Amazon to introduce two new tablet PCs in 2012?
Amazon may launch 7-inch and 10-inch tablet PCs this year
Amazon is expected to launch a 7-inch and a 10-inch tablet this year.
According to the latest rumors the company will launch the 7-inch tablet in the first half of 2012 while the 10-inch beauty will follow in the second half of the year.
The American giant has already ridden high on the success of its highly popular ‘Amazon Kindle Fire’ tablet. Some amazing figures and statistics ascertain the MNC’s success.
‘Amazon shipped 3.98 million Kindle Fire tablet PCs in the fourth quarter of 2011, taking up a 14 per cent share of the global tablet PC market as well as the second position in the vendor rankings, according to market data’, according to Digitimes.
The site has indicated that Amazon is now gearing up to set the market on fire all over again, by bringing in a larger version of the tablet. Evidently, it is shifting its focus from e-readers to tablet PCs.
While Wintek and TPK Holdings still continue to source out the touch panels to the company, reports claim that Amazon may possibly outsource the production of the new 10-inch model to Quanta Computer and Foxconn Electronics.
All the tittle-tattle clearly indicates that Amazon is devising something big.
As to where we stand, well there is no smoke without Fire?
