A new Kindle Fire HD may be on its way
You should probably know that when a big manufacturer of devices of some sort makes a big promotion he probably wants to get rid of some of the already produced stock in order to make space for the newly developed one.
The Kindle Fire HD, 7-inch model, surprisingly somewhat, has just been reduced in price by $40 and we are thinking that what is happening to the Kindle is the same operation that has taken place over and over again. Simply, make space for a newer device to appear on the market.
While you may think that such a price reduction is not a big one, you would be wrong because at this current price such reduction is a huge step for a company to make. For now we are told by Amazon that this is a limited offer only so we are not expecting it to stay around for long but Amazon could be making an effort to sell their Kindle Fire HD at a discounted price because they know that they have serious problems all because the new Nexus 7 is receiving a lot of attention because it has much better specs now.
In our opinion these are the signs of new Kindle Fire HD 2nd generation release, which cannot be quick enough but the current version is aging faster than it should. Kindle Fire HD 2 is already expected as Amazon probably knows that a simple price drop will not help sales. If the rumors about the specs of the new expected Amazon tablet are true then the 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor of the dual-core variety and a clock speed of 2GHz will allow Amazon to become much more influential player on the tablet market and it will be able to compete with the big guys.
