Amazon Buys Touchco, a multitouch screen company

Amazon has acquired Touchco, a touchscreen technology startup based in New York. No financial terms were given, but according to the report, Amazon will merge the New York University spinout’s technology and staff (about six people) into its Kindle hardware division, Lab126, based in Cupertino, CA. There is strong speculation that Amazon plans to add touchscreen capabilities to its Kindle e-reader device, in part to compete with Apple’s iPad.
