[Rumor] Amazon Android Tablets Coming Aug/Sept Timeframe Using TI Chips, Not NVIDIA
Some industry intel reported by DigiTimes suggests that Amazon will be ready to launch their Android Tablets in an August/September timeframe. Also according to the source, Amazon will be using Texas Instrument's chips in their tablets, instead of the Tegra series from NVIDIA.
Apparently, one of the big reasons that Amazon wants to hit around August or September is "to meet the peak sales period prior to Thanksgiving in the US and the year-end holidays in the US and Europe". Further, the reason that Amazon chose the TI chipset over NVIDIA's is because Amazon intends to offer streaming movie services for owners of its Tablets, and supposedly the TI chip handles streaming video better.
