Amazon to Launch Tablet With FFS Display in Second Half of 2011?

Amazon is reportedly prepping a tablet with Fringe Field Switching (FFS) technology for launch in the second half of 2011, according to DigiTimes.

The online retailer has apparently placed an order with Taiwan-based notebook maker Quanta Computer for a device with an electrophoretic E Ink display which features Fringe Field Switching (FFS) technology for superior outdoor readability.

The device's monthly orders during the peak season are expected to reach about 700,000-800,000 units and Quanta is expected to start shipping as soon as the second half of 2011 with the orders to contribute more than NT$100 billion (US$3.5 billion) to Quanta's annual revenues in 2011, the sources noted. In response to the report, Quanta declined to comment on its clients.

Amazon's online eco-system is thought to make it one of the few companies that could currently produce a worthy rival for the iPad.

Is it going to break as easily as the other Kindle products? Hey Apple, you better sue Amazon as well. Looks like a smaller iPad
