The Kindle Fire follow-up is highly anticipated and this has probably everything to do with the cornucopia of rumors around this tablet. Last we heard of the Kindle Fire 2, a report was convinced that Amazon will skip the 8.9-inch form-factor and go for a 10.1-inch built instead. We also heard reports of the tablet being launched in the third quarter.
Falling nicely into place is another report, this time coming from Cnet’s “source”, according to which July 31 is the date to circle in your calendar if you are interested in the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 launch date. Other specs reported include physical hardware buttons for volume control and one camera, in addition to the same 8GB internal storage.
Of course, these specs might change at any time since today Google is expected to unveil it’s new Android platform dubbed Jelly Bean on the company’s first ever Nexus tablet built by Asus. Amazon might tweak the specs and price-point depending on what Google has planned for today.
