Here’s the first look at next Kindle Fire

Amazon has an event scheduled for September 6 where it’s widely assumed they will debut the new Kindle Fire.  Seeing as how the initial model is completely sold out and the Amazon Appstore now has European support, things certainly appear to be lining up for something big.

The Verge has received a pair of images for what is said to be the next Kindle Fire.  Unfortunately, only one of those pictures is online right now as the source has requested they sit tight. So what do we see here?

For starters, the screen aspect and keyboard size suggest a 7-inch 1280×800 display however that’s just a guess.  When held in landscape mode we see a front-facing camera, something that did not make its way into the first model.

According to The Verge, the second image shows a more streamlined user interface with “less chrome” however they are not certain if this is final design.  What’s more, they also indicate that a 10-inch model is expected at the announcement next week.  As to pricing and release time frame, that’s still a big mystery.

Yay or Nay?

What do you think of the new Kindle Fire?  Sure, it’s a first-take impression, but what do you like or dislike?
