Amazon has had success with their Kindle Fire tablet. The 7 inch Kindle Fire tablet had a wonderful holiday season a year ago, though sales have slowed down this year.

Rumors have been circulating that Amazon is developing a new 7 inch Kindle Fire and another 10 inch Kindle model.

The rumor says that Amazon is going to release these two tablets this summer.

Those rumors were quickly squashed by the Reuters report. Though those carried some facts, the release date is cleraly just a hearsay as summer is fast approaching and no official announcement has been released by Amazon.

Kindle Fire 2 by Amazon to sport a bigger screen size

Tablet manufacturers are racing to develop smaller devices to cut costs and produce a tablet for the mass market.

But Amazon is said to be going against the tide, as analysts have said that the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 will feature a screen that is bigger than its predecessor.

The Amazon Kindle Fire 2 is said to feature a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, compared to the 1024 x 600 pixel that the current Kindle Fire has. It would also feature a new aspect ratio that will change the shape of the screen.

This information comes from All Things D, which they say that the details come from Amazon developers.

All Things D also reported that the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 will sport a built-in camera and will be thinner and lighter than its predecessor.

Amazon is said to release the Kindle Fire 2 in the third quarter of this year.

The first version of the Kindle Fire never made it out of US shores. But Amazon is rumored to be distributing the Kindle Fire 2 worldwide to take on Apple’s rumored Apple iPad Mini and the Google Nexus 7.
