Amazon's next-generation Kindle Fire HD detailed

Amazon will soon be unveiling its new tablet range. But you don't have to wait to find out about them. Images and details of the new slates have already appeared online.

Well, images of the 7-inch model have appeared, courtesy of the BGR site. But by all accounts, the new 8.9-inch model is much the same - only bigger. As for the design of both, the images show a more angular design, a redesign of the buttons, a move of the stereo speakers from the back to the top of the device and the removal of the band across the bottom on the back of the current HD tablets. But that's only half the tale.

The inner workings of the tablets are as interesting, if not more so. Amazon’s new 7-inch Kindle Fire HD will feature a high-resolution 1,920 x 1,200-pixel display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at more than 2GHz, 2GB RAM, Wi-Fi, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.

The updated 8.9-inch model is believed to have 'nearly identical specs', but with a 2,560 x 1,600-pixel high-definition display and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

No one is quite sure when the official launch will come, but there is talk of the 7-inch model arriving 'in the coming weeks', while the larger 8.9-inch version might not begin shipping until 'sometime in November'.
