The Kindle Fire finally has a successor, the Kindle Fire. That’s right, a second generation Kindle Fire is here. What’s new? It has double the RAM over the first Fire and has a somewhat faster processor. According to Amazon, that means a 40% bump in power.
The looks on the Kindle Fire update will also remain pretty much the same as we already are used to.
Expected more from the Fire, huh? Keep a few things in mind before you get disappointed. First, the second-generation Kindle Fire will have lower price point than Google Nexus, now at just $169. Second, there are two other new members to the Kindle Fire family.
Now we have the Kindle Fire (2nd gen), Kindle Fire HD 7-inch, and Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch. The HD models have plenty of high-end features that are worth getting excited about as well, though we’ll have more about them in an upcoming post. The Kindle Fire family is now much more crowded, but that also means we have more options with pricing ranging from $169 all the way up to $299.
