New Kindle Fire said to feature 1280x800 screen

Written by Fudzilla staff



Coming in late Q3 apparently


Amazon’s second generation Kindle Fire will feature a new screen and unlike its predecessor, it will also have a camera on board.

According to AllThingsD, the new Fire will pack a 1280x800 screen, just like Google’s Nexus 7. With 67 percent more pixels than the 1024x600 panel used in the first Kindle Fire, the new screen will significantly boost pixel density, to 216ppi to be exact. In addition, it brings a new form factor into play, as the next gen Kindle Fire will be somewhat wider than its predecessor.

Competition in the cheap and cheerful 7-inch tablet market is definitely heating up. The Nexus 7 is almost out, Amazon is planning to introduce the new Kindle Fire sometime in Q3, while Apple is rumoured to be working on a cheap iPad mini. Let’s not forget Nvidia’s Kai platform either.
