HP/Palm’s Jon Rubinstein made Amazon director: Kindle tablet in his remit?

Amazon has quietly announced that ex-Palm CEO and current HP SVP Jon Rubinstein has joined as a director. The news, part of a security and exchange commission filing, does not suggest that Rubinstein's role as director will include, but it's possible that he could assist in Amazon's development of a Kindle-brand tablet to better compete with the iPad and Barnes & Noble NOOKcolor.

HP eStation Zeen hits FCC, spurs webOS/Win7 tablet speculation [Updated]

HP looks to be flexing their Zeen trademark, with a new FCC filing being spotted for what looks to be a tablet-style device listed as the HP eStation Zeen.  Thanks to a confidentiality clause that doesn't lift until the end of 2010 we don't know any more details beyond the WiFi b/g/n connectivity, but it's not entirely outlandish to presume that this is either HP's webOS tablet or their Windows 7 slate.
