Amazon tablet: "stay tuned" says CEO

No word on a release date or specs, but Amazon tablet is looking more nailed on than ever.

The much-mooted Amazon tablet has moved a step closer to reality, after the online retail giant’s CEO dropped the biggest hint yet about a full-on iPad rival. When asked about such a device, Jeff Bezos told Consumer Reports that punters should, “…stay tuned,” for more news.

However, he remained coy when pushed on what Amazon’s plans were, saying that any such device would not replace the best-selling Kindle. “We will always be very mindful that we will want a dedicated reading device. In terms of any other product introductions, I shouldn’t answer.”

The Amazon tablet has become the hottest rumour in the tech world in recent months. Word is the device will run Android Honeycomb, as the Kindle-maker looks beyond its ace, but basic eReader.

Will you be stumping up for an Amazon tablet? Or should it stick to making eReaders and let the big gadget makers get on with battling it out in the tablet space? Let us know what you think now on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
