Amazon is readying the tablet device that everyone assumes that it is building, according to a report at the Wall Street Journal. After yesterday’s Wall Street Journal Amazon tablet scoop, the tablet-less now have one more device to choose from.
Details are still a bit sketchy, but according to the Journal the new Amazon tablet will have a nine-inch screen. It will run on the Android platform. And it is expected to launch somewhere around October. Given Amazon’s past success in e-commerce and e-readers, then the tablet’s launch date could give pause to those already planning to buy an iPad.
