The Kindle Fire has just received a shot in the arm which might just see it eventually own more than 22% of tablet sales in the US alone. What can we find in the souped up version of the Kindle Fire? How does double the amount of RAM sound to you, accompanied by a 40% increase in speed thanks to a faster processor? You can place your order today at $159 a pop for the new Kindle Fire, with shipping commencing on September 14. Not only that, Amazon promises a longer battery life with their updated Kindle Fire, but you can be sure that no matter how good an e-reader’s battery life is, it cannot beat the paperback which, well, requires no battery at all!
