Amazon’s Fall Tablets: Specifications – Affordable and Amazing

We all know that the showstoppers appear last. Well, the same can be said for Amazon’s entry level Kindle Fire as well. The tiny tablet, priced at just $159, has successfully avoided the expense and selective market appeal of Apple iPad and instead opted humbly for affordability and mass market appeal. While the high definition Kindle Fire HD tablets had already gathered its market and prepared it, this second generation Kindle Fire tiny tablet has been noted for its fast performance, cheaper price and better operation.

Given the option to choose from two sizes – 7 inch and 8.9 inch – BGR has let us have  sneak peek into the specifications of the much awaited tiny tablet. The first drawback that we noticed was that Amazon is yet to move and groove with the trend of QUALCOMM Snapdragon 800 chipset, instead using the Texas Instruments 1.5GHz dual core OMAP4 4470 processor along with a PowerVR graphics card SGX544. But good news is that we can expect the next year’s mode to sport a shiny MediaTek 8135 quad-core chipset.


Back to 2013’s model, it will also feature a 1 GB RAM and will, most likely be powered by Android Jelly Bean v4.2.2. The tablet will also feature a high definition display with amazing image clarity and a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels.

While the specifications fail to incite much excitement, we definitely look forward to it, especially considering the present lack of punch in the present base model. We can look forward to three new tablets by Amazon this fall.
