The Amazon Kindle Fire hasn’t even been given a UK release date yet, and our US gadget-loving brethren don’t get their hands on it until tomorrow. But news has emerged from the Far East of plans for a follow-up. Read on to see just what’s planned for the Amazon Kindle Fire 2.
It seems Taiwan’s Quanta Computer has landed the order to produce the Amazon Kindle Fire 2, according to a report in Apple Daily. The new version of the bargain bucket tablet will be released in the second quarter of next year, which starts in April.
Sadly, specs and price plans remain thin on the ground, but perhaps the Kindle Fire 2 will come with a skinned version of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Either way, you can expect it to offer more grunt, but with the same peerless access to Amazon’s myriad services.
Are you planning on snagging a Kindle Fire when it launches in the UK? Or are you happy to wait until its successor is officially revealed? Tell us in the comments now.
