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.
