The report claims that Amazon has plans to launch three new Kindle tablets including a new Kindle Fire variant that will replace the entry level Kindle Fire priced at $159, the Kindle Fire HD 7.0-inch successor which would replace the current Kindle Fire HD 7.0-inch and a revamped Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch tablet that replaces the existing 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD.
If the rumours are true, Amazon's next generation Kindle Fire tablets would be up against the likes of the Google Nexus 2 and Apple iPad mini 2 which are also expected to launched later this year.
While Google is expected to launch its next generation Nexus tablet in August with the latest Android version running, Apple is said to be gearing up to launch its iPad mini 2 in the holiday season.
Earlier, we reported about Amazon's plan to launch next generation Kindle Fire tablets with new design and better screens. Amazon has plans to upgrade its 7.0-inch Kindle Fire entry-level tablet with a higher resolution screen of 1280x800 pixels. The new models of the Kindle Fire tablets are expected to be lighter and could feature a more angular design and the corners of the tablets would not be rounded as well.
