Two New Amazon Tablets To Be Launched This 2012?

Taking pride of the success of its 7 inch Kindle Fire, industry sources have recently reported that there’s a great possibility for Amazon to release its two new models of Kindle tablets. Not much has been told about these slates though. From what we have heard, both slates will be offered for a very affordable cost. Sadly, we are yet to dig for more info since the specs and features were left untold.

As for the first Amazon Kindle tablet, it will be flaunting a 7 inch display and will also be sold for a price that’s similar to the Kindle Fire. The said $199 budget-friendly tablet will be eventually be powered by Android but we don’t know if it’s going to be based on Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread or Honeycomb. Industry sources further stated that the said slate will be launched sometime within the second quarter of 2012.

On the other hand, the second slate will be equipped with a 10.1 inch display and will most likely be priced somewhere in between $249 to $299. There’s no official word as to when this tablet will be released in the market but it was stated that HannsTouch will be part of the new suppliers that will be providing the slate’s touch sensors.

Apart from the two new Amazon tablets that will be released this year, there were also reports stating that Amazon plans to release two additional tablets. However, the possibility for these slates to be released in the market remains unclear. Aside from the 8.9 inch Kindle Tablet, a super affordable 7 inch Amazon tablet has recently been leaked. If ever it will be released, its price will most likely fall under the category of those tablets that you can buy for less than $170. To be more specific, the said tablet will be offered for $169.

What do you think? Will these new Amazon tablets be as successful as the Kindle Fire?
