Amazon revealed today a 7 and 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDs after weeks of rumors leading up to its debut. The 7inch Kindle Fire HD, is in other words “Kindle Fire 2”, comes with a 1280×800 HD display. Its companion the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD comes with an upgraded 1920×1200 HD display. Furthermore, the former has a 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor and the latter a 1.5 Ghz 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor, which should make only a slight difference for the average consumer. However, Amazon does claim that it’s Kindle Fire HDs are the fastest tablets out there, surpassing even the iPad 3. How is it possible you ask? Well the claim to have a dual band and dual antenna which makes WiFi downloading speeds 41 % faster than the iPad 3. Finally, the prices range from $199 to $499, all depending on how much space you need and if 4G speaks to you at all.

Since Amazon’s slashed prices on Kindles, sold out Kindle goods, and announced a Sept 6th press conference have all lead us to think that a new Kindle line-up will be released. With that thought in mind, the Verge has recived some leaked images of the new Kindle Fire. Although this looks like a really cool Kindle Fire, we can’t be sure it’s authentic as there are somethings in the picture that may it look like it could have been made easily from Photoshop. So don’t get too excited yet, and through out your Google Nexus tablet.

Amazon has been slashing down prices, and announcing a press conference for Sept. 6th, suspiciously. And to add to that, Amazon has also just decided to put the Kindle Touches availability as out of stock, today. Therefore, I could almost bet my house that Amazon is releasing a whole new Kindle line-up to rival up with the new Google Nexus and to-be-released Microsoft Surface tablets. However, I wouldn’t be too surprise if more Kindle get out of stock, or prices go down.

Usually, when big companies hold press conferences it’s for a good reason. Therefore, Amazon’s September 6th press conference has a hidden agenda that will be revealed on the day. Could this be a whole new line of Kindles, as Amazon has slashed some Kindle prices way down? That’s probably the reason behind the press conference. But who knows, maybe they’ll be releasing a Kindle laptop, as the world is truly messed up.
