Amazon Android tablet to be shipped in the second half of the year?

Amazon is seemingly getting ready to launch an Android tablet (who doesn’t, these days?).

According to DigiTimes, the tablet will be manufactured by Taiwan-based Quanta Computer – not by Samsung, as gdgt reported last month.

It’s said that Quanta could start shipping the tablet “as soon as the second half of 2011”, so this may hit the market before the end of the year.

For the moment, there are no details on the features of Amazon’s tablet. What screen size and resolution will it have? What version of Android? Any cameras? Pre-installed Amazon services? Will it look like a keyboardless Kindle (pictured below)? These question will probably find answers as we get closer to the tablet’s launch date.

Quanta makes hardware for lots of other well-known companies, including Apple, Dell, Sony, Research in Motion, LG and HP.
