Amazon readying 9-inch Kindle Fire for 2012, analyst predicts

Amazon readying 9-inch Kindle Fire for 2012, analyst predicts
by Don Reisinger February 10, 2012 8:28 AM PST

"Amazon is nearing the launch of a 9-inch Kindle Fire, Pacific Crest analyst Chad Bartley says.

Bartley told investors in a research note this week that the 9-inch Kindle Fire could launch by the middle of the year. He didn't provide further details on the tablet, but did say that the 9-inch model should increase Kindle Fire sales this year from an expected 12.7 million units to 14.9 million.

Bartley wrote that his prediction is based on his own recent checks with Amazon component suppliers. While such checks can be helpful in getting a sense of a company's future plans, they're by no means definitive, and can often lead analysts down the wrong path..."

This seems right, but much more info is needed.

Interesting. If they would only include a sd-card slot on it would be really nice. Seems like no new large screen eink readers coming out anytime soon. For the right price the bigger Fire might be an alternative.

The lack of SD card bugs me. But, I enjoy my Fire. I've been looking forward to what their next offering may be.

But is there going to be a new Kindle (e-ink) generation? Such as K5 or something ?

There already is a K5 - the Kindle Touch. People normally number Kindles by their firmware version. The Kindle Touch runs v5 firmware, and is often called the K5.

Ah, alright. In this case, K6 or something and I don't mean another tablet.

I'm rather excited to see what Amazon does with a larger tablet. Will they try and compete with a full featured tablet or go the Fire route and cut features to reduce the price?

Yes, because if apple get their way and crush the competition that will be so great for us the consumers and for innovation.

Probably too young to remember that Microsoft is the only reason there is an iPad. Apple has had a bumpy road. Amazon is a better run company. I think Bezos will be OK in this tablet market.

I don't see it being competitive if it is priced over 299...

Missing the SDHC card reader is a show stopper for me personally.

~$400 would be rather expensive.
