Amazon preps next-generation Kindle Fire tablets [Rumor]

Amazon preps next-generation Kindle Fire tablets [Rumor]

BGR reports that the largest Interent retailer is prepping a slew of tablets that would in any way threaten the iPad's disposition in the market.

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.

Yes, there will also be a new Kindle Fire HD, sources say, that will feature a whopping 1920 x 1200-pixel resolution which will presumably run smooth on a 7-inch display.

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."

When asked for a statement regarding the rumors, Amazon declined to comment.
