that Amazon is in the final stages of building its Android-powered tablet, and it turned out not one, but two of them might be on tap from the giant online retailer - quad-core "Hollywood", and "entry level Coyote" ones.

According to our tipster, Coyote will sport a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2, and is already prime for production, but there is more work to be done on Hollywood, which is supposed to feature NVIDIA's Kal-El quad-core chipset that is coming later this year.

We last heard a rumor that Samsung is helping Amazon build its tablet, and we know that the Kal-El chipset is slated for Q3 production, and NVIDIA even promised that we'll see tablets with the quad-core Cortex-A9 silicon in August. Kal-El is supposed to have 12 GPU cores, and be 5x faster than Tegra 2. Now, the only question is since when dual-core became entry level?

Thanks for the tip!
