Amazon streaming video box reportedly delayed

First it was Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), now it's Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN). According to multiple reports, the e-commerce giant's rumored plans to introduce an online video set-top box have been pushed back to next year.

Last week The Verge cited "sources" and reported that the box, which would run a version of Google's (Nasdaq: GOOG) Android operating system similar to Fire OS, had been delayed past a targeted introduction date of this fall. Then "industry sources" told AllThingsD that Amazon is now looking to launch the device in 2014 instead.

Amazon has yet to admit that it's actually planning such a device, but the company has reportedly discussed a potential partnership with Intel. Whether those discussions move forward or have anything to do with the reported delays for Amazon's box is unknown.
