The new Google Nexus 7 which was released recently is the currently the best tablet available in the market. However, soon after the launch of 2nd generation Nexus 7, Amazon announced the arrival of new Kindle Fire tablets. It means Amazon is not going to launch just one device but it has got couple of new Kindle Fire devices under its sleeves.
The new line of Kindle Fire tablets will be sporting a different kind of display which will offer higher resolution. It will also come with high performance CPUs. According to a recent report, Amazon will be launching newer editions of Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD. Both the devices will be priced lower than the recently released Google Nexus 7.
Kindle Fire tablets from Amazon are available in three different variants namely, 7inch Kindle Fire, 7inch Kindle Fire HD and 8.9inch Kindle Fire HD. So, we can understand that Amazon will be releasing upgraded versions of all the three devices.
The current Kindle Fire HD which has got a display resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels will be replaced by a newer Kindle Fire HD with a display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The current 8.9inch Kindle Fire HD which has got a display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels will be replaced by a newer 8.9inch Kindle Fire HD with a display resolution of 2560x 1600 pixels. So, we can also expect that the low end 7 inch Kindle Fire that has 1024 x 600 pixels will be replaced by a Kindle Fire that has 1280 x 800 pixels.
The new line of Kindle Fire devices is not just about better displays but it also about enhanced performance. The new HD tablets will be powered with quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and 2GB RAM. Like always, the new Kindle Fire devices will run on modified edition of Android that will come with support for Amazon App Store.
The forthcoming Kindle Fire devices will allow users to connect to the internet over dualband Wi-Fi. With Dolby Audio speakers onboard, users will be able to enjoy listening to music and watching movies on the new Kindle Fire variants. Like before, the Kindle Fire devices will continue to offer 10 or higher hours of battery life.
The new Silk internet browser powered with Amazon Cloud server will also be available on the new tablets. Each of the new Kindle Fire tablets will be available in three storage variants namely, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB.
Amazon is yet to release exact info on the specs of the forthcoming Kindle Fire tablets. However, going by the recent rumors, we can feel that the new tablets from Amazon surely appear to be very promising. Also, Amazon is yet to release info on the price of these devices. If the cost of the new tablets is somewhat similar to that Google Nexus 7 and current line-up, one should consider buying the new Kindle Fire tablet.
