Amazon's Android-based set-top coming next month? According to industry sources, Amazon's oft-rumored streaming set-top box could launch next month.
The device will directly compete with Roku, Apple TV, WD Live and others in the now crowded set-top market.

Amazon has been allegedly working on the box since the start of 2013, with the original plan to release it for the holiday season before it was eventually delayed.

The box will be based on Android, but will also likely use a variant similar to the company's Kindle Fire line of tablets.

There have also been rumors that the box could be gaming-centric, due to Amazon hiring game developers and even buying a gaming studio.

Amazon has never confirmed the existence of the set-top.
