Front company and OEM for Amazon Kindle is…

In case anyone cares to know who the OEM and front for Kindle are then listen (look closely, read closely…er… whatever) closely. Thanks to tipster John H. for doing a bit of snooping on the FCC because he’s uncovered a few secrets about Amazon’s e-book. The front is Payne LLC. based out of Delaware who requested a confidentiality agreement on October 31. The test reports reveal that the Kindle is manufactured by Hon Hai Precision Ind. Co., Ltd. in Taiwan and was tested on July 8. The report talks about EVDO and SAR (specific absorption rate), which has nothing to do with tampons, so there it is. Mystery solved.

The EUT supports IS95 2G networks, CDMA 2000 1X RTT ,and 1xEVDO Rev. 0 for Cellular band and PCS
band. The maximum output power is chosen for EMC and SAR testing for worst case scenario. A full EMC
measurement in this report is done in CDMA2000 1XEV-DO mode with the uplink data rate 38.4kbps for Cellular
band, and CDMA 1X RTT FCH_RC1 for PCS band 1900.
