More Dirt On The Amazon Tablet Surfaces

We’re learning more and more about the upcoming Amazon Android tablet, and it’s getting more interesting by the week. As of now, we are expecting the tablet to be released in October of this year, with an expected production line of 1.5 million units.

The tablet will be a bit smaller than you standard 10″, but will stand strong nonetheless with its 9″ screen. The expected 2011 production goal would be around 5 million units, including all quarters, posing a possible ‘risk’ for Apple’s iPad 2 business.

California Signs “Amazon Tax”, Amazon Threatens To Cut Ties

California has just signed the Amazon Tax, a tax that will allow it to collect sales tax from online transactions. In the last court battle regarding taxes, Amazon was backed by the US Supreme Court from the 1992 ruling, stating that companies cannot collect sales tax in states where they do not have a physical presence.

States are now looking to expand that definition to include Amazon affiliates who make money off commissions. Amazon had also said it would cut ties with its estimate 10,000 California affiliates if the bill was signed, and Jerry Brown signed it yesterday.
