Rumors of Amazon's first foray into the tablet world seem to be solidifying. Today, BGR received a tip adding credibility to the potential "family" of devices that the online giant is supposedly prepping. While these devices remain squarely in the realm of rumor, the few details that can be gleaned are pretty juicy.

The tip gave some info on two different tablets: "Coyote," an entry level tablet that will be running NVDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and "Hollywood" - a higher end device powered by NVIDIA's forthcoming quad-core Kal-El SoC.

As of yet, there is no word on any other specifications - at all. We don't know the size, or even if these will be Android devices. As Amazon has invested heavily in the jolly green robot, with their App Store and Cloud Music services, it seems to be a no-brainer that they will run Android - but stranger things have happened. Suffice to say, with quad-core devices potentially hitting the scene by the end of the year, I may just rethink that dual-core tablet I had my eye on.

    Quad core? Man, I bought my phone not even a year ago and I think I've been out-cored 3 times already...

    I know. Sucks doesn't it =/

    Nothing short of 256 cores will do. One must complete the SETI project on one's tablet after all...

    Dam you. Stranger Things Have Happened is stuck in my head all over again.
