New Kindle Fire months from production?

New Kindle Fire months from production?

 

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.
