    According to a new report, Amazon's original plan to introduce a new 10.1 Inch Android tablet next year after the launch of the Kindle Fire, has been changed. Now, instead of a 10.1 Inch tab, the online retailer plans to launch an 8.9 Inch first. Also, according to the report, they still may plan to release a another version later on that could be 9.7 to 10.1 inches. Supposedly, the device is already in production and its parts are being made at Chunghwa Picture Tubes and LG Display. The picture above is of the original 7-inch Kindle Fire.

    In a way this makes sense to me because I've found 10.1" tablets to be a little large to use as a handheld device for extended periods of time.
