Seattle - is reportedly optimizing its website for tablet computers.

The new design, which is gradually being rolled out, has a larger search bar, fewer buttons for a streamlined look, and places digital content ahead of physical merchandise on the home page, several published reports indicate.

It is believed that the updated layout was developed to improve the shopping experience for users of Apple's best-selling iPad, and in anticipation of Amazon's own long-rumored Kindle tablet, which is expected this fall.

Web accounts compare the device's physical design to Research In Motion's Playbook tab, and suggest that a 6GB version will be released in November for $250.
