    Amazon's Next Kindle May Have Slipped Stealthily Through the FCC

    Apparently, Amazon likes to be sneaky about sending its products to the FCC. Some sleuths over at the Digital Reader did some detective work and may have found a new Kindle tablet that recently passed its FCC certs. The interesting thing is that the tablet was submitted to the FCC through a "front" corporation rather than directly from Amazon. Additionally, this is not the first time that Amazon has done this. It is, in fact, their typical MO. Here's a quote that explains things in detail,

    The Digital Reader has done some detective work and come across what may be an FCC filing of Amazonís next tablet, believing that the online internet retailer may have used a front company to file the documents in order to sneak the tablet under the radar.

    The filings were issued by a company called Harpers LLC, with The Digital Reader tracing the company back to an address rented by CSC Entity Services. The listed name on the paperwork, Stephen Facciolo, is apparently the President of Harpers, who just so happens to also work for CSC. Meanwhile, his name appears on LinkedIn for CSC, with the website concluding that CSC is the first front company that Amazon employed to set up the second front company.

    The Digital Reader stipulates that this isnít the first time that Amazon has gone about its FCC filings in such a roundabout way. Amazon reportedly used three front companies for its Kindle Fire submission to the FCC the day before the official announcement back in September 2011. While The Digital Reader may have cracked the code, the actual FCC filing leaves much to the imagination, with little to no details surrounding Amazonís next Kindle Fire iteration.
    There is one other strange thing that came from this filing. Apparently, the aspect ratio of this device is a 4:3 instead of the usual 16:9. This would be a strange move on Amazon's part to basically offer a tablet with a backwards design philosophy. We will keep an eye out and let you know if anything more comes to light.

    I just want a bigger, decent looking screen to read my graphic novels on. 7 inches isn't cutting it. And I still read novels on my Kindle 3 because the glare bugs new on the Fire.
