Amazon hopes to leverage the digital content they've already made available online — digital video, music, and ebooks, as well as their new app store for Android devices. The device will ship without a built-in camera, prompting one tablet watcher to report that "it feels like Amazon is trying to strip it down and bring it in at the lowest cost possible." Amazon will also release two new versions of the Kindle — one with a touch screen, and one at a lower price.
"Only a brain-damaged operating system would support task switching and not
make the simple next step of supporting multitasking."
