This could be the next Amazon Kindle Fire

This could be the next Amazon Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire, the 7-inch tablet with Android launched by for over a year, will be receiving an update in the coming days, exactly on September 6 in the Amazon event to be held in California, USA. This new version of the image would be attached, as received by filtration The Verge.

Strongly rumored to be launched simultaneously in two versions of 7 and 10 inch sizes that seem to standards accepted by the industry and users. Recall that the first version of the was released only a 7-inch version, so this 10-inch version would go on to compete in the segment of the iPad, which Apple leads with 68% of sales in the USA. Amazon has not done anything wrong with the Kindle Fire sales, accounting for 22% of sales in the U.S. and 5% globally.

If this photo is real (some people are questioning that is true) this new version of the Kindle would have front camera for video calls (the original version removed the camera to make it more affordable) while maintaining the same design simple, minimalist and in a sober black, but different in form, it would be thinner and lighter than the original version. Also said to have a WXGA (1280 x 800), as the tablet from Google , the Nexus 7.

It is hoped that this new enhanced version of the Kindle Fire is kept in the same price range than its predecessor (about $ 199), even if it means less income tablet to Amazon in exchange for a portion of the larger market, fair like Google with its Nexus 7 where earnings of a few dollars per tablet. The goal of both companies is obviously cut the broad domain that Apple has in the market with their iPads.
