Amazon's Android tablets on the way

Amazon produces the world’s number 1 ebook reader, the Kindle. They have also been in the news as planning both a 7-inch and 10-inch tablet running the Android OS.

News reaching us suggests that the first tablet will be in the market in about a month’s time.

What sort of customisations are we likely to see on these upcoming tablets? How will Amazon distinguish theirs from the army of Android-powered tablets out there, so they can compete against the iPad?
