According to some reports, Amazon has informed some of the developers about the imminent release of a new version of its Kindle Fire tablet. Moreover, the release date was said very vaguely:
Presumably, the new tablet will have an improved display with a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels - just like Google's Nexus 7. In addition, the tablet may acquire a camera, decrease in size by a few centimeters and lose some weight.
It is worth noting that such a change in display resolution will require additional optimization of applications from developers, of course, if this is really true, and not just another duck …
Apple has been eyeing the segment of inexpensive tablets for a long time and in this regard, there are also rumors that indicate Apple's intentions to release a budget version of the iPad in the near future. The estimated price of this device will range from $ 249 to $ 299.
Although Apple still holds the lead among tablet makers, the Kindle Fire is the most popular Android tablet and could hit Apple's sales in a significant way.
