The Kindle Fire 2 rumors continue over a potential release date for the item. With regards to the plans the company has in updating and launching its newest eReaders, it seems that there’s been a total silence around it. However, it seems this trend could break soon. Some are speculating that reduced prices on the current lineup of Kindles could indicate the newest additions are coming very soon.
Amazon has been busy lately promoting its current line of Kindles, with some being discounted. Currently, if you want to buy a Kindle DX eReader you will be able to do so on Amazon with a $110 discount right now. If you want to get the Kindle Touch (pictured), you will need to wait around eight to nine days for availability, and if you are interested in the Kindle Touch 3G, then you will find it’s currently unavailable. Given all of this news, what does it mean as far as a new Kindle Fire 2 and other devices?
I think that if you take a closer look at this, you might buy into the notion that Amazon plans on renewing the Kindle family with its brand new members coming in the near future. According to TechnoBuffalo, the Gizmodo website has even mentioned that the Kindle Fire 2 release date will be as soon as next week. Others believe that some time will have to pass until Amazon will be able to bring a new member to its eReaders family, due to the increased competition, and competitors bringing out new products as well.
The latest news in regards to the Kindle Fire 2 speculates that the new eReader is going to ship this quarter. Many analysts and bloggers believe it would be a smart move from Amazon to put it on sale before Apple will be able to get their new iPad Mini on the market. Given these Kindle Fire rumors, would there be enough time for consumers to react to the announcement?
If the new Amazon Kindle is to be launched next week, it would mean there are only around 21 days until the new iPhone 5 and iPad mini will come out on the market and grab the spotlight once again. Some believe that Amazon should really wait until October or late September to reveal its newest products, but time will tell whether or not this is their strategy. In fact, we could know by as soon as next week.
