Amazon May Release Two Kindle Fire 2 Models


Amazon has announced that it will hold an event on September 6 in Santa Monica, California. Many industry pundits are already guessing that this event will be an announcement of new Kindle products.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon is going to launch two Kindle Fire tablets during the event. Following the strategy it used with the Kindle e-book readers. The two models will be a regular one and one that is ad-supported. The ad-supported Kindle Fire model will reportedly be sold at a price that is much lower than the $199 price of the original Kindle Fire. With the current ad-supported platform for the Kindle e-book reader, the ad-supported model is $30 cheaper than the regular model.

The speculation is that the new Kindle Fire will have significant hardware improvements like a faster processor, a camera (which has been requested by consumers), an HDMI port and even actual volume buttons.

The second generation Kindle Fire will likely compete head to head with the newly released Google Nexus 7, which Is enjoying a lot of attention right now.

On the other hand, the 10.1 inch Kindle Fire that has been the subject of a lot of rumors in the past looks like it’s not going to become a reality, at least for the immediate future. There are indications that the plan to release a Kindle Fire model that will directly compete with the Apple iPad has been indefinitely shelved.
