Tablets, tablets tablets. With so many Android tablets hitting the market these days and most of them being stock, vanilla Android 3.1 Honeycomb, its hard for these devices to really stand out from one another. Manufacturer’s are well aware of this and it’s one of the reasons why companies are trying so hard to offer things like specialty app stores and custom UI’s across their devices.

Enter, Amazon. Following the success of their wildly popular Kindle e-reader, Amazon is set to unleash their dual-core “Coyote” and quad-core “Hollywood” Android tablets onto the masses any day now. But why would a consumer choose their tablet over all the others? According to Detwiler Fenton, a consumer research firm in Boston, Amazon will offer their streaming movie service for FREE exclusively to the first wave of early adopters who purchase their upcoming tablets. Couple that with other Amazon services like their AppStore (one free paid app everyday!) and their Cloud Locker music streaming service, and you have the makings of a true mainstream winner. Can’t wait to see if these new tablets really catch on.
