Amazon’s 10-inch Tablet to be Built by Foxconn, Quanta Builds 7-Inch

It’s been rumored a lot lately that Amazon was planning to get into the official tablet market, moving past just their Kindle e-reader. There’s still a lot being speculated upon with regard to specifics, but reports are starting to come in that a 10.1-inch tablet (previously believed to be Android and built off the quad-core Kal-El, but that’s not mentioned at this point) is being built by Foxconn Electronics. It’s uncertain at this point whether or not it will be released in time for a holiday launch this year or if we’re looking more at the 2012 mark, but the latter is definitely possible. Quanta Computing is also slated to deliver a 7-inch tablet, but even less is known about that at this point, aside from it likely rocking a Tegra 2 chipset.

We’ll keep you posted as more info comes in. In the meantime, weigh on the comments — what’s YOUR ideal tablet size, and what specs does it have?
