First picture of new Amazon Kindle Fire leaks out


Amazon is expected to announce their new lineup of Kindle devices on September 6th, and we might have our first glimpse of the next Kindle Fire. Chris Ziegler of The Verge was sent a purported shot of the next Kindle Fire and told that a “pair” of Fires is likely.

Previous rumors from Digitimes suggested that Amazon would release 7 and 10-inch tablets in the second half of 2012, but we don’t know if both devices will be unveiled at the same time. Since Amazon is trying to become the tablet leader, I believe we will see a 10 inch tablet next week.

We can see the new Kindle Fire has a front-facing camera, but we don’t know if it will have a rear facing camera. I expect Amazon will try to keep the overall cost of the tablet down, and a rear camera might not make the list of features.

Expect more details to leak out over the coming days.
