Amazon Announces New Kindle Fire

There have been plenty of rumors suggesting what Amazon might have up its sleeve for release this fall. We’ve talked about a new seven-inch Kindle Fire, the possibility for a much larger Kindle Fire, as well as a possible Amazon smartphone.

There’s going to be new front-lit Kindle, the Kindle Paperwhite, but we’re more concerned with what Amazon might have for us in something a little more Android-y.

The new Fire will have a full gigabyte of RAM, up from last year’s 512MB, a new processor, and will sell for $159 starting September 14.
