Amazon declared its first Kindle Fire tablet on September 2011 and it was launched in November. From then there have been rumors surfaced about release date, specs and price concerning an upgraded edition of this well accepted tablet, called Kindle Fire 2 or kindle fire 2nd generation.
Kindle Fire 2 Release Date
Some days ago we found that 2 different models of Kindle Fire 2 will be release in this summer, having metal coatings and stylish appearance. That exacting rumor recommended that Amazon will reveal a 7- and a 10-inch tablet in a close date and made conflict with earlier rumors that asserted Amazon will as well introduce an 8.9-inch Kindle Fire 2 tablet together with the 7- and 10-inch models.
To make us more mystify, recently we have one more rumor that stating 4 different models of Kindle Fire 2 tablet will introduce this year by Amazon; three of them are 7-inch models and another one is 8.9-inch tablet. The report approaches from NPD DisplaySearch forecaster Richard Shim, who observes the following features and release schedule for upcoming 4 different models of Kindle Fire 2 -
|Size||Screen resolution||Camera||4G||Release Date|
|Model # 1||7-inch||1024X600||-||-||August|
|Model # 2||7-inch||1280X800||Yes||-||August|
|Model # 3||7-inch||1280X800||Yes||Yes||September|
|Model # 4||8.9-inch||1920X1200||Yes||-||Q4|
Shim received these features and release schedule from supply chain sources; however that doesn’t essentially indicate Amazon will really release four Kindle Fire 2 tablets. But the report establishes the reality of superior resolution of Kindle Fire 2 and August launch schedule as talked previously.
Kindle Fire 2 Specs
Upcoming Kindle Fire 2 tablet will hold a camera with bodily volume control systems, but there was no detail on whether Bluetooth will be attached or not. Several of rumors indicated that Amazon was preparing to bring three new 7 inch and one 8.9 inch model for upcoming Kindle Fire 2. The dissimilarity among the three 7-inch tablets will be exclusively on screen resolution – one 7-inch tablet is anticipated to aspect a 1024 X 600 pixel screen resolution, another one will include a 1280 X 800 pixel screen resolution and one last will include 1280 X 800 pixel screen resolution with 4G capabilities . In difference, the 8.9-inch will include an HD display with 1920 X 1200 pixel screen resolution. No other features have identified now, but if the anticipated specs are correct for the 8.9-inch model with HD display, it will be a good rival of new iPad.
Kindle Fire 2 Price
The anticipated price of the new tablet will be around $249 for 7-inch and $299 for the 8.9-inch version. It is logical that the kindle fire 2 value will be moved up caused by the boost in features.
