Amazon Kindle Fire to go 10-inch

kindleWhen we talk about tablets, one of the most important things that come to our mind is portability. Due to the size of the screens and the weight of the tablet, there is a lot of convenience in handling such devices. Amazon was one of those companies who started of producing some of the smallest sized tablets. They understood that portability is what is required and the best way to give that to their customers is to produce small screen sized tablets.

But now, it seems like Amazon wants to go big. The Kindle Fire, which was initially produced by the company in a smaller size, will be launched by the company this year in a much larger screen size, so much so that it is believed to produce one of the largest sized Android tablets. It is expected that the company will be going into mass production in the 3rd quarter of the year.

Previously, Amazon launched the Kindle Fire in a 7 inch screen. This was about a year and a half back. But now, the Richard Shim, an analyst at NPD DisplaySearch disclosed that the newer version will be produced with a screen size of 10 inch.

The main feature of this tablet apart from its size is that it will feature a display resolution of 2500 x 1600 pixels in its 10.1 inch display screen. This means that the PPI will be about 300, even better than that of the iPad 4 which features 264 PPI. Pixel per inch (PPI) is a good indicator of the resolution and quality of the screen display.

Further details were not given by the company so we are not sure about the other features of the tablet. Amazon has been said to have a market share of 3.7 percent in the tablet shipments, but if this tablet is a success, then this is expected to rise significantly.
