Little is currently known about the mooted Amazon tablet with recent rumours suggesting the online retailer was planning to launch both 7-inch and 10.1-inch tablets, both of which are likely to run Google’s tablet centric Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS.

Whilst it is widely predicted that any 10-inch Amazon tablet would boast an LCD display, some reports have suggested the currently mythical iPad challenger will land with a screen that can switch between LCD and E-ink style in order to save battery and offer a variety of functionality. Such technology, however, is still believed to be some years off.
