    An analyst at Pacific Crest, Chad Bartley, is predicting great things for the Amazon Kindle Fire. He has increased his initial projections for sales of the Kindle Fire this year from 12.7 Million to 14.9 Million. Additionally, he also either has some insider information, or feels overly confident in his personal crystal ball predictions. Bartley indicated that he believes Amazon is working on a 7-inch successor to the current Kindle Fire that will have some enhanced specs, and he also believes that Amazon is designing a 9-inch follow-up to the Kindle Fire. Of course, previously, we have heard these kinds of rumors before, so it could just be speculation on his part, but it would be interesting news if it turns out to be true.

    As always, we will keep our eye out for any new info and let you know.

    dgstorm, thank you, interesting news. Seems there will be a lot of new things, price changes, op systems debutting this year.

    I followed your link to the sources, and ultimately to the AllThingD's post that seems to have originated it.

    Good reading, and I liked an insightful comment there by mknopp :
