The original Kindle Fire has been very successful on the tablet market, holding the 2nd spot, after Apple’s iPad. It has been also the 7-inch best seller and it’s clear that Amazon is working on a second version, to compete with Google’s Nexus 7, which comes with better specs.
We’ve seen many rumors about the Kindle Fire 2 lately and some even say that Amazon is planning to release multiple devices with various sizes. The original Kindle Fire has been released on September 28, 2011, and it’s about the time for a next-gen tablet.
According to some, Amazon has already sent invites for the September 6 event, where the company will probably release their new devices. They will probably release a 7-inch Kindle Fire 2 on par with the Google Nexus 7 or even better, because the original one can’t compete with it due to its specs.
At their event we might also see a new line of Kindle e-readers, though we are focused more on smart devices, and those readers will probably remain basically the way they are right now.
The tablet market competition has become harsh lately, though Apple doesn’t seem to move from the 1st spot very soon, despite the fact that there are literally hundreds of competitors. Until now no company has managed to get their tablets noticed, excepting for Amazon with their Kindle Fire and Samsung with the Galaxy Tab.
