    Apparently, Amazon likes to be sneaky about sending its products to the FCC. Some sleuths over at the Digital Reader did some detective work and may have found a new Kindle tablet that recently passed its FCC certs. The interesting thing is that the tablet was submitted to the FCC through a "front" corporation rather than directly from Amazon. Additionally, this is not the first time that Amazon has done this. It is, in fact, their typical MO. Here's a quote that explains things in detail,

    There is one other strange thing that came from this filing. Apparently, the aspect ratio of this device is a 4:3 instead of the usual 16:9. This would be a strange move on Amazon's part to basically offer a tablet with a backwards design philosophy. We will keep an eye out and let you know if anything more comes to light.
