That’s right. This could be the next gen Kindle Fire tablet Amazon, which is expected to be announced at the giant online retailer’s event on September 6th. Amazon has recently revealed that its Kindle Fire tablet, is now sold out, but still holds a 22% share of the Android tablet market. The first gen Kindle Fire had a great run, and it seems Amazon wants to make that run even longer. Today, the folks over The Verge website have received an image, and the source is claiming that it is a press shot of the new Kindle Fire. According to the source, Amazon is prepping two Kindle Fires for this year – a 7-inch and a 10-inch one.
If we are really looking at the brand new Kindle Fire, you can observe it is sporting a brand new design and heavy skin also seems to be changed. Good news is that it is not striking resemblance to the BlackBerry Playbook, as the first Kindle Fire did. There are a set of software keys along the right side of the tablet and a front camera placed at the top. The next gen Kindle Fire is expected to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS on the board.
Amazon launched Kindle Fire last year for an affordable price tag of $199. Here is the real question. Can we expect that version to arrive at that same price? What do you guys think? Should Apple come up with an affordable iPad Mini tablet very soon? Can it dominate the recently launched $249 Google Nexus 7? Could this be the next-gen Kindle Fire?
