Internet is ablaze with commentary after the Wall Street Journal discovered that Amazon is working on the next generation of its 6" Android tablet. The biggest news is that it's expected to hit the magical price of $50, or less.
While we have yet to find out much of the specification, including the screen resolution, even the exact size somewhere in the range between 6 and 6.5", we are quite confident it will be powered by a MediaTek chip.
