As is already well known, there is a new Kindle Fire waiting to be unleashed on Sept 6 and rumors are certainly flying thick and fast. Already there seem to be certain changes in the story. For instance, a 10 inch sized Kindle Fire variant does not seem likely now and a generation upgrade of the Kindle Fire is the probable choise. As per CNET, there will be two Kindle Fire tablets (both 7 inches) and one of them would bear close resemblance to the ones they had launched last year. The OS however will probably be Android 4.0 ICS, and bear a lower price tag compared to the last year’s model.
Verge had also released some pictures that are supposed to be of the upcoming Kindle Fire. Ultimately, the first gen Kindle Fire will be tweaked with an OS upgrade to Android ICS along with a few other enhancements. It may be priced lower to ensure it continues to be in demand. The Kindle Fire had gone on to be the bestseller at Amazon and the retail giant has always been a champion with its pricing strategy. As for the new Kindle Fire, better hardware design (like thinner bezels) and better internals (like a powerful processor) is almost a surety.
