Amazon is preparing to launch brand new Kindle Fire HD tablets in the coming months and BGR has detailed them fully in a pair of exclusive reports. The second-generation Kindle Fire HD models will feature an all-new exterior design, as well as a complete internal overhaul with cutting-edge specs that outclass every comparable tablet on the market today. With the new slates’ fall launch approaching, Amazon has slashed the base price of the current-generation Kindle Fire HD to just $159 in a likely move to clear inventory. The new price is in line with Amazon’s entry-level Kindle Fire, and the company noted that it will only be available for a limited time.
