BGR: Amazon’s ‘Coyote’ and ‘Hollywood’ Tablets Due By Year’s End

Amazon LogoTry as they might, it’s not a secret that Amazon is working on an Android-based tablet of their own.  In fact, the latest word on the street is that they are prepping at least two tablets, maybe more.  Tonight sees these rumors substantiated a bit by a Boy Genius Report tipster, claiming a pair of devices is due by year’s end.  

Here’s what we now know – There should be an entry level Coyote model with a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and a high-end Hollywood model, which will feature NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 chipset.  Known by its codename of Kal-El, the quad-core processor is on track to land on devices in the second half of this year.  As there is no word on pricing or screen sizes, we’ll just go ahead and assume 7-inch and 10-inch models with costs that will rival the NOOK Color.  We’ll also assume these will be a blended experience, offering part tablet, part eReader services and software.  That is until we hear otherwise.
