Amazon has been hinting at a tablet for sometime, but details are still a little scarce. Word has it the unnamed tablet will have a 9in display, but no camera. This points towards a cheaper end tablet that undercuts the Apple iPad, Motorola Xoom, Galaxy Tab and other e-reader devices.

Consumers can expect a tablet that connects users to Amazon’s extensive media content, including Amazon MP3 music and Cloud Player and Amazon Instant Video. The device would run the Android “Honeycomb” Operating System and rumour has it that it’ll be hitting the shelves this October.
