While the Kindle Fire 2 is to be shown and presented to the general public on July 31st, the official release date now seems to be August the 7th, 2012! In case you are a new reader to our blog and haven't been following all the latest news on the new Amazon Kindle Fire 2, here is a great rumor roundup to help make a long story short.
Google's Nexus 7 is the tablet to overcome right now and it won't be an easy task (not by a long shot!) and Amazon knows it. There were long running rumors which told us that Amazon is planning to launch a refresh of its line of kindles and all the current news support that theory. As for the competition, nobody is really worried about Apple or Samsung anymore at Amazon since Google is making use of its brand name, technology, and additionally its content (apps, games, singing, movies) to woo consumers to its new tablet device the Nexus 7 which is a direct competitor to Amazon in the lower-end sector.
Based on the report conducted by ChinaTimes.com the production of the Kindle Fire 2 has been ramped up and Amazon is ready to have 2 million models fully manufactured and ready for sale by August 7th. Furthermore the report backs-up our previous information that the new device will feature a metal case and a new rumor that Amazon will hire a different battery supplier. The full HD and different screen sizes are also on the rumor mill, but the processor is something I am more concerned with. Will it be a quad-core to compete with the Nexus 7? We shall soon see!
