The Next Kindle Fire Would be Released This Year
Over the past few months, Amazon has made billion dollars worth of sales with the Kindle Fire tablet. This is a good enough reason for them to start working on a bigger and much better version of the tablet. Recently, a few rumors begin to wander around saying that the next generation Kindle Fire or the Kindle Fire 2 is in the works. Current owners of Amazon Kindle Fire could upgrade to a larger device this year. Other rumors offer hints about what we should expect from the upcoming device.
Some news websites reported that the tablet will support Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor and a huge 10″ display. Observers expect the tablet to enter the market quite soon as Amazon has already placed early orders for bigger chassis.
Other rumors suggested that the tablet would come out in a couple if months, so it is a good thing for current owners of Kindle Fire to mark their calendars for the arrival of the tablet on May or June this year. As always, it is important to note that these are still rumors and details could change.
Amazon customers began receiving the original Kindle Fire on the middle of November last year and the tablet was sold rapidly at a rate of one million units per week. The tablet uses a heavily modified version of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread and it is quite likely that the next Kindle Fire will use a customized version of the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Amazon also removes Google Play from its tablet as a way to ensure high degree of compatibility with the highly customized operating system. Recently an unofficial version of Ice Cream Sandwich has been ported for Kindle Fire, allowing users to obtain complete services offered by Google as well as remove the tablet from Amazon’s network.
