BGR first reported that Amazon was developing a 10-inch Kindle Fire more than a year ago. The tablet, code-named “Hollywood,” was powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and was shaping up to be a high-end counterpart to 7-inch Kindle Fire, which was code-named “Coyote.” Numerous reports covering the device have emerged since then, and BGR recently reported additional exclusive details surrounding the 10-inch slate, which may finally launch this summer. Now, buried within a report claiming Apple is prepping a smaller iPad tablet, The New York Times claims to have confirmed that the larger Kindle Fire tablet is in development. The paper provided no additional details but with new reports piling up each week, a 10-inch Kindle Fire announcement could come as soon as this month.
