Amazon Kindle Android Tablets, Cheaper Than iPad 2, Pixel Qi LCDs?

Cult of Mac: The 7-inch Kindle Android tablet codenamed Coyote will be priced at US$349 and equipped with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU. The larger 10-inch Hollywood version will come with a $449 sticker and powered by a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra T30 “Kal-El” SoC (system-on-chip).

This might be coincidence but Pixel Qi just announced that it will be showcasing two new displays at Computex: a 7-inch 1024×600 and a 10-inch 1280×800 LCD. These two LCDs sport power savings of up to 80% compared to conventional LCDs by completely shutting off the backlight in reflective mode and allowing sunlight readability. I think this is just the ticket to give the iPad 2 some serious competition.
