Amazon Lining Up Nexus 7 Rivals? Kindle Fire HD Price Drop Hints at That

August 9, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Rumors are building up about the arrival of a new tablet from Amazon. The grapevine buzz carries along with a new launch expectation, thanks to the announcements made by the company regarding recent price cuts of their existing models.

We have also stumbled upon bits of information from a variety of sources about a possible upgrades  of these models also.

Last month, folks out there on the tech news space had posted news of Amazon claiming that the company was working on improving the resolution of its tablets. The rumors also claimed that a change in processor of the existing model was even possible.

These rumors are pointing on to the fact that Amazon is trying to compete with Google’s Nexus 7, by introducing new models.

The high resolution tablets powered with a Snapdragon 800 quad core processor may be a good competitor in terms of tech specifications in the battlefield with Nexus 7. But still, there is a question arising about the competition in terms of price.

Of late, the buzz regarding Amazon’s new release is being lapped up by Amazon enthusiasts and the murmur also hints that to better compete in the price battle, the company is moving towards the MediaTek processor for the Kindle Fire HD lineup refresh.


At present there is no confirmation regarding the new releases from Amazon. The last release from the company was made at September 2012, so there is a possibility of the next release next month.

Earlier this week, Amazon had brought about a $40 price cut on the existing model of Kindle Fire HD series, and that of course strengthens the possibilities of the rumors turning true.

The tech world is also discussing the possibility of the announcement of Amazon’s smart phone soon. What is your take on this?
