‘Coyote’ and ‘Hollywood’ are the code-names of two tablets rumored to be a part of Amazon’s
upcoming tablet ‘family’. Details obtained from one tipster reveal the Coyote will boast a dual-core processor much like Apple’s iPad 2, whereas the Hollywood has something even more audacious up its sleeve: hardware that Amazon hopes will potentially make the iPad 3 obsolete even before it launches.
The Coyote will be Amazon’s entry-level tablet in the Kindle family, and will based on the NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform. Nothing too spectacular there, then, but it’s the Hollywood that looks to be most interesting.
Based on the NVIDIA T30 “Kal-El,” the Hollywood boasts a quad-core processor that makes the dual-core Tegra 2 look like a senior stepping off the bus. With a 500% performance increase, the Hollywood wants to make the iPad 3 look silly even before Apple announces the third-generation device. Something tells us Apple’s got a quad-core A6 in the pipeline to cope, though.
Unfortunately, those are the only details Boy Genius Report’s source can provide for now, leaving much to be desired when it comes to details on screen sizes and other technical specs. For now, we’ll just have to wait, but what do you think? Will an Amazon tablet ever steal Apple’s crown?
