You're the Pundit: Is Amazon's tablet a contender?
When it comes to forecasting the next big thing, we turn to our secret weapon: the TUAW braintrust. We put the question to you and let you have your go at it. Today's topic is the Amazon tablet.
Powered by Android, with a 7-inch screen, the Kindle tablet will have a capacitive multitouch screen with traditional LCD technology, according to TechCrunch's MG Siegler, who recently got an exclusive look at the new device.
With only 6GB of onboard storage helping to lower its price into easy consumer access, no camera, and no buttons, is Amazon making their tablet too minimal? Sure, the pricing has to be just right, and Kindle has always focused on reading more than surfing, but will the updated Kindle be a contender against Apple's dominance of the tablet market?

|Absolutely, sign me up! I\'d marry a Kindle if it were legal in New York.||248 (6.9%)|
|Maybe. The price has to be so low that I can spend my dollars on eBooks, not on overpriced hardware.\n||491 (13.7%)|
|It depends on how well the non-reading apps are integrated on the device. Yeah, it\'s Android, but will it have the full App Store?||524 (14.6%)|
|Probably not. 7\" doesn\'t excite me, especially when there\'s no eInk.||607 (17.0%)|
|I\'m an iPad guy. Not switching.||1494 (41.7%)|
|Something else. I\'ll tell you in the comments.||215 (6.0%)|
