Rumors, Tablets


The Amazon Kindle Fire is one of the better selling Android tablets as a result of its low entry price and deep integration with Amazon products and services.  The giant online retail company looks to keep the train rolling with a high-end 10.1 inch Kindle Fire tablet featuring a faster, quad-core processor.  The rumored 10.1 inch tablet is expected to launch in Q3 of 2012, according to a Digitimes report.

Amazon is gearing for a fight against Apple, and feels a 10.1 tablet up their sleeves will sell more than an 8.9 inch tablet.  Previously, Amazon planned to launch a 8.9 inch Kindle Fire, but that tablet has reportedly been suspended in production.

Of course, there is no official word from Amazon on the matter; and there likely won’t be until we get closer to the third quarter.  However, there is a strong chance we will see an upgraded Kindle Fire model in the form of a 10 inch device come to the market in the near future.
