It looks like the long-awaited tablet computers from Amazon.com will launch next Wednesday.
The company has scheduled a press conference in New York that day, the same place it unveiled its Kindle e-reader.
Amazon is expected to begin selling color, touchscreen tablets bases on Google’s Android platform but with a new interface. The tablets would connect directly to Amazon services such as it’s streaming music and video services.
Amazon hasn’t said much of anything about the device but a TechCrunch blogger spent time with an early version, according to a Sept. 2 report. It said the first tablet will cost $250, have a 7-inch screen and come bundled with Amazon Prime service that provides free shipping on products and streaming video.
