  • Amazon CEO: PSSST! Indlekay Abletay Oonsay!



    Sometimes there is a subtle cue, a moment when an individual's poor choice of words hints at future products. Then sometimes those hints take the form of a neon wink, followed by a kick to the balls, and a back flip out of the room on to a tie-dye unicorn.

    Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, pulled the latter.

    Bezos, when asked in an interview by Paul Reynolds of Consumer Reports, if amazon would be putting out a non-kindle tablet device, Bezos said consumers should, "Stay tuned."

    While it is an out of characteristic move for Bezos to make such a bold hang-on-to your seat comment, it does run in line with the rumors surrounding Amazon's wishes to expand the Kindle line of products. In March it was reported that Amazon posted more than five openings for programming jobs, specifically looking for developers with Android experience.

    While it is still unclear what Amazon has up its sleeve, the prospect of seeing a Kindle branded Android tablet seems more and more likely.

    Amazon doesn't share Kindle sales number publicly, which are estimated to be around the 5-8 million units sold since the devices inception. Apple on the other hand flaunts its sales numbers like prized tattoos plastered on the companies forehead, and at over 20 million iPads sold rightfully so. A well equipped, and feature rich Kindle tablet could help Amazon prevent a complete takeover by Apple in the eBook arena. Also, it would allow them to tap magazine publishers and other graphic rich publications that have recently enjoyed a flurry of activity on the iPad.

    Letting apple and other Android tablets have sole control, and access to digital magazines would not be a wise move. Here's to hoping Amazon makes the tablet market more competitive and maybe even shakes things up a bit.
