Amazon could potentially be spinning off its Kindle Fire business into a separate company called Seesaw, reports Fusible.
This comes from looking up the trademark filings for Kindle Fire and Kindle Silk — they’re registered to Seesaw, LLC, not Amazon. Check it out on the USPTO’s site here.
This doesn’t conclusively indicate a split, though. CNN writer Mark Millian tweeted that just because the trademarks are filed to a different company doesn’t mean there’s a split happening.
The trademark for Magic Trackpad is registered to a company called Slate Computing, for example.
UPDATE: One of our commenters points out below that “Amazon probably got the trademark months ago and got it under a different name to hide the fact they were working on a new tablet.” Very feasible explanation.
