May 2nd, 2013 | Posted by Costea Lestoc in Smartphones

Though any official confirmation is yet to be made, according to latest reports, Amazon may bring out a bigger version of the Kindle Fire tablet. The online retailer has continuously grown the size of the tablets and it seems, another size increase is on the cards to happen pretty soon. According to many, Amazon started the small tablet fad as it launched the 7-inch Kindle Fire in November, 2011. Later in September, 2012, it announced the 8.9-inch model of the same as well. Now, Amazon will probably be moving up to the 10-inch class soon. The news was confirmed by the Analyst of NPD DisplaySearch, Richard Shim. The spokesperson of Amazon didn’t want to respond to this news at this point of time. Incidentally, Amazon has a total market share of 3.7% when it comes to the tablets market and it is currently ranked as number 4 when it comes to tablet shipments.

This is all set to become the biggest Kindle Fire released so far and it will be sporting an amazing 2560X1600 pixel density 10.1-inch display, as far as comments of Shim are concerned. This is around 300 pixels for every inch and this is pretty denser in comparison with the Retina iPad 4 of Apple which comes with 264 PPI. The PPI matches with that of Google Nexus 4 which is considered to be the highest resolution tablet that has come out till date. Incidentally, Google Nexus 4 has a 10-inch screen with 2560X1600 pixels.

As far as comments of Shim are concerned, it is expected that the mass production of the display for the 10-inch Kindle fire is expected to start in the 3rd quarter of 2013. Shim added further that Amazon may also come up with revamped versions of both 7-inch and 8.9-inch Kindle fires soon as well.
