The Motley Fool's Rick Munarriz references analyst Bobby Burleson's news the other day, "that Amazon plans to build more than 1.5 million tablets this quarter, with as many as 5 million rolling off the assembly line by the end of the year."
Munarriz adds, "Amazon can do it. Perhaps more importantly, Amazon can sell each and every one of those tablets." For the usual reasons we've seen in all the articles on Amazon's ecosystem.
' Burleson's report waxes favorably on NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA) and Atmel (Nasdaq: ATML), as he's hearing that Nvidia's Tegra chip and Atmel's maXTouch touchscreen controller will be part of Amazon's device.
These may both be multi-billion-dollar companies, but playing a key role in what will easily be the market's second most popular tablet by year's end is a needle-moving event. '

Below is the ongoing list of earlier blog articles on the many stronger rumors circulating on online gadget news sites about a coming Amazon color LCD tablet or family of tablets (by year end).
ONE rumor has been about a smaller e-Ink Kindle as well, with touch screen, some time during the fall (via David Carnoy at CNet, who's repeated it twice since then).) Another rumor involves Qualcomm's Mirasol.
