Second Kindle Fire tablet to feature larger touch panel display
Wednesday, 11 July 2012 22:26:16 BST
The Kindle Fire 2 is still not officially launched, but industry rumours suggest that Amazon's next tablet will pack a bigger screen than the seven inch touch panel found on the original.
The screen will reportedly pack a native resolution of 1280x800, which will give it extra clarity and definition when compared with its predecessor.
The change in pixel count will also result in a different aspect ratio for the touch panel, presumably increasing its size.
While it is as yet unknown whether the Kindle Fire 2 will attempt to match the iPad when it comes to touch panel area, it seems likely that the seven inch display is no longer going to be the gold standard for this Android tablet.
Most are expecting that the Kindle Fire 2 will be put into the public arena in August and it could be the first time that the tablet has seen the light of day outside of America.
Of course Amazon is now going to be competing with Google's Nexus 7 tablet at the cut price end of the market, so the Kindle Fire 2 may not have as easy a ride.

TPControl currently unavailable on the Apple App Store
Here at Touch Panel Control we strive to introduce new and exciting features for the TPControl product family.
Unfortunately in our latest Apple AppStore submission, we discovered an error would occur in the upgrade process which would potentially render using the existing TP4 design file impossible.
To prevent existing users experiencing this problem we have temporarily removed TPControl from the Apple AppStore.
A corrected version is now awaiting Apple approval. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but trust you will love the new features that will soon be available.
