Leaks from April and earlier this month
suggested that Amazon was very keen on launching an Android-powered set top box under the Kindle brand, sometime before the busy holiday sales season. But now anonymous sources tell The Verge
that the box has been delayed, and "possibly" won't make that holiday deadline. The device, which is being aimed directly at the Roku and Apple TV, should make its debut sometime in 2014. Amazon's keen to have a hardware product that helps further advertise the company's streaming video library, and by proxy the Amazon Prime subscription service.
