Here’s a sweet rumor for you this late afternoon. Amazon has long been rumored to be working on an Android tablet. The launch of their Android Appstore led us to believe that it was true, but it seems their goal with that is a bit different than we originally expected. Other evidence – such as job postings for Android-experienced engineers – came up, but nothing really came of it after that.
And now the retail giant is rumored to have inked a deal with Samsung to create the hardware for their Android-based tablet. It came by way of gdgt, a site whose credibility has been solid over the few years since its inception. The editor responsible for breaking the story – Peter Rojas – says he’s 99% certain of the details. Said details are still scare, though. We want an Amazon tablet just as much as the next guy but it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer before we get even the slightest of hints as to its existence. [via Electronista]
