More evidence surfaces of a larger Kindle Fire in 2012
We’ve already heard from various sources tips and bits about a larger Kindle Fire coming this year, and now a developer briefed with Amazon’s plans confirmed this for the NY Times.
Along with the new, bigger Kindle Fire Amazon is preparing the second 7-inch fire, according to analysts. The company, of course, declined any official comments.
Last year, Amazon’s 7-inch tablet opened a niche that has grown hugely since its launch in mid-November. That niche is the one of affordable tablets. The Kindle Fire offered contemporary specs for the time with a price of $199, but with the tradeoff being a heavily customized version of Android.
Now, with Google entering the space with the Nexus 7 and Apple’s rumored upcoming iPad mini, can Amazon succeed with its new generation of Fire tablets? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Eh, I disagree. I believe you will start seeing tablets come with 4GB of RAM in 2013. I mean we are already seeing smartphones with 2GB of RAM (i.e. GSIII). So, I don't think we are that far off from seeing tablets come with 4GB of RAM. Also, the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet may very well come with 4GB of RAM, though I have yet to find any articles saying exactly the amount it will come with.

If they can pull off a Quad Core Processor+Jelly Bean, they might have a chance...

And if they don't completely mask Android like they did with the Fire

Well the fact that I would buy any of the Kindle Fire series before I would ever own another iPad means they're doing something right. Although, I'm a niche market...
