Is Amazon creating an Android game console?

We’re past the holidays so clearly the article above was early in speculating that an Android-based Amazon console would be released by then. But this doesn’t mean that Amazon isn’t cooking up something in the background.

If they do one I suspect that their model will be the Apple TV. Amazon had no problems following in Apple’s footsteps by releasing the Kindle Fire tablets, which certainly owe a lot to Apple’s iPad. So it makes sense for Amazon to emulate the Apple TV, but with an emphasis on gaming (an area that Apple has lagged far behind in on the TV).
