Well, we knew that it was on the way, but when will Amazon ship an LCD tablet? That’s the question. And according to DigiTimes, we have our answer. By the second half of 2011. The tablet is said to feature a Fringe Field Switching LCD display and touch panel from E Ink Holdings, the company behind the Kindle’s EPD e-paper displays.
Quanta will apparently be manufacturing the device and production should top out at about 700,000 – 800,000 units per month. Take this with a grain of salt for now. This isn’t confirmed by anyone yet.
