A new report is again confirming that Amazon is developing multiple Android tablets for release this year, and they don’t look to be low-powered e-readers, either. The two known devices are currently going under code names, with the “Coyote” aiming at a lower price point and hosting NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 dual-core CPU. The one that should get you really excited, however, is the “Hollywood,” which is rumored to be getting NVIDIA’s next generation Tegra 3 quad-core processor known by its own code name Kal-El.

Given that NVIDIA is aiming for Tegra 3 devices by late summer/early fall, that should give us a fairly good idea of when we will be seeing at least one of Amazon’s tablets. There is also still a chance we might see an Android smartphone by Amazon, but take all of this information as rumor for now.
