Kindle Tablet Rumors Continue

Rumors about an Amazon tablet have been circulating for a couple of months now, as Amazon has apparently been making deals with various manufacturers to develop what could be an eReader tablet.

DigiTimes is reporting today that Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) has “landed orders for 10.1-inch tablet PCs from Amazon with shipments to begin in 2012, while Quanta Computer has begun shipping a 7-inch model to Amazon. Foxconn declined to comment on market speculation.”

Amazon chief Jeff Bezos has not denied the existence of the new device. In an interview with Consumer Reports back in May, when asked about a Kindle tablet, he said to “stay tuned.”
