    Up until now details on Amazon's next generation Kindle Fire tablets have been sketchy. Luckily, a new report from BGR shares the skinny on three new Kindle Fire variants scheduled to arrive sometime this year. Here's the breakdown of what they were able to find out,
    • The first is a replacement for the 7-inch Kindle Fire Base Model and will come with a 7-inch screen, but will include higher resolution 1,280 x 800 display - this will basically come with the same display that is in the current Kindle Fire HD and replace the (1,024 x 600-pixel) IPS display in the first gen Kindle Fire.
    • The second is a new Kindle Fire HD which will also feature an improved 7-inch display. This one will be a 1,920 x 1,200-pixel resolution screen.
    • The third is an upgraded version of Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch. The updated version will bump up the pixel count to 2,560 x 1,600 (from its current 1,920 X 1,200). This will actually put its display ahead of the newest iPad in total pixel count.
    That's not all. Although no details were given about the internals, several tidbits were shared about the new design of the tabs and more. Here's a quote with the details,
