While Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets have yet to reach the hands of consumers, it looks like Amazon is already working on releasing the successor to the tablet. According to a report by Taiwanese industry insiders, DigiTimes, Foxconn Electronics has secured orders from Amazon for the next generation Kindle Fire tablets. Since there have been no details about these purported second generation tablets, there’s no telling if they are going to be a minor refresh or a major update. However the tablets are said to be shipping out in the first half of 2012.
Foxconn is known for its production of Apple’s products such as the iPhone, and is also rumored to be producing Sony’s Tablet S. If Foxconn really is producing the next generation Amazon Kindle Fire, Foxconn is doing a very good job making a name for itself in the production industry. But here’s to hoping that safety and working conditions won’t be an issue for the company anymore.Related articles:
