Amazon 'working on two new Kindle Fire tablets'

Amazon is working on not one but two successors to the Kindle Fire, it has been claimed, as it bids to see off the challenge from the just-announced Google Nexus 7 and make further inroads to the iPad’s market share.

In the months leading up to the Kindle Fire’s release in November last year, rumours were rife that a second tablet, codenamed ‘Hollywood’, was also due to drop. Unlike the seven-inch Kindle Fire, Amazon’s other slate purportedly features an iPad-challenging ten-inch screen.

According to Boy Genius Report (BGR), some eight months after the Fire dropped the glam-slam-sounding Hollywood is finally ready. And as you might expect will apparently be a higher-end bit of kit, complete with a brawny quad-core processor and a front-facing camera.

The Hollywood will purportedly be accompanied by a successor to Kindle Fire, which will retain its seven-inch screen, which will also be a real step up from its predecessor, the source claims.

They will also dispense with front-facing home buttons and will feature a microUSB port.
