May 20th, 2012, 2:12 P.M. — A new Kindle Fire with larger display tipped, coming next quarter? Can the larger screen, plus a highly customized Android operating system, compete with the new iPad 3?
The new iPad 3 is arguably the most powerful, and also the most popular Apple tablet computer to date. With a stunning new display, a new processor and now with Long Term Evolution connectivity, analysts had suggested that Apple’s new device helped a lot in stabilizing the company’s tablet PC market share.
Amazon, on the other side of the fence, has attracted a decent number of tablet PC buyers in the United States with its Kindle Fire, the Android-based tablet computer with 7-inch screen, with no camera, and with a decent but not impressive display.
Analysts said the success of Amazon’s tablet is sweet, but very short. So, how can the retail giant compete with Apple in the tablet computer category? One new report coming in from Asia is suggesting that Amazon, now with data to study with, is reportedly set to re-enter the tablet market with a brand new Kindle Fire, a larger tablet and still with Android operating system which supports the company’s own application, music and movies stores.
According to Digitimes, Amazon will launch a 10.1-inch iteration of its popular Android tablet in the third quarter of this year, and its rumored plan to launch an 8.9-inch Kindle Fire variant has now been suspended.
The report also added, to be taken with a grain of salt, is reportedly expecting to ship up to 40 million tablets in 2012.
