There have been a lot of rumors going around about Amazon releasing its very own tablet but now it seems those rumors have been confirmed. TechCrunch has apparently gotten some time with Amazon’s forthcoming slate and is reporting that it has a 7-inch, backlit color capacitive screen. Word going around the web says that the hardware is ready and Amazon is just making the last few software tweaks before it goes on sale this November.
The tablet is running a heavily skinned version of Android and it apparently has a Cover Flow-esque UI — and is obviously deeply integrated with all of Amazon’s services (Cloud Player, Instant Video Player, Appstore, and of course the Kindle app). The best part about this is that it will reportedly cost a mere $250 — not worthy to compete with the TouchPad but definitely a lower price margin.
