Amazon is expected to launch two new tablets in the second half of 2012 and move away from the eBook readers of old concentrating more on tablets, reports the Digi Times website today.
According to the report on the website, Amazon is planning to launch both a 7 inch and 10 inch tablet in 2012. Which has been prompted by the strong sales of its Kindle Fire tablet, of which Amazon has sold 3.98 million.
The new tablet designs are expected to be outsourced to manufactures with the 10 inch model to Quanta Computer and Foxconn Electronics, explained Digi Times’s source.
Amazon has also now started to reduce its orders for e-paper products cutting down shipments from E Ink Holdings. “EIH has announced revenues of NT$1.07 billion (US$36.22 million) for February, down 24% on month and 62% on year.”
As more information becomes available regards the new Amazon tablets we will keep you updates as always.
