Kindle Fire HD 2 images leaked

first_imgAmazon has carved out a nice segment of the tablet market with its Kindle Fire tablets. The company is expected to be unveiling a new version of the Fire HD later this month, but some images of the 7-inch slate appear to have leaked out. The images show a device with rearranged components, a landscape Amazon logo, and a beveled edge along the back.From the orientation of the logo, camera location, and speaker placement, it seems Amazon intends this version of the device to be held in landscape. The back slopes down in a rather extreme beveled edge. This makes the large power and volume button easy to get at. The stereo speakers are at the top of the unit.The Kindle Fire HD 2 is expected to have a 1920 x 1200 screen, the same resolution as the new Nexus 7. The rumored internals include a quad-core Snapdragon 800 ARM chip and 2GB of RAM. The 8.9-inch model, which is not in any of the leaked pics, will reportedly have the same internals, but a higher resolution of 2560 x 1600. That matches the Nexus 10, but will have a higher pixel density because it’s slightly smaller.There is no word on pricing yet, but it will probably be in-line with the current Fire pricing of $199 for the 7-inch and $269 for the 8.9-inch model. The upcoming Kindle tablet will again run Amazon’s special version of Android, which does not include Google services. Instead users get the Amazon equivalents.If you’re in the market, you can check BGR for a few more images.last_img read more
