Unannounced Amazon 10.1″ Tablet Coming Right In Time For The Holidays?

New sources are back to stating that Amazon still has plans for releasing a 10.1″ tablet near the end of the year, just in time for the holiday shopping season. Surfing on the hype of their recent announcement, the Kindle Fire, Amazon is said to have Taiwan-based Foxconn Electronics pump out the reported tablets according to DigiTimes.

A 10.1″ model would be extremely welcomed, and with the 7″ Kindle Fire at a very pleasing price of just $199, we can’t imagine the 10.1″ going for that much more. Everyone might want to hold off on pre-ordering the new Kindle Fire if you had been hoping for something a bit bigger.


  • I simply desired to thank you very much yet again. I am not sure the things that I would have gone through without the ideas shared by you regarding this subject matter. It was actually an absolute troublesome dilemma for me, however , understanding this specialized approach you dealt with the issue made me to leap over gladness. Extremely happier for your assistance and as well , expect you find out what a great job you were carrying out educating the others by way of your web blog. I know that you’ve never met any of us.

    From what the rumors in the past have said that the 10.1 inch tablet would be higher end with a quad core processor. Development at NVIDIA has been delayed and the quad core processors have been pushed back. All reports have said that there will be a quad core by the holiday season. Will probably see in the new XOOM first then spread to the amazon and asus transformer II.

    Doesn’t matter unless it comes with 16g on board and an SD slot. I’m protesting the cloud 😉

    • i agree! you can have the biggest cloud in the world and it wont matter if you dont have access to it!

    It would make sense for them to enter the tablet market with a novel device (7″ screen, aimed at web browsing and e-reading instead of trying to replace the i*ad) and try to get some market saturation before rolling out a 10″ tab that would be competing with what, a dozen different tablets at this point.

    Hoping it comes in at/under $300/350.   Not sure I will get one but I bet it’ll drive the other tablets price down which is what I really care about.

    Calling BS on it. If it is true that Amazon was holding off on a 10″ tablet until they see how the 7″ sells I can’t imagine them changing their mind based on just early Internet hype rather than actual sales.  It could also piss off people who would prefer a 10″ tablet but have settled for the 7″ one.

    I don’t expect a 10″ Amazon tablet until early next year.

      There are a people who will only buy a 10″ tablet, why not appease those users especially with the holiday season coming?  I would imagine the only reason it wouldn’t be out for the holidays is they couldn’t start production in time and hit the price point they wanted or the’re some more refining that needs to be done with their hardware/UI with all the features intact (camera, mic, etc).

        Exactly.  I personally have no desire to get a 7 inch tablet.  That’s why the only reason I’m excited about the Flyer dropping in price is because that means hopefully the 10.1 inch tablets will start dropping in price as well.  I would probably even be okay with the Samsung 8.9 Tab, but not for the current price.

    Man between this and the Android Central story about Best Buy dropping the price of the Flyer to $299, maybe all tabs will finally start at under $400 instead of $400-$500.

    Perhaps this model will be a high end tablet (camera, etc). It will be interesting to see how it will fare against the iPad 2. Or maybe a 10″ low end cheap model – that’ll really dig into iPad’s market share.

    Either way we the consumers win. Cheers Amazon.

    BTW – don’t buy WebOS

  • I don’t know that I would necessarily hold off on ordering one of the 7″ Fire’s.  It’s going to server its purpose well for a lot of people.  

    • “if you had been hoping for something a bit bigger” 🙂

    After all the Hype for this event I highly doubt we’ll see them announce ANOTHER bigger one just in time to Kill the Hype for the 7incher… The rumors always said that the 10incher was pushed back to Q1 2012
