Jul 09, 2012

Looking to keep up with new tablets arriving on the market, there are reports that Amazon's Kindle Fire 2 could arrive as soon as this month, according to Wired. China Times reported that Amazon has already ordered two million of the new Fire's from Quanta. Kindle Fire 2 will likely come with a new metal casing, as opposed to the plastic casing on the first iteration. 

Another upgrade for the new Kindles will likely be different screen size options. There is speculation that Kindle Fire 2 will have screen sizes of 7 inches, 8.9 inches and 10 inches. The new 10-inch Kindle Fire is expected to come with a quad-core chip, a micro USB port, a front-facing camera, and an HDMI-out port.
