Amazon to Challenge iPad 2 and 3 with Coyote and Hollywood Tablets
If the rumours are correct the tablet wars may soon start to heat up as you probably know Amazon is looking to enter the tablet arena with Android tablets and apparently one codenamed Coyote will challenge the Apple iPad 2 while another codenamed Hollywood will challenge the Apple iPad 3.
According to an article over on Cult of Mac, by way of the BGR, an unnamed tipster has delivers details on the Amazon Coyote, which will apparently be an entry level Kindle tablet based on the NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform, so much like the iPad 2.
However its the second tablet that is somewhat more interesting, the Amazon Hollywood, which apparently will have hardware that Amazon hopes will “potentially make the iPad 3 obsolete even before it launches”
Word is the Amazon Hollywood tablet will be based on the NVIDIA T30 “Kal-El”, a quad-core processor that makes the Tegra 2 dual-core CPU look somewhat dated as the “Kal-El” has a 500 percent increase in performance.
Apparently both the Amazon Coyote and Hollywood tablets are expected to release before the year is out.
That’s all the rumour doing the rounds at this time, but personally I can’t see Apple resting on their laurels and letting Amazon deliver a tablet or two that could possibly make their iOS tablets look like something out of the ark, can you?
