More images of Amazon Kindle Fire 2 leak out
This coming Thursday, Amazon will be holding a press event and the subject is expected to be the introduction of the sequel model to the popular Amazon Kindle Fire. The original model sold out last week, according to Amazon, and in the 9 months that it was available the tablet took a 22% share of the tablet market based on data from the online retailer.

Speculation that a version of the Amazon Kindle Fire with a 10 inch screen would be announced at the event was shot down late Friday with talk that there will be two models introduced, but both will have 7 inch screens. One is a lower priced model with a new UI and the other is a higher priced model with more storage, a camera, faster processor, physical volume controls and an HDMI port. That could be the model in these leaked photos because a front-facing shooter is visible. A front-facing microphone for video chats can also be seen in the pictures.

Amazon faces more challenges this holiday season with competition from its fellow low priced tablet, the Google Nexus 7. Last year, the device had the holiday season practically all to itself in the low priced category .
