New Amazon Kindle Fire rumored to have 10 inch screen, quad-core Tegra 3 processor

DigiTimes announced that Amazon had placed an order for chassis from the Catcher Technologies plant in Taizhou, China.We take this with the usual grain of salt, including the estimate that Catcher's gross margin will be 40% on the order. If true, this could be the signal to expect a new tablet to start undergoing production within the next few months.
Most likely, Amazon will continue to price the device low enough to attract sales, offering the tablet as a loss leader with the company making the big bucks by offering content, apps and cloud based storage to users. Earlier this month, we passed along to you word that Amazon would have a 10.1 inch Amazon Kindle Fire along with an updated 7 inch model in the lineup by the second half of this year. At this point, it appears that the larger sized tablet will get first crack at the public this year.

iPad 1 costs $210 to make, ipad 3 costs $332, apple never lowered the price not once lol but i am shocked they didnt raise their price considering they have actually had to put in better parts due to competition and they are the ones taking the hit! Anyways, kindle fire 10.1 will costs a little over $300 to make and they will sell it at $299, you heard it hear first :)

unlike other markers, Amazon will not have a very high resolution tablet yet, just because there is not enough content for it. Plus, Amazon's store itself has not fully jumped on the high res bandwagon so it will take time for them to do that. I assume it will just be better but offer much of the same value in a bigger screen size.
