  • Runs Franken-Android.  Supposedly a “forked” version of Android custom to Amazon.
  • 7 Inch Tablet
  • Form Factor much like the Blackberry Playbook
  • $250 – same price as Barnes & Noble Nook Color
  • Amazon-Centric – the “forked” version of android has this tablet focused on media and more specifically Amazon’s media.
  • Storage will be 6GB
  • Wi-Fi Only
  • No camera
