Amazon to introduce new Amazon Kindle Fire on September 6th?
For some time we have been hearing about Amazon introducing a sequel to its highly popular Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. With a 7 inch screen and a low price of $199, Amazon started a category of such tablets including its top competitor at the moment, the Google Nexus 7. With Apple expected to throw its hat into the 7 inch ring as soon as next month, (7.85 inches to be precise), the Kindle Fire is going to be up against some serious competition which would make it a good time for the online retailer to introduce that oft-rumored sequel.

Will Amazon stick with the 7 inch market or is there also a larger tablet in the works? We should know for sure on September 6th when Amazon will host an event that it has sent out invitations to. Most likely the event will be used as a springboard to announce the sequel(s) to the Amazon Kindle Fire. That comes a day after the Motorola/Verizon event presumably to introduce the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the Nokia/Microsoft event at which the first two Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 models should be announced. If you're wondering why Amazon would risk having its announcement lost in the glow of the previous day's anticipated news, it all boils down to September 12th. Amazon would rather take its chances against the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the new Windows Phone models than having to go up against the Apple iPhone 5 and the Apple iPad mini in the media.

The Amazon Kindle Fire doesn't come with Google applications. While Amazon is said to take a loss on each tablet sold, they make it back by selling content, apps and cloud related storage space.

i dont really get it... why amazon will release a tablet with android on it? it will be cool if they release there own tablet OS like BlackBerry and Microsoft did the Playbook/BB10 and win8!!! if you want android ecosystem on your next e reader better buy a nexus with same functionality of the kindle.. coz the nexus's target is to replace the kindle... so its basically a very modern e reader!!
