New Amazon Kindle Fire(s) leak out: new design, 7- and 10-inch models likely
By now, it seems that the upcoming 7-inch second-gen Kindle Fire will feature a brand new design. At least this time it won’t be a generic reference design as last year’s Fire that was largely based on the TI OMAP 4 reference platform. Allegedly, though, it won’t be any flashier, but still a plain plastic box.
The big news is that the heavy skin Amazon uses in the Kindle Fire has changed and become more streamlined, allegedly with less “chrome.” Check out the image below - it doesn’t look all that pretty, but what if Amazon decided to cut the price even further with this new model? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

What did I say on the other article? They are saying that the Kindle Fire is SOLD OUT so they can hype the new Kindle Fire successor! Just on cue! lol

Did anyone notice that this isnt the same aspect ration as the first gen fire? Looks very ipadish in shape.

i dont really get it... why will amazon use android OS but it doesnt even look like android? not even android apps...
i think amazon should make its own OS..partner with linux foundation and creat ur own OS.. you got a great ecosystem...
or i think amazon should buy RIM BlackBerry...buy or partner with them... and at least save RIM...
i wonder why PA still didnt post this... amazon is teaming up with nokia to bring nokia maps to amazon kindle
just change 'dot' to '.'

haha more like a HP touchPad... but i do hope that they will do the same marketing... :P
i mean how will a kindle stand up if google nexus 7 offers the same and far superior to kinde fire? what will be the OS of the kindle gonna be? and android rip off again?
but if they team up with BlackBerry and make a kindle with RIM hardware..it will make more sense to me than making an android device that is not android...

The OS isn't and Android rip off . Its a customized version of Android . Its Amazon's UI

its a rip off or Amazon UI..still the same.. no google service service..no android apps..no google maps.. i've read that amazon will use nokia maps... so it is an android rip off with no signs of being an android!!
