Amazon Kindle Fire 2 Specs

Online retail giant Amazon (AMZN) is widely expected to unveil a number of new Kindle devices at its big press event next week, including a sequel to its Kindle Fire tablet. Although previous rumors had suggested that Amazon planned to launch a larger 8.9 or 10-inch version of the Kindle Fire, CNET is reporting that the company will instead announce an upgraded 7-inch tablet and a slightly revamped version of the original Fire. The high-end 7-inch model will feature various hardware improvements such as a faster processor, physical volume controls, an HDMI port and (finally!) the addition of a camera.
