Is a second generation Kindle Fire tablet hitting early next year?

gdgt: "The Kindle teams used the RIM PlayBook to get a color e-reader product out the door (gdgt.com­/discuss­/ the­-amazon­-tablet&# 173;-will­-look­-like ­-...). I stopped short of saying they're rushing it out the door, but by all accounts I've heard that it was indeed delayed. (It doesn't seem like much of a secret now that Amazon seems to have been trying to get a Kindle tablet out a little earlier this year.)

Well, this delay to get the "stopgap" Kindle tablet out in time for the holiday season this year may have pretty serious consequences for early adopters and holiday shoppers: my sources tell me the second-gen Kindle tablet (or Kindle Fire, as it's now been dubbed) will be out in Q1 of 2012"

The story is too old to be commented.
