Amazon Kindle Tablet runs Kindle OS based on Android

TechCrunch touched the Amazon Tablet and revealed tons of details about the 7-inch Amazon Tablet, that will be a pain for Apple.

This is kind of an interesting twist to rumors about unreleased products. TechCrunch's MG Ziegler got to "touch" the unreleased Amazon Kindle Tablet and write about it. No photos, but lots of details about the upcoming Amazon Tablet are now revealed. As I suggested in this report about the HP TouchPad price sweet spot the Amazon Kindle tablet will really just cost $250.

Besides the cool low price, Amazon took control over the OS and forked Android to build their own Kindle OS. Amazon's eco-system is supposed to be tightly integrated into Kindle OS. This means you can buy apps and media very easily on the Kindle Tablet. MG Ziegler also says that Google services are nowhere to be seen.

As predicted the first Amazon Tablet will have a 7-inch screen and with the low $250 price point it will be the must have holiday gadget this year eating away at the iPad market share. The Amazon Kindle tablet is supposed to launch in late November - possibly in the Black Friday week.
