The Amazon Kindle Fire remains one of the cheapest Android tablets available (in the US, at least), priced $199.
But there are suggestions that an Amazon Kindle Fire price cut might be on the horizon, in order to pave the way for future models – effectively Amazon Kindle Fire 2s. Or something.
In December last year, shortly after release, the Amazon Kindle Fire was shifting over a million units per week.
More recently, however, sales have started to wane quite significantly. An Amazon Kindle Fire price cut - in the amount of $50, we're hearing - would help clear existing units, ahead of a couple of new models.
DigiTimes’ sources (from the “upstream supply chain”, natch) reckon we’ll see an enhanced 7in Amazon Kindle Fire with a resolution of 1280 x 800 in Q3, priced $199, alongside another 7in model (what the…?) with a resolution of 1024 x 600 and price tag of $149.
We’ve heard rumours of an Amazon Kindle Fire 2 with a larger display, but according to da ‘Times, plans for an 8.9in model have been shelved, while a 10.1in Amazon Kindle Fire might follow in Q4 2012 or Q1 2013.
Salt. Oh, so much salt.
