Amazon tablet release date to see 3m units ship in October?

The Amazon tablet release date has once again been teased with an October arrival

New rumours have added weight behind the expected October Amazon tablet release date with the mooted Android device once again reported as heading for the autumn arrival.

According to reports from Taiwanese news sources Cens, Amazon is employ Quanta, the company responsible for manufacturing the company’s Kindle device to produce its first tablet with three million units reportedly being readied for an October release.

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.

Could an Android powered Amazon tablet rival Apple’s iPad 2 atop the tablet market? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
