Same price as Nook Color
According to the post over at Tech Crunch, Amazon's Kindle Tablet is very much real and should be ready to storm the market sometimes this fall, most probably by the end of November. Amazon Kindle Tablet, as rumorville is calling it, is a 7-inch, Android driven, capacitive touchscreen tablet will apparently have a US $250 price tag.

The rumors regarding the Amazon tablet have been around for quite some time and it is no wonder that Amazon wants a piece of this lucrative market. According to the report, Amazon managed to push the price down to a reasonable US $250, pretty much the same price that Barnes & Noble wants for its Nook Color.

According to the same report, the device is pretty much finished as Amazon is working on the software. Although it will be based on quite well known Android system, it will be massively overhauled in order to be something that Amazon wants. It could be based on some Android 2.x version but that will not be important due to massive change of the OS that Amazon is planning.

As far as the specs go, current rumors claim that the Amazon Kindle Tablet will feature 6GB of internal storage, SD card port, WiFi, probably a version with 3G as well, and it will lack any sort of camera, front or rear one.

The 7-inch Kindle Tablet should be ready by the end of November while the 10-inch one is rumoured for Q1 2012.
