What Could It Possibly Mean? Amazon Buy Touchscreen Company

I’m going to have to call in Scooby and the gang, because I can’t possibly figure out this mystery. Amazon has purchased touchscreen manufacturer Touchco, but has not clarified what it intends to do with the company. Touchco was reportedly working on low-cost touchscreens that work with transparent displays, and I can’t for the life of me figure out what Amazon would need with such a company…

But seriously, this news can only point to one thing: A new version of the Kindle with touchscreen support. Touchco’s technology reportedly supported multi-touch, so it really sounds like Amazon is heading at Apple head on. Will an Amazon App Store be far behind the launch of a new Kindle?
