Paul Reynolds:

Asked today about the possibility of Amazon launching a multipurpose tablet device, the company’s president and CEO Jeff Bezos said to “stay tuned” on the company’s plans. In an interview at Consumer Reports’ offices, Bezos also signaled that any such device, should it come, is more likely to supplement than to supplant the Kindle, which he calls Amazon’s “purpose-built e-reading device.”

That sounds about right from all the rumors and speculation that I have seen. I would guess it would be a touch screen device running Android with the Amazon appstore installed. I would further guess that the full Amazon web store would be presented rather nicely on the device.

Those are pretty easy, the bigger question is price. Will it be higher or lower than the iPad and will there be an ad supported version?
