Amazon planning 8.9-inch Kindle Fire next say suppliers

Amazon planning 8.9-inch Kindle Fire next say suppliers

The next Kindle Fire ereader tablet in Amazon's line-up is likely to use an 8.9-inch touchscreen display rather than a 10.1-inch panel as originally expected, sources in the supply chain have revealed. While we've heard talk of a pair of tablets - one small, the 7-inch Kindle Fire shipping in little over a week's time, and one large, potentially arriving toward the end of the year - since the beginning of the Amazon rumors, DigiTimes's sources say the retailer has switched to a smaller screen and pushed a 10.1-inch version further back down the roadmap.

Amazon profit dip predicted over Kindle Fire loss-leading

Amazon profit dip predicted over Kindle Fire loss-leading

Amazon's loss-leader strategy with the Kindle Fire ereader tablet, as well as a growing US sales tax bill, could lead to significantly reduced income this quarter analysts have predicted. The retailer is expected to announce earnings figures today, but already there are concerns that Amazon's net income may be just half of Q3 2010, according to an estimate average crunched by Businessweek. Part of the issue is the $199 Kindle Fire, hardware sales of which Amazon is believed to be taking a loss on, and instead relying on subsequent digital media sales to buoy profits.

It appears that Amazon may have a hit on their hands right out of the starting gate here as their pre-orders list now points toward the Kindle Fire being an instant best-seller. Amazon reports that their top-selling item at this very moment, and for the second day in a row, is indeed the Kindle Fire, a $199 Android-based unique-functioning tablet that's not even out in stores for sale yet. We've got all the coverage you could possible desire on this tablet as it was formally announced this week - meanwhile sit back, click around, and ask yourself why you've not ordered the thing for yourself yet.

Amazon Fire TV Stick takes on Chromecast

Amazon Fire TV Stick takes on Chromecast

Amazon may have been a late entrant into the set-top box space, but that hasn't stopped it already pushing out a second model, with the Fire TV Stick taking a leaf out of Chromecast's playbook by slotting straight into a spare HDMI port behind your TV. Undercutting the original Fire TV box at $39 - though Prime members will, temporarily at least, get an even better deal than that - the stick promises 50-percent more power than Google's dongle as well as 1080p Full HD video and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound, together with three options for remote control.

Kindle Fire HDX 7 lands on AT&T to help Fire Phone sales

Kindle Fire HDX 7 lands on AT&T to help Fire Phone sales

You may have heard that Amazon is entering a trying financial period, and that its first ever smartphone isn't helping its cause. Some are pinning the Fire Phone's failure on its exclusive availability to AT&T but now the carrier seems to be trying to make up for lost time, sales, and pride. It is announcing the arrival of the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX, the 7-inch kind, and although you can buy it on its own, AT&T will give you a slightly sweeter deal if you purchase it with the Fire Phone.

Amazon loses big, but the worst is yet to come

Amazon loses big, but the worst is yet to come

It's not looking especially good at Amazon right this minute for investors. While operating loss was $25 million USD in Amazon's Q3 of 2013, this quarter (one year later), they've reported operating loss at $544 million. Net loss, on the other hand, was $41 million at this time last year and $437 million this quarter. On a more positive side, Amazon introduced several new products this quarter and increased net sales 20% to $20.58 billion this quarter compared to $17.09 billion one year ago. It may be time for a fire sale, nonetheless.
