Amazon’s tablets have exhibited decent performance in the tablet but they haven’t been as successful as the iPad, if one really felt the need to make a comparison, perhaps that’s why the company might be considering to seriously up its tablet game.

The original Kindle Fire tablet was launched by Amazon back in 2011. Its specifications aren’t anything to write home about by today’s standards, the tablet had TI OMAP 4430 dual-core processor with 512MB RAM and 8GB of onboard storage, along with a 7-inch 1024×600 pixel resolution display.

The Amazon Kindle Fire is a platform that is also able to handle games with aplomb, as we have read about how Assassin’s Creed: Pirates was just released on it.

Amazon has already started to ship its most recent generation of Kindle Fire tablets recently, so the question that begs to be asked is this – what would happen to the original Kindle Fire?
