    [Rumor] Amazon May Ditch 8.9" Kindle Fire Tablet Idea in Favor of Just a 10" Model


    A new bit of "rumint" from DigiTimes suggests that Amazon has dropped their idea of offering an 8.9-inch version of their Kindle Fire, and instead will focus instead on their new 10-Inch model instead. Supposedly, Amazon's intention is to price this new 10-inch version of the Kindle Fire competitively enough to take on Apple's iPad directly in the market. Obviously, Amazon's ecosystem of Kindle books, and other digital content, well help them in this regard, but they do have a big hill to climb.

    On the flip-side of this, this same rumor from DigiTimes suggests that the rumors of Apple coming out with an iPad mini are true, and that Apple intends to compete directly with Amazon in the smaller and cheaper segment too. Could Apple price their product competitively enough to be taken seriously? Also, if they do, will they hurt their reputation as a premier and higher-end hardware vendor by doing so? It will be interesting to see how things pan out.

    Screen bigger will add more weight and less portability. Why dont Amazon design next Kindle model according to what customer want , I am a Kindle customer ;-) and here what I want:
    - Faster processor chip (quad core)
    - More RAM
    - Slot for up to 64GB SD card (not micro SD card)
    - Front and rear camera
    - Faster internet interface chip
    - Better battery
    - Less weight
    - More Amazon support apps for movie, mp3, camera, utilities we had enough games
    - Better screen display (3-D if you can)
    - And the last thing is pump the display to max of 8" and must keep the same weight
    - Keep the price around $350.
