RUMOR: Amazon To Release Two New Kindle Fires With A Metal Casing

Amazon Kindle Fire

In the next few months, Amazon will release two new Kindle Fire tablets, one with a 7-inch display and another one with a 10-inch display according to sources with  The new models will supposedly have a metal casing.  “It’s really up a notch from the current Fire,” said the sources.

The back of both tablets will have a chrome-look “rib” that contrasts against a black matte finish, which will contain the speakers.  The new Kindle Fires are expected to be thinner than the third generation iPad and will not have any physical buttons on the front.  The 10-inch version of the new Kindle Fire will have a front-facing camera and both tablets will come with a microUSB port and possibly one for HDMI.
