Amazon may launch 10.1-inch Kindle Fire by Q3 2012
| by Aaron Almeida |
The only tablet that has actually posed a threat to Apple’s iPad is Amazon's Kindle Fire and it had made quite a significant dent on Apple’s market share. A lot of talks that have been floating around are speculating that since Apple has been losing its market to the 7-inch tablet from Amazon, they are launching the iPad mini that roughly measures between 7 to 8-inch. However, it appears that Amazon is not the one to sit on their success and is instead looking to launch a 10.1-inch tablet that will directly compete with Apple’s iPad, a report by Digitimes states.
As per the report, “The latest market rumors indicate that Amazon is likely to launch a 10.1-inch Kindle Fire in the third quarter, while tentatively suspending the launch of a speculated 8.9-inch model.” The website states that industry sources have informed them that this move by Amazon is to streamline their line-up and directly compete with the Apple iPad and the Galaxy Note tablets. The report concludes by stating, “Tablet PC orders from Amazon are expected to start gaining momentum at the end of the second quarter or in early third quarter, said the sources. Including shipments of an entry-level as well as an advanced 7-inch Kindle Fire tablet, Amazon is expected to ship 30-40 million tablet PCs in 2012, the sources estimated.”
