A TechCrunch writer managed to get his hands on an early version of Amazon’s upcoming Android tablet and provided some really interesting details about the product.
We’ll see if the article pans out, but it says Amazon’s aiming to release the tablet with a 7-inch color touchscreen by the end of November for $250.
The report says the tablets will come with free Amazon Prime service, which provide free shipping and free streaming of a limited library of movies and TV shows. I wonder if that’s permanently free or a one- or two-year free trial.
It said Amazon designed its own Android interface, as expected, and it has a sort of carousel displaying content stored on the device.
Apps on the device include Amazon’s Cloud Player for music and its Instant Video player, and the only Google app is the default search engine.
