There’s still phase in support of new Kindle Fire rumors!
September 04, 2012, 8:30 AM — We’ve solitary got two new days to expend speculating on the subject of what did you say? Amazon is ready to illustrate us by the side of its Kindle dog and foal illustrate on Thursday. I’m in point of fact a crumb impressed by the side of how much drone near is around this event; granted it’s nowhere come up to the level of profit generated by some and each Apple event but what did you say? Is? Take Apple old hat of the equation and this Thursday’s Amazon press seminar is single of the nearly everyone talked on the subject of reveals this time.
Anyway, let’s persuade back to slogging through the rumors. The carry on phase we talked near was a question of whether or else not Amazon would be present introducing a 10″ tablet. According to the hive mind, the answer to with the aim of is rebuff, by the side of smallest amount not yet.
As a substitute, near preference be present not single but two new to the job 7″ Kindle Fire models by the side of the event. Single of them is a earlier, slimmer, sleeker, sexier Kindle Fire. How much earlier, slimmer and sleeker isn’t unambiguous, but it’s invented to cover a camera and an HDMI docks, plus a earlier mainframe of direction. For the most part it’s the subsequently generation Kindle Fire and it’ll in the past again cost $199. This is pretty much the device with the aim of everybody has been expecting since Amazon sent old hat the invites.
The other new to the job device is the equivalent of the carry on generation Kindle Fire (though expectantly a crumb thinner and lighter). This single preference be present ad-supported. For the most part it’s the Kindle Fire version of Kindle with Offers. Apparently each phase you wake the matter up you escort an classified ad, but in the past its conscious you’ll persuade rebuff expand ads. The penalty isn’t accepted but I’m guessing it’ll reach in the sphere of by the side of $99 or else $129. The side Street Journal has new details on the ad-supported Fire.
The event isn’t exactly on the subject of the Kindle Fires though. According to The Verge Amazon preference besides be present introducing a new to the job iteration of the Kindle link with. This single has integrated lighting and a new to the job “paperwhite” exhibit. Rebuff pricing has leaked.
So it sounds like Amazon is still alert on competing with Google and Barnes & good and isn’t standing by to get to leader to leader with the iPad yet. Though of direction Apple might be present on the subject of standing by to enter the 7-8″ tablet arena itself subsequently month.
It’ll be present attention-grabbing to escort if the new to the job Kindle Fire can bargain selected of the Nexus 7′s thunder. In the sphere of the meantime, rumors from the other wall of the battlelines propose with the aim of we may well escort a 3G-equipped Nexus 7 by October, though it isn’t unambiguous if this new to the job archetype is in the sphere of reply to Amazon or else if the timing is exactly coincidental.
