Latest rumors and reports have equally failed to clarify details of the upcoming Amazon tablet, to be launched in the coming months. While most people seem to understand that we should expect the Kindle Fire 2, opinions differ when it comes to the size of this future device. Recent news talk about Amazon preparing an 8.9-inch Kindle as a follow-up to the Kindle Fire; however, today’s rumors would rather agree on a future 10-inch tablet. If reports turn out to be true, Amazon will compete directly with Apple’s iPad, at least in the size department (as Amazon’s main ammunition against Apple is the Kindle’s price point).
No details are yet available concerning technical specs. Foxconn, on the other hand, will allegedly manufacture this larger tablet which will be ready for a summer release and will hopefully help Amazon reduce its manufacturing costs in order for the company to finally see some profits coming. However, with the iPad 3 reportedly just around the corner (next month), we don’t believe users will keep their money waiting for a tablet that may or may not exist (even if it’s a follow-up to the popular Kindle Fire).
