Sources told BGR that Amazon is working on three new tablets that will see their launch during the holiday season this year. One of the said tablets will be a 7-inch Kindle Fire that will sport a 1280 x 800 display resolution, significantly better than the 1024 x 600-pixel resolution of the current Kindle Fire tablet.
The last but not the least among the reported tablets is an upgraded version of the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD. Unlike the existing 8.9-inch model, the new tablet is said to come with a mind-boggling 2560 x 1600 resolution. If this is true, then the tablet would certinainly diss the iPad's 2048 x 1536 resolution.
But sources added that the new Kindle Fire tablets will not just be about having better resolutions. For example, one source notes that the new models will sport a more angular design with a fat slope to the edges and chiseled corners. Also, the power and volume buttons are said to be located at the "sloping area on the case-back and they are positioned to avoid accidental button presses when a tablet is placed on its back."
