When posed a question about an unconfirmed, rumored product, most CEOs would issue a non-commital response or flat out deny the existence of said product. Not the case with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. When asked about the possibility of a more full-feature tablet experience from Amazon, maybe something cooked up with the help of Samsung, Bezos replied, “stay tuned.”
He elaborated a bit, saying that if such a device were ever to come to market it would not act as a Kindle replacement, but rather as a complimentary experience. The assumption is he is either talking in the realm of price or, equally likely, features such as the absence of an E Ink screen. But in Bezos own words, we’ll just have to stay tuned and see what Amazon has in store.
It’ll probably also feature the new fusion project he’s working on and fly you into space. :P (Gotta admit, he’s putting his money into some really cool projects.)
Currently, the Amazon app store is irrelevant anywhere outside of North America. I wonder how a possible zPad will go?
