Well, this is highly unexpected.
Amazon is allegedly entering the console wars with a yet-to-be-named Android console, priced upon release at about $300. It's described as similar to the redesign of the PlayStation 1, with a oblong shape and grey color. A briefing will be held on the harware soon, and will apparently be demoed on existing iOS and Android machines. The machine is being developed by Lab 126, creators of the Kindle Fire HD, among other succesful Android devices.
More after the jump.
