Amazon clearing tablet inventory

It appears that Amazon may be feeling the heat of the Nexus 7 wave - or perhaps even the oncoming Apple iPad mini - as they place essentially their entire Kindle collection on sale for back-to-school. Though many of the sales have halted here on the morning after a super-sale weekend, Amazon did have the Kindle DX up for 29% off (that's $110!) and cases, speaker docks, sleeves of all kinds, and more. This could mean several things, but what we're banking on is this: a whole new model - or models - coming on quick.

Amazon Kindle Fire publishers leak, used PlayBook as template

Amazon Kindle Fire publishers leak, used PlayBook as template

The Amazon Kindle Fire tablet may be just a day away from launch, but further details of the Android-based ereader slate continue to leak. Originally tipped to be aesthetically similar to the BlackBerry PlayBook, thanks to a shared ODM in the shape of Quanta, there's talk that the Kindle Fire actually used RIM's tablet as a template. Still, it's software which will arguably be more important - or, to be precise, content - and the pipes are groaning with word of which publishers have lined up to be included in Amazon's roster.

Amazon Kindle Tablet further cloud clues emerge

Amazon Kindle Tablet further cloud clues emerge

Amazon's Kindle tablet may be the most cloud-centric slate we've seen to-date, reports indicate, ironically making it perhaps the purest implementation of Google's cloud ambitions, despite the search giant reputedly having zero involvement in its development. In addition to delivering streamed music and video from Amazon's Cloud Player and Prime Video services, the Kindle tablet could also put all documents - both ebooks purchased from the retailer's virtual store, as with the existing Kindle ereaders, and user's own personal files - into the cloud.

Amazon Prime ebook subscription in talks for Kindle tablet

Amazon is reportedly considering a subscription-based ebook service, in effect a Netflix-for-readers, which would charge an annual fee for content access. The scheme would initially be part of Amazon's Prime scheme, customers of which currently get unlimited two-day shipping and streaming access to the retailer's digital TV and movie library, the WSJ reports, although the response from publishers Amazon is in talks with has apparently been mixed.

Amazon Kindle tablet November launch looks increasingly likely

More signs of a November launch for the Amazon Kindle tablet, as supply chain checks suggest that the bulk order of touch panel controller ICs used in the upcoming 7-inch slate should be in the retailer's hands - or, at least, those of its assembly partner - by the end of that month. ILI Technology (aka Ilitek) is supplying Amazon with 5m controller ICs, the Commercial Times reports, expected to show up in the $250 tablet that the online retailer hopes will best Apple's iPad.

Amazon’s 7-inch Kindle Tablet gets handled, priced at $250 for November

One of the two long-rumored Amazon tablets has been shown to TechCrunch for some hands-on time under the condition that no photos be revealed.

Unfortunately, it's sounding much less like an iPad-killer and more like a super-charged Kindle ready to take on the Nook Color.
