On Amazon's big press event in September, this company most likely introduce their new Kindle Fire. There are also rumors that Amazon would unvild its first smartphone with their star product, even a new lineup of readers is going to join the Kindle Touch and classic Kindle. Both the Kindle Touch and Touch 3G are listed as "out of stock" on Amazon website since this Monday. It's undeniable that new device may join the Fire while Kindle Touch is eliminated from lineup.
The latest rumors in June 2012, point to three Kindle Fire 2 (probably won't be "Kindle Fire 2") models, a 7-inch, an 8.9 inch, and a 10 inch version. The bigger 10-inch Kindle Fire 2 is reportedly codenamed "Hollywood" which will be based on the Nvidia Tegra 3, bringing a screaming quad-core processor with a 500% performance increase.
Additionally, the device is said to include a HDMI-out port, front-facing camera, and a microUSB port. Sources say that the e-reader will display at a 1280 x 800 resolution, and will now have a metal casing around its body.
The new Kindle Fire will be priced at the same level as the current Kindle Fire, $199. Then, the old model may drops to $149.
Like the original Kindle Fire, the new Kindle Fire won't support office documents directly. If you want to play Microsoft PowerPoint on Kindle Fire 2, the best way is converting powerpoint to video, keeping everything from been modified.
