Obviously there is no official word from Amazon, but sources close to the horse hint that the company is planning to try its luck with one more tablet device, this time something bigger than Kindle Fire in its size.

According to anonymous sources close to Amazon, the company, in all possibilities, will debut an 8.9 inch tablet this year itself.
