Kindle Fire 2 leaked photos appear with Nokia Maps tip in tow

With less than a week before Amazon's next press event, several new bits of information have been leaked showing off a new Kindle Fire tablet and tipping Nokia as their new Maps pusher. As Amazon continues to attempt to work with Google's mobile OS Android with as little Google influence as possible, they've been tipped to be working with Nokia Oyj by Rueters where they say that not only will the next Kindle Fire model have either a GPS chip or Wi-fi triangulation, they'll be working with Nokia's own brand of GPS mapping rather than Google Maps.

If you needed any "official" proof from Amazon that their upcoming event was about to introduce a new generation of media tablets, this is it - the Kindle Fire has been announced as "sold out."

Amazon leaks tablet plans with propaganda poster

It would seem that Amazon's newest internal mantra is "loose lips sink ships" as a propaganda poster - likely one of many - has been photographed and send in to the tech press the company is hoping to avoid.

"A Secure Amazon Begins With YOU" encourages the poster.
