    A Silicon Valley analyst, named Tim Bajarin, claims to have insider info that Amazon's Android Tablets will come in 7-inch and 10-inch models during the Christmas holiday season this year, and will be sporting NVIDIA's newest Quad-Core Tegra processors. He also added that it looks like the "black and white E Ink-like display & color LCD" hybrid by Qualcomm and Pixel Qi, will not be ready until 2012 or even 2013. More than likely, Amazon will opt for a "Fringe Field Switching" LCD from Samsung with these first batches of Amazon Androids. It'll be interesting to see if his 'intel' turns out to be accurate.
