More images of the upcoming new Amazon Kindle Fire surface: coming with Skype support
The Amazon Kindle Fire really was the device that opened the $200 tablet niche that is booming right now with Google’s entry there with the Nexus 7. Now, the time has come for the second-generation Kindle Fire to show its answer to that new competition and just before its launch we have another big leak of images showing a front facing camera and Skype integration on board.

Confirming yesterday’s rumor, those images show a slightly redesigned 7-inch tablet with a cleaner and more refined interface in darker tones but retaining the feel of the original Kindle UI on top of Android.

Check out those images to see what the next Fire will probably look like. So far there’s no additional information about the possibility of a 10-inch Kindle Fire launching on September 6th when Jeff Bezos will host the biggest Amazon event for the year.

it better come with Jelly Bean because the Fire never got one Android Update and remained on Gingerbread until it was succeeded.

It's interesting what OS KF2 will use. I guess Amazon will fork ICS as it's too late for them to use JB. W/o JB it's tough for KF2 to compete with N7 and even with JB KF2 still lacks such essential features as Google Now.

KF2 can compete on price and then there's not much room for Amazon.

kindle will use android OS but no android and google services...

i think amazon should make its own OS teaming with LiMo foundation.... since their tablets wont run android apps and google services.. and since they got a pretty decent ecosystem.. i tihnk its time for them to make their own OS and put that ecosystem on the OS!!

open source but with some close source...
