Amazon lines up magazine publishers for Kindle Fire tablet Amazon has reportedly finalized deals to offer digital versions of magazines from three of the four major US publishers on their upcoming tablet.
Hearst, Conde Nast and Meredith have all reached agreements with Amazon. The lone houldout is Time Inc.

Comparing Amazon to Apple, one publisher told AllThingsD, "You've got beauty and design with Apple, which we love. But with Amazon you have marketing, and ease of use. We?re very optimistic."

Ironically, magazine publishers appear to be looking at the opportunity much like book publshers did Apple when the iPad came out. They see an Amazon tablet as a necessary competitor for the iPad.

Amazon's tablet, believed to be called the Kindle Fire, is expected to be announced at a media event tomorrow.
