Retail giant Amazon is apparently going to update its tablet lineup with a 10-inch model, which will be the company's largest slate so far.Amazon's history with hardware has been hit and miss. The company's Kindle e-readers cornered that particular market, but then the Fire Phone smartphone flopped and sunk without a trace. In terms of tablets Amazon makes some of the most consistently excellent slates, with good hardware and even good software despite running a forked Android build. These days most Android apps are available on Amazon devices one way or another, and the company even has mega app sales and of course its Prime service which brings movies, music, and TV to Amazon's tablets. A 10-inch Full HD tablet would help users make the most of the media on demand that Amazon now offers, and this time the company may even use a full stock version of Android complete with the Google Play Store, according to @Evleaks. Amazon will make this a high end tablet and the render you see above points to the 10-inch product being sleeker than anything the company has made before. Evleaks also claimed that the company will launch a 6-inch tablet that will cost just $50... extremely competitive.
