10.1-inch Amazon Tablet made by Foxconn and 7-inch Tablet by Quanta
 
 

The Amazon tablets move closer. Yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported that the Amazon Android tablet would launch before October. Today Digitimes has a report that talks about two Amazon tablets. A 10.1-inch Amazon tablet is supposed to be manufactured by Foxconn and will be shipping in 2012. A 7-inch Amazon tablet is already shipping to Amazon from Quanta Computer.

This would mean that Amazon first releases a 7-inch tablet. The WSJ report yesterday talked about a 9-inch tablet. Amazon is actually doing a great job in keeping their tablet plans secret. Jeff Bezos only confirmed that there will be an Amazon tablet, but nobody seems to have any real information about them. If Amazon can keep this secrecy up until the launch of the Amazon tablet, then there are also in this respect a real competitor to Apple.

 

Amazon has the content eco-system and cloud services in place to effectively compete with Apple. Amazon also has collected tremendous experience with the Kindle device. I am pretty sure they know how to do a tablet right that can rattle the domination of the Apple iPad.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
