While we do know that Amazon is working hard to roll out the spanking new Kindle Fire 2 to the masses later this fall, does that mean the original Kindle Fire will just die a quick death? Apparently not, as there are whispers going around that the original Amazon Kindle Fire will experience a price drop when its successor debuts, at least according to the good people over at DealNews. DealNews claims that Amazon will follow in Apple’s footsteps by retaining both the iPad 2 and new iPad, so that would mean the Amazon Kindle Fire will most likely see a price drop to perhaps $169, which would make it possibly one of the lowest for the Android-powered tablet market.
This might also be part of Amazon’s effort to price themselves against Google’s hot new tablet, the Asus-manufactured Nexus 7 that retails for a mere $199. What do you think about this move if it is proven to be true? Do you think that a 15% discount off a year-old tablet is compelling enough to have you part with your hard earned money? Only time will tell, so we have decided to strap ourselves in for this exciting ride.
