    [Rumor] Amazon May Be Working on 7-Inch Kindle Fire Successor and 9-Inch Version Too


    An analyst at Pacific Crest, Chad Bartley, is predicting great things for the Amazon Kindle Fire. He has increased his initial projections for sales of the Kindle Fire this year from 12.7 Million to 14.9 Million. Additionally, he also either has some insider information, or feels overly confident in his personal crystal ball predictions. Bartley indicated that he believes Amazon is working on a 7-inch successor to the current Kindle Fire that will have some enhanced specs, and he also believes that Amazon is designing a 9-inch follow-up to the Kindle Fire. Of course, previously, we have heard these kinds of rumors before, so it could just be speculation on his part, but it would be interesting news if it turns out to be true.

    As always, we will keep our eye out for any new info and let you know.

    Why 9" not 10" screen like all the other tablet ????
    Hope Amazon recognize that one of the main reason that they can sell 1 million unit a month is the PRICE .

    Agree, increase specs but definately the price makes a difference. but the bigger it comes, price increases. No matter what, Amazon has done great in their products.

    Amazon will soon be a great competitor to Apple's I-pad because their devices are so connected to their great website. The I-pad is a great tablet but Amazon will be closing the gap with each new model...

    I don't understand that either. One of my main knocks on the Kindle Fire is that it's only 7 inches, which is why I'm gonna sell mine and get an iPad 2.

    I personally like the 7" format and feel the 10" is too big and awkward. Everyone has their personal preferences.

    My sister just got a Galaxy Tab 10.1 which I played with briefly. I found it very difficult to hold in one hand and use the other to navigate around like I can with the KF. Seems to really be able to use a 10" tablet, you need to be able to set it on a flat surface.

    Although i have a few different tablets, different sizes, it is a personal preference imo. Guess it depends on the individuals need
