New Kindle Fire months from production?

kindle fire

 

BGR is claiming that the next Kindle Fire is only months from production, and that it’s poised to be bigger, badder, and a whole lot faster.

Rumor has it that the new Fire will bring a 10-inch display to the table, and pack a nice NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core. It’s supposedly launching sometime during the second quarter of this year. Amazon hasn’t actually said anything to this effect, but DigiTimes has leaked that Amazon ordered a chassis for the new device from Catcher in Taiwan. That’s all that we know at this point, so it could be the next Kindle Fire, or just a big hoax cooked up by someone to keep us busy. More on this as it develops.

I don’t know about you, but I certainly enjoyed the first Kindle Fire. Is anyone planning on picking up this quad-core piece of Amazon goodness if/when it drops? Sound off in the comments!

    I really wonder what the price of the Kindle Fire 2 will be. I found quite a few interesting articles online and generally I don’t think they will overkill with the price tag. If it stays withing a $100 range from the previous kindle, then it will be worth looking into…

    A 10″ Kindle Fire has been in the rumor mill for about a year and given the rumor mill track record I take everything with a grain of salt. I don’t see the demand for a high power, high priced processor, Amazon is not trying to compete with Apple or Samsung.  My guess is that a color e-ink display makes more sense since it will hold down the cost and have a long battery life.  The new display would explain why it is taking time to get this into production.
