Did Kindle price drop result from PVI’s buy of E Ink?

“Amazon appears to be the beneficiary of Prime View International’s acquisition of E-Ink. The deal, announced last month, aligns Kindle’s assembler—Prime View—with the maker of the device’s screens (E-Ink). Put them together and it only makes sense that Amazon get a better price.” Source of this hypothesis is Goldman Sachs analyst James Mitchell.
If this happened, what does it mean for PVI’s prices to other hardware vendors relying on it?
