The next generation Amazon Kindle Fire tablet on the horizon
The next generation Amazon Kindle Fire tablet is getting ready to arrive real soon. At least this is the impression we get from the newest render shots that appeared on the internet through the famous @evleaks. The modern slate look nice, although it might be disappointing for those of who expected drastic change in the appearance of the model compared to its predecessors. The tablet from the image has rather vast bezels that make the device to look a bit bulky and with smaller display. The user interface and the Android platform reveal some improvements, like the new capability of the apps to support landscape mode. Another nice thing is the new possibility to scroll through the apps.
In terms of hardware, the new generation Amazon Kindle Fire does not bring some major improvements. The tablet will provide 7-inches screen with a resolution of 800x1280p. It will work with dual-core Cortex-A9 processor, ticking at 1.5GHz with TI OMAP 4470 chip and 1GB RAM. We have to admit that the silicon is not thrilling and will probably bring slightly better performance than the previous generation Amazon Kindle Fire.
The sources do not reveal further information about the launch date or the pricing of the tablet. As we know Amazon is focusing on providing low-cost low-end tablets that come with highly customized software by the company to sell services and products. So far this strategy seems to work well for Amazon. Latest rumors for the retailer suggest that it is planning to release a smartphone in the next year. The current price of the first Kindle Fire tablet is $159, down from $199 costs at launching. We can make the sure guess that the price for the new generation Amazon Kindle Fire will be in this range. How do you like the concept for the upcoming tablet?
