Amazon wants to be a BIG player in mobile ads

Good luck cutting through the corporate jargon on this job posting. But my takeaway is that Amazon is very serious about becoming a leader in mobile advertising.

Given Amazon’s apparent disregard for maximizing profits, I wonder if a mostly or completely ad-supported Kindle tablet is possible. Could a Kindle Fire with Special Offers launch for $99 this year? Or an ad-supported phone?
