So after months of hype, it looks like Amazon’s finally ready to unveil its 7-inch, $ 250 Kindle tablet, built upon a custom Android fork and leveraging all of Amazon’s media stores, including the Amazon Appstore, Amazon On Demand, Amazon Kindle and Amazon MP3. It won’t be official until it launches, but we’ve been hearing rumors of the device for a while now, and have been told Amazon expects to sell 2M of the devices by the end of the year. Now they are sending out invites to an uncharacteristic press conferenmce scheduled for September 28th at 10:00AM. Can’t wait to see if this is a viable iPad competitor, or just another crap tablet. I have to say, I’m intrigued. If Amazon can do a better job of an entry-level Android tablet than the Nook Color, they might really have something here. [via This Is My Next]
