Bezos hints at Amazon tablet in interview

For months we've been talking about the impending arrival of an Amazon Android tablet and Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos didn't quite let the cat out of the bag--but he came close.

In an interview with Consumer Reports, when asked about the possibility of Amazon doing a tablet, he replied, "stay tuned."

Bezos also said that if Amazon were to do a tablet, it wouldn't replace the Kindle but be sold alongside it. That seems rather obvious, but that he was even talking hypothetically about such a scenario strongly indicates that a tablet is coming; it's only a matter of when, what size it will be, and how much it will cost.

Point??

What is the point of the Amazon tablet? You can already buy a tablet (iPad, Galaxy, etc..) and use the Kindle app. So why have a device that is dedicated to Amazon? Maybe it is just because Nook has a tablet than Amazon needs a tablet. I guess if they can keep the price down people will buy it if it is cheaper than other tablets. Any thoughts on the motivation of Amazon to have their own tablet?
