Amazon launches romance imprint – Montlake Romance

From Shelf Awareness:


Amazon Publishing will launch its newest imprint,Montlake Romance, with Connie Brockway’s The Other Guy’s Bride, scheduled for release this fall. The imprint, which takes its name from the central Seattle neighborhood of Montlake, will publish romantic suspense and contemporary and historic romance novels, as well as fantasy and paranormal. 

“Romance is one of our biggest and fastest growing categories, particularly among Kindle customers, so we can’t wait to make The Other Guy’s Bride and other compelling titles available to romance fans around the world,” said Jeff Belle, v-p, Amazon Publishing. “We also know our customers enjoy genre fiction of all kinds, so we are busy building publishing businesses that will focus on additional genres as well.”

People at Amazon very, very busy

The Amazon tablet is definitely getting nigh. Everybody says so.

The people at PCMag.com, for example, who report that “Amazon is ordering enough tablet components from Taiwanese manufacturers to assemble up to 800,000 units a month and the unnamed device could start shipping in the second half of 2011.” Let’s see, the second half of 2011 would be — why, less than two months from now. Which would mean Amazon has shown Obama-administration-like ability to keep a plan secret.

Digitimes, meanwhile, issued a report — written in heavily accented English — saying that “Amazon internally plans to reduce Kindle’s market price to attract consumer demand from the education and consumer market, while will push tablet PC using its advantage in software and content resources.” Er, that means it’s going to slash holy hell out of Kindle prices when it releases the tablet.

Meanwhile, everyone also seems to be in agreement as to why Amazon is doing this: because Apple has gotten on its nerves.

As the headline to MSNBC.com report put it succinctly, “Amazon.com’s new tablet would be the anti-iPad.”

A Forbes report says Amazon could, conceivably, kick Apple’s ass: “While the hardware probably won’t be anything special, Amazon’s services might give it an edge. While no one has managed to best the iPad’s tight integration of software and hardware, Amazon’s online music, movie, and digital book services rival — and in some cases surpass — Apple’s own.”

A Time magazine report puts it all together, and throws in a reference to the other big player, Barnes & Noble:

This latest rumor contends that Amazon will use “its advantage in software and content resources to challenge iPad2,” while cutting the price of the standard Kindle e-book readers. That would make this tablet seem more like a full-fledged tablet than a tablet/e-book reader hybrid like the Nook Color.

Meanwhile, don’t think Amazon is leaving any competitive stone unturned: another Forbes story says a color Kindle is on the way for Christmas time.

More Amazon tablet rumors

Digitimes, which has a checkered record in reporting rumors, is saying that Quanta Computer, the OEM that makes tablets for Sony and RIM, has received orders from Amazon for tablets that will incorporate both e-ink and Fringe Field Switching technology.

They expect the monthly orders to peak at about 700,000-800,000 units and shipping will start in the second half of 2011.

Let’s see what happens.

Thanks to Michael von Glahn for the heads up.

Amazon Places a Massive Tablet PC Order with Quanta

May

By Michael Koz

The Amazon Tablet rumored to be in development just got a massive boost in reality as the online behemoth recently placed a large order for Amazon branded Tablets with Quanta Computers.

Quanta has verified that it is going to start shipping out the Amazon tablets in second quarter of 2011, so it looks like summer time. It seems like they intend to put out almost 700,000 units in the next three to six months, with an order size of around 3.5 billion dollars.

Digitimes recently interviewed sources at Quanta who mentioned that Amazon enjoys robust sales in North America, but fails to penetrate the European and Asian markets. Amazon has been under the gun by management to release an iPad and tablet competitor. In the last six months Amazon has released its own Android App Market and a cloud system for music. These factors will blend into an exclusive service for the Amazon tablet and provide synergy.

The technology will be assembled by Quanta, but includes many component manufacturers popular with e-readers and tablets. E-Ink is confirmed to provide some new screens and Fringe Field Switching (FFS) technology.
