NYT: Amazon’s working on a larger Kindle Fire, too

Yesterday, the New York Times penned an article about the mini iPad and chimed in with its own sources who, speaking anonymously, confirmed the existence of the 7-inch tablet. While most of the tech world focused on the possibility of a smaller iPad, a few sources picked up on another leak in the article that suggests Amazon is working on a bigger Kindle Fire. Their inside source, a “developer briefed on Amazon’s plans who did not want to be identified talking about unannounced products,” claims Amazon is prepping a larger Kindle Fire that would compete with the Apple iPad. The post does specify the dimensions of the bigger Kindle Fire, which leave open the possibility that Amazon could be developing an 8.9-inch or a 10-inch device. Amazon is expected to update the 7-inch Kindle Fire sometime this year. It’s possible the company may use that announcement to also unveil a bigger version of the popular Android tablet.
