    Some industry rumors are floating around about the possible Amazon Android Tablet, that we hinted at earlier. Supposedly, Amazon has made an order from Quanta for a large amount of tablet PC's, that will be utilizing Fringe Field Switching (FFS) technology touch panels from E Ink Holdings (EIH). This is the same company behind the amazing displays that are currently in the Kindle from Amazon.

    The DigiTimes article that was the original source of this rumor also had this to say,
    If they hit those numbers, the second half of this year could be when Amazon with the help of Android, starts to put real pressure on the iPad. It'll be a fun ride to witness.

    I would buy that just to say that I have one. I really like the e-ink display or whatever they are calling it.
