Amazon Kindle Fire
A image posted on Twitter appears to show an upcoming Amazon Kindle Fire, suggesting a product update is imminent.
It's the usual time of year for a new Kindle to pop up, and the emergence of this new pic adds fuel to the, er, fire.
Seasonal fire risk
Posted by @evleaks on Twitter, the new pic shows a Kindle Fire but shows no sign of the front-facing camera that features on the Fire HD. This suggests that it's an entry level, non-HD Fire.
There is a trio of new Kindle Fires expected, starting with a 7in model with 1280 x 800 screen (likely to be the one pictured), followed by the 7in HD with 1920 x 1200 screen quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi and optional cellular connections and either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage, and topped off with the 8.9in HD with the same specs but a 2560 x 1600 screen and 8MP main camera.
At the same time, Amazon has dropped the price of the current Kindle Fire from £129 down to £99, suggesting it's making way for new stock.
