Amazon and Android sittin’ in a tree…

TechCrunch: “It’s called simply the “Amazon Kindle”. But it’s not like any Kindle you’ve seen before. It displays content in full color. It has a 7-inch capacitive touch screen. And it runs Android.”

I’m pretty sure Amazon is pulling a fast one on Google. If they do what I suspect they’re doing they could take over the top spot in the Android OS space, ahead of Google. Yes, I think they could do it. They have their own Android store, they have the selling power of the Amazon and Kindle name. If they focus on creating a great user interface and experience on top of the Android OS why can’t they be the leader? Android is dying for someone to create an iOS, or even WebOS, experience.

Why not Amazon?
