Consumer Reports, via everyone except Engadget:
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.” […]
“We will always be very mindful that we will want a dedicated reading device,” he said. “In terms of any other product introductions, I shouldn’t answer.”
That’s about as clear of a confirmation as you can get from a company that doesn’t preannounce products.
I stand by my predictions about a Kindle tablet — now it looks more likely than ever.
