Report: Kindle Fire 2 Could Show Up Next Month

By Leslie Horn on at

Microsoft's shown off Surface, Google just might reveal its own tablet, and according to an unnamed CNET source, Amazon is joining the party with the Kindle Fire 2 in the States, even before we clamp eyes on it here. According to reports it's set to debut in July.

The rebooted Fire will allegedly have a camera and volume control butons, though other specs like onboard memory and processor are rather vague. While CNET does have some info from a "credible" source, much of its post relies heavily on chatter from the Digitimes, the rumour-mongering unreliable bullshit machine. However, a new Kindle Fire is not outside of the realm of possibility. In fact, with the one year anniversary of the announcement of the first-gen device coming up, and with several of its competitors coming out with new slates, an update is rather likely. [CNET]
