The 7-inch Kindle Fire tablet from Amazon kick started the trend of small and mid-range tablets, that is the view that some have. While this can be debated upon, there’s no denying the fact that Google soon followed suit and released its own 7-inch tablet. Apple was a little late to the party with their iPad mini, but they made sure that their product will stand out from the crowd both in terms of finesse and price. It is now being reported that Amazon is developing a new 10-inch Kindle Fire tablet, this according to analyst Richard Shim of NPD DisplaySearch.


He claims that 10-inch Kindle Fire tablet will tout a 2560×1600 display with approximately 300 pixels per inch, that’s a greater pixel density than that of Retina Display iPad 4 which has 264 pixels per inch. Mass production of this new tablet will reportedly begin in the third quarter of 2013 and the company might, this is an unconfirmed rumor but still, release revamped 7-inch and 8.9-inch Kindle Fire models with near 300 PPI displays. No details about specifications, pricing and availability have been divulged just yet. Analysts are known to speculate about unreleased products, that doesn’t mean a company’s product roadmap has been revealed. Amazon has not yet commented on this rumor, so there still exists a possibility that the 10-inch Kindle Fire tablet is much more similar to a figment of the imagination.
