http://www.theverge.com/2012/8/30/3280005/this-is-the-new-amazon-kindle-fire We've just been sent a purported shot of the next Kindle Fire, Amazon's Android-based tablet that's expected to be announced next week after the current model "sold out" earlier today. We're being told that a "pair" of Fires is likely — a 7- and a 10-incher — though it remains unclear whether both models will be introduced at the same time. While the original Fire was widely known to be based on the same OMAP4 reference design as RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook, the new model appears to be a custom design (or at least a reference design that we're not familiar with). That's not to say it's any more visually interesting — it's still just a plain, simple, black box. We weren't provided with any shots of the back, so we don't know whether there's a primary camera; there's no sign that Amazon is shifting its strategy of making the Fire an extraordinarily affordable tablet, though, so we'd expect them to be trimming costs wherever they can (just as Google did with the Nexus 7).
