Bezos on Charlie Rose: Buy Kindle 3

Jeff Bezos appeared on Charlie Rose to pitch the Kindle 3 and appeared to try too hard to say he's not interested in the tablet market other than to use tablets and hope that tablets will bring in business for Amazon.

Is the Kindle a companion to the tablet as he suggests or it's a smoke screen until he can bring out an Amazon branded tablet? I think it's the latter. I've said this in the past, outside of iTunes and the iOS ecosystem, Amazon has the pieces to compete with Apple. Amazon has video, music, books, and the millions of credit cards of shoppers worldwide.

This is getting exciting in the tablet market, despite what Jeff is saying.
