I’m still hopeful Amazon will unveil two new devices soon, an updated Kindle (dedicated e-reader) and a Kindle++ general-purpose slate (article reference via Dave Winer)
The launch is timed to gain momentum ahead of the Thanksgiving and year-end holidays in the U.S. and Europe, a source told DigiTimes. Monthly shipments are expected to reach 700,000-800,000 units.
According to the report, Amazon will utilize processors from Texas Instruments and touch panels from Wintek, with Quanta to assemble the devices. Sources also said Amazon would provide streaming movie services for the tablets.
