A Bigger Kindle Fire Seen in 2012
After its release earlier this month of the Kindle Fire, reports see Amazon planning a bigger version of the tablet next year.
Andrew Couts, a blogger for Digital Times, cited an article by DigiTimes that suggested that Amazon should be releasing an 8.9 inch Kindle Fire in the second quarter of 2012. This information came from an anonymous industry insider who had knowledge of the production plans.
By producing a 8.9" model, Amazon would avoid direct competition with other iPad alternatives and put it closer to the size of the iPad itself.
