Amazon is reportedly working on an 8.9-inch and 10.1-inch Kindle Fire tablet, according to DigiTimes. The 8.9-inch version is said to launch in the second quarter of 2012.

Amazon is developing 8.9- and 10.1-inch next-generation Kindle Fire models and has selected an 8.9-inch model for launch by the end of the second quarter of 2012 due to LG Display's and Samsung Electronics' promotion of 8.9-inch panels and to avoid competition with 9.7-10.1-inch products offered by other vendors, the sources said. Foxconn will begin ODM production of 8.9-inch Kindle Fire in the middle of the second quarter of 2012, the sources indicated.
