Kindle fire 2

Updated on February 29, 2012

Kindle Fire 2

Are you eagerly awaiting the Kindle Fire 2?

As we all eagerly await the release of the new Kindle Fire 2, there are a lot of rumours circulating about the new Kindle from Amazon which we expect to be released in 2012.

Many are wondering how can Amazon improve on the Kindle Fire which was released only in 2011? Well the truth is that the first Kindle Fire was released without all of the features that Amazon had wanted to put on this new edition of e reader. It was rushed into production so that they could sell it in the Christmas sales to boost their revenue. With that in mind the internet is abuzz with questions, what was missing from the kindle? What can we expect in the new Kindle Fire 2?

With so many different rumours flying around about the new Kindle and Amazon are not letting anything out of the bag just yet........ here is what we have been able to find out about the new e reader so far:

What can we expect from the new Kindle Fire 2?

Expect a bigger screen!
Sources from the Digitimes say that the screen will be 9.7 inches

Kindle Fire 2 has a release date!
Amazon have not released anything yet, but rumour has it that Amazon is already producing the new Kindle Fire 2

The processor has been upgraded

Amazon have put in a quad core Tegra processor which is 5 times faster than the original Kindle Fire, they should rename this the Kindle Lightning! Kerchow

The Kindle Fire 2 IS the real Kindle Fire
This new Kindle Fire will have all of the features Amazon wanted to put on the first Kindle Fire but were not able to because they rushed it into production before the product was fully developed.

The Kindle Fire 2 will be called something else
Industry experts believe that Amazon will not want to upset Kindle Fire Customers by releasing an upgraded version of the Kindle Fire so soon after the release of the first Kindle Fire. A way around this is to call it something else and market it as a totally different product

There WILL be new features:

Some features could be a GPS, Camera, Microphone integration of Social Media Technology. The Frustrating part is Amazon have not released any new information and they are keeping VERY quiet.

We are all speculating about price, but I bet if this new kindle comes with more features the price will go up.

Do you have a Kindle Fire?

Let us know!

See results

Do you have a Kindle?
