Online retailer expects to sell 4 million units by the end of the year.


The oft rumored, and almost mysterious, Amazon tablets are in the news again, and this time with a possible launch window to go along with it.

According to Digitimes, who have once again pulled strings from its Taiwan-based sources, Amazon are looking to releases its Android based tablets some time in August or September. Amazon expects to ship around 700,000 to 800,000 units per month, and has set an internal sales target of 4 million units by the end of the year.

The sources also adds that the tablet will use processors from Texas Instruments, as opposed to to the ones made by Nvidia as previously rumored. The tablets are said to run on Android and will be sold in two different versions, though there was no word on this front from the sources. Amazon also plans to provide movie streaming services to its tablet users.
