The much talked about Amazon tablet has a 7″ capacitive screen that runs Android and it is called “Amazon Kindle” as reported by TechCrunch whose MG Siegler has seen and used the Design Verification Testing unit of the device.
“The Android that runs on this tablet is very much different from the Android we usually experience on other tablets. It has been specifically designed for Amazon with its interface having “black, dark blue, and a bunch of orange.”
The Touchscreen utilizes the two-finger-multi-touch just like the iPad. It has a full color screen and is back-lit. The Amazon Kindle tablet comes with a well integrated package of apps such as Amazon’s content store, the book reader, Amazon’s Instant Video player. But there is neither access to the Android market nor can you find any trace of Google apps. Amazon is not working on the tablet with Google.
The tablet will be available for sale from November as against rumors of its coming out in October and it will be priced at $250. Depending on the response that the 7-inch Kindle tablet receives, Amazon may also decide to launch a more expensive 10-inche tablet next year.
