Amazon

Regarding an Amazon tablet (or, bringing content to an experience fight)

There's been talk of an Amazon super-Kindle running Android OS since... about 5 minutes after Steve Jobs left the stage following the original iPad introduction. Now that Amazon has launched their Appstore (TM in contention), that talk is heating up again. And why not? It's an obvious play. I'd be surprised if Amazon hasn't had one in the labs for a while now (just like I would have been surprised if Facebook hadn't been working on a phone...)

Amazon has content like iTunes, including (in the US at least -- and more on that in a moment), ebooks, movies, TV shows, music, and now apps. They've made hardware before with the Kindle line.

But they're hardly the only one.

Apple reportedly rejects Sony Reader app, changing stance on purchases made outside the App Store?

According to the New York Times, Apple has rejected a few apps recently including Sony’s Reader app, based on the way content is purchased for use within the app. Sony's Reader app is an eBook platform similar to Apple’s own iBooks app and the Amazon Kindle app. Content can be found and purchased outside the app, bypassing Apple's iTunes Store and therefore bypassing Apples slice of the pie.

Apple TV magically appears on Amazon's best-selling gadget list

Apple TV is currently ranked in the number 12 position on Amazon's best-selling gadget list. What makes this so interesting is that Apple TV wasn't even listed at all until now, despite its sales numbers. When that was discovered and began to be questioned on several prominent online sites, the Apple TV magically showed up. (Amazon has yet to respond to questions on why Apple TV was originally excluded from their list.)

Also an interesting bit is that the competing Roku XDS and Boxee Box are also on the list, though below Apple TV's position.

Amazon releases Windowshop for iPad

Amazon has released Windowshop for iPad. If you use Amazon as frequently as I do, you may already realize that the current iPhone and iPad offerings are pretty grim.  I've never been a huge fan of the Amazon app as it seems to just be a mobile version of the site shoved into an app.  Windowshop seems to bridge that gap quite nicely on the iPad and it's now available in the App Store as a free download.

iPad now available from Target, Amazon

As expected Target has begun selling Apple's iPad, and if our inbox and subsequent searches are to be believed, online retail giant Amazon has joined them.

Like our early screenshots showed, Target is offering the complete line of iPads. Amazon is only selling the Wi-Fi iPad though 3rd party resellers may or may not have the 3G model available (the page was showing some, then popping up errors, so your luck may vary).

Apple moved millions of iPads via their own Apple Retail and Apple Online stores and getting them onto the shelves (real or virtual) of more and major outlets can only help them sell more.
