Would You Upgrade to the Kindle Fire 2?

As crazy as it sounds, there are rumors that the Kindle Fire 2 is already under production. As a Kindle Fire owner, I was interested to learn more. After all, why would Amazon already be planning a second generation, that will supposedly hit the market either this spring or during the second half of 2012, when the Kindle Fire is only 6 months old?

From what I read, there are sources stating that this is what Amazon wanted to produce but couldn't finish in time for the Kindle Fire to hit the market before Christmas 2011. In other words, it was all about the money (if that rumor is true). I'm sure this will piss some Kindle Fire owners off, but honestly, I could care less about the Kindle Fire 2.

The Kindle Fire 2 is rumored to have a larger screen, possibly a camera, and a quad core processor. At this time it is not believed that it will have a hybrid screen to handle e-Ink technology. It other words, it will be like a larger tablet.

Personally, I don't want a larger tablet. I have a laptop for all my computing needs. I use my Kindle Fire for reading, playing games, etc and don't want to hold onto a large, heavy tablet for hours on end. However, I know some use the device as a tablet and will enjoy the upgraded specs. How about you? Are you excited about the Kindle Fire 2? Oh, and by the way, it's speculated that the device won't be called the Kindle Fire 2 because that would make those that had just purchased the first generation of the device a pit pissy.


  1. I saw these rumors when I was debating whether or not to get the Fire or to wait. Yes, I would like to use it more as a tablet, but I think I will be using it gor all kinds of other reasons just as much. And I also have the Droid, a desktop and a laptop, so I am pretty well off in the technology department!

  2. Agreed. To me it just seems crazy. Why not start another brand instead of calling the tablets Kindles?
