Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) has reportedly landed orders for 10.1-inch tablet PCs from Amazon with shipments to begin in 2012, while Quanta Computer has begun shipping a 7-inch model to Amazon.
Wouldn’t Amazon want to make its 10.1-inch tablet available during the holiday season this year?
An Amazon tablet combined with the Amazon’s Appstore, movies & music, Kindle e-books, cloud storage, etc. might make for a compelling one-stop solution, much like the iPad.
I wonder if Amazon is working on a smartphone, too.
