The long-awaited, much-rumored Amazon Kindle Tablet device has been called "a Game Changer", an "iPad Killer" and a "Tech Must-Have". 

More details have recently been released about the Amazon Kindle Tablet, that has both consumer and industry-watchers buzzing. 

Anticipated to be released in the October/November 2011 timeframe, this Android powered device has a full-color 7-inch touch screen and will cost an estimated $250.  This price is nearly half the cost of the iPad and within a price point that analysts believe will help the Amazon Kindle Tablet sell between 3 million to 5 million units in the fourth quarter, according to Forrester Research.

What does the Amazon Kindle Tablet Look Like?

MG Siegler from TechCrunch had the opportunity to play around with the Amazon Kindle Tablet first hand and gave a rather detailed description of what he thought.

As far as what the Amazon Kindle Tablet actually looks like, no official photographs have yet been released.  However, Gizmodo used Sigler's description to create a mock-up of what it could look like.

Anticipated Extra's from the Amazon Kindle Tablet

What the Amazon Kindle Tablet lacks in storage space (6 GB of internal storage) – it makes up for with extra's like the Amazon Cloud Player app – which lets you store your music online and Amazon's Instant Cloud Player for video. 

When you puchase the Amazon Kindle Tablet, you'll also receive a free year of Amazon Prime – the $79 per year service that gives you unlimited two-day shipping of all Amazon items and access to it's growing library of online video content.
