Recent rumors – that need to be taken with caution – say that the second generation of Amazon’s popular Kindle Fire will come not in one, but in two sizes, a 7-inch model and a 10-inch one – previously believed to be a 8.9-inch tab –, and they will be launched in the second half of this year. No other details are available, but the Kindle Fire 2 is rumored to contain lower-priced internals. The same source also speculates that the shopping giant will shift their focus from E-book readers and concentrate instead on tablets. If confirmed, this should come as no, big, surprise, given the fact that Amazon already holds 14% of tablets market and shipped almost 4 million Kindle Fire units in the last quarter of the last year.

It is also said that Amazon already reduced orders for E-Ink’s e-paper products and this should be the main cause for EIH’s 4% revenues drop this month. The production of the 10-inch model will seemingly be outsourced to Quanta Computer and Foxconn Electronics.
