Kindle Fire 2 Rumors

Rumors are circulating again about the Kindle Fire 2. The recent series comes from DigiTimes, which suggest that the Taiwan-based manufacturer Catcher Technology has already received orders for the new tablets from Amazon.

DigiTimes has more: “Catcher will supply the chassis to Amazon from its plants in Taizhou, China with estimated gross margin to be more than 40%, the sources noted. In 2012, Catcher is estimated to increase its number of CNC machines to 15,000 to help boost capacity and satisfy the strong demand from the tablet PC industry, especially the iPad, the sources noted.”

The new device will reportedly have a larger screen than the current 7-inch screen and is expected to come out in May or June.
