Will there really be THREE Amazon Kindle Fire 2 models?

amazon-kindle-fire-tablet.jpgWe all breathed a sigh of relief when we found out the Amazon Kindle Touch had finally been given a UK release date, but where oh where is Amazon’s tablet, the Kindle Fire?!

Well it seems while we sit and wait for it there are lots of rumours flying around the web about its sequel, which may come in not one, not two, but three different versions.

Despite the fact previous rumours had suggested the next Kindle Fire would come in 10 and 7 inch models, numerous Taiwanese publications are now contradicting that, stating that the Kindle Fire 2 will come in an 8.9 inch size and two slightly differing 7 inch models instead.

The main difference between the two 7 inch versions is said to be screen resolutions: an entry level model will kick off proceedings with a 1024 x 600 resolution, with the mid-range model offering a 1280 x 800 screen.

Moving up to the 8.9 incher, it’ll be Amazon’s top of the line model, offering a full HD screen resolution, with only the new iPad offering more impressive display tech from within a teeny tablet.

Of course, as ever, it’s all rumour and speculation at this point. But should the rumours regarding the HD 8.9 incher prove true, the Retina Display of the latest iPad may have a new, cut price rival quite soon.

    Now at this time, nobody actually has got their hands on the Kindle fire so there is no real reviews out there. Anybody that says otherwise is flat out lying. I have however done extensive research on the upcoming device and I believe that the Kindle fire is going be a real contender in the tablet market space. Not only is the Kindle already a very popular device used worldwide, but they have just stepped their game up and can now truly compete with android, apple and blackberry devices.

    Looking at all the factors of the economy, the holidays around the corner and the ever increasing demands for tablets, the Kindle may have come in at just the right time. So looking at the features above, what does the iPad have that the Kindle doesn't? Sure, I know you apple fans can come up with a mile long list. But how important are those items when you have all the advanced media functions on the Kindle. Besides, there is always the amazon app place where you can download all types of applications.
