When the Kindle Fire 2 will be released and what we can expect?
The Amazon Kindle Fire 2 release date has been targeted to September 2012 and will feature larger 8.9 inch display and dual core Snapdragon S4 equivalent processor
After a successful launch of Amazon’s first Android tablet, the Kindle Fire, the company is already working on Kindle Fire successor the Kindle Fire 2. Amazon hasn’t confirmed the name of upcoming tablet but it is rumored to be called the Amazon Kindle Fire 2.
Amazon has to work hard to continue its successful journey in tablet market. Current Kindle Fire is the most popular Android tablet in the market and is the only real treat to the Apple iPad. Amazon hasn’t released data how many Kindle Fires sold since its launch last year but we know that it holds around 14 percent market share.
The price for upcoming Kindle Fire 2 will remain unchanged so it will cost $199. The price is important part in Kindle Fire successes and increasing price will dramatically affect sales. Right now the Kindle Fire is in safe position where other competitors can’t compete due to its low price and outstanding content that Amazon offers.
The Kindle Fire 2 specs are not important as the current version is not about specs but how well it deals with daily tasks and it does very well. The current model has the weakest specs in the market but it is built on a custom version of Android which is lighter and less power demanding so it runs smooth. It’s rumored that Kindle fire will get custom built dual-core Snapdragon S4 equivalent processor which is widely used in high-end smartphones like HTC One X and US version Galaxy S3.
After seeing success of the Amazon Kindle fire it is expected that Apple will launch smaller iPad called iPad Mini which will be direct competitor to Kindle Fire 2 as both will be released around the same time. The Kindle Fire will win in this battle due to amazing content that Amazon can offer, if you have bought at least one book or music album you will understand my point.
First generation Kindle Fire was released during Christmas holiday season so it was a bit late to the game to get the maximum out of Christmas madness. Most likely Amazon has learned from its experience and we will see the Kindle Fire 2 around September or October the latest.
Our current statement is that the Kindle Fire 2 release date is scheduled to September and we will keep you updated once we will get to know more about Amazon’s upcoming tablet.
