Amazon’s second Kindle Fire tablet, an updated model with a 10-inch display, will launch in the third quarter this year according to a recent report. Backing away from its earlier reports placing the 10-inch Kindle Fire’s launch date in the second quarter, Digitimes on Friday cited market rumors in claiming that Amazon’s next tablet will launch in the third quarter. The site also reports that the launch of Amazon’s purported 8.9-inch tablet has been suspended. BGR exclusively reported more than a year ago that Amazon was developing two tablets, a 7-inch “Coyote” with a dual-core processor that launched as the Kindle Fire, and a 10-inch “Hollywood” tablet that is powered by a quad-core processor.
