Three Kindle Fire 2 Tablets are Underway as Reported

Based on the statement of NPD DisplaySearch, several new Kindle Fire tablets are going to make a debut soon. At least three models of Kindle Fire 2 will be brought out.

According to the analyst, the Kindle Fire 2 will be used to complete with Google Nexus 7, and even surpass Nexus 7.

The information comes from sources in the "supply chain" -- a collection of companies that manufacture components and assemble products.
●7-inch Kindle Fire 2: 1,024x600 display, no camera; August production.
●7-inch Kindle Fire 2: 1,280x800 display with camera; August production.
●7-inch Kindle Fire 2: 1,280x800 display with camera and 4G; September production.
●8.9-inch Kindle Fire 2: With 1,920x1,200 display; Q4 production.

It seems that it is unlikely to reveal 10-inch Kindle Fire, at least not so soon.

Because the supply chain is dynamic -- based on orders received from brands like Amazon and Apple -- the status can change from month to month.

If the supply chain information is accurate, the Kindle Fire would trump the Nexus 7 by adding 4G and a higher resolution 1,920x1,200 display. Like the Nexus 7, the new Kindle Fires will have displays that boast pixel densities of 216 pixels per inch (PPI), according to Shim.

While this falls short of the 264 PPI on the third-generation iPad, anything above 200 is considered competitive. The original Kindle Fire had a PPI of about 170.

There was no information immediately available from DisplaySearch on pricing or processors. Current speculation calls for either Texas Instruments OMAP processors or Nvidia's widely used quad-core Tegra 3 chip.

Anyway, let's wait and see what will be released finally.
