Amazon reportedly tweaks Kindle Fire roadmap, next tablet to feature 8.9-inch display

Amazon’s follow up to the Kindle Fire tablet may feature an 8.9-inch touchscreen display rather than the 10-inch panel we have been expecting. BGR exclusively reported back in May that Amazon was working on two tablets, the 7-inch Kindle Fire we’ll see launch on November 15th and a quad-core 10-inch tablet that hasn’t been announced. According to a new report from DigiTimes, Amazon has introduced a third tablet into its roadmap and it is now scheduled to launch ahead of the 10-inch model, or even in place of the large-form slate. The site’s sources claim Chunghwa Picture Tubes and LG Display, Amazon’s display suppliers, have already begun to prepare for production of the 8.9-inch panels.
