Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9With Amazon’s existing Kindle Fire tablets getting out of sync from the market, everyone has started looking for the next-generation tablets from the retail giant. With both Google and Apple readying their next generation tablets, Amazon will have to put its best foot forward and the company plans to do that, suggests a report from BGR.

According to BGR, Amazon is preparing three Kindle Fire tablets for release ahead of the holiday season. Each of these tablets will be succeeding the existing tablets from the company’s current portfolio, meaning, we will see two 7-inch devices and one with 8.9-inch display.

Sources tell BGR that the cheapest Kindle Fire tablet will come with a 1280x800p HD display like the current Kindle Fire HD tablet. The second tablet, which will be replacing Kindle Fire HD as the company’s flagship 7-inch tablet, will feature a 1920x1200p display panel in direct competition with rumoured Nexus 7 II, which is also said to be coming with same resolution screen.

The last of three and Kindle Fire HD 8.9 successor will come with 2560x1600p display in line with other flagship large tablets.

In terms of the design, Amazon is said to be integrating a more angular design with a flat slope out to the edges instead of a curved slope. The power and volume buttons seems to have been improved a lot by the company and are now featured on the slopes instead of the sides.

BGR also adds via its sources that the new Kindle Fire tablets will be lighter than the current models. Pricing is yet to be decided by Amazon is likely to keep its existing prices.
