New rumors from DigiTimes suggest that the second generation Kindle Fire may be entering production already. For those that somehow missed it, the Amazon Kindle Fire has been an enormous success. Despite the fact that it is somewhat lacking in several areas, the little tablet has already become the number two tablet in the world in less than a full financial quarter of availability.

Previously, it was speculated that Amazon was also working on a 10-inch version of the tablet, and that it would potentially be powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core chip. Those details still remain under wraps, but a new report indicates that Amazon "placed initial chassis orders with Taiwan-based Catcher Technology for a new Kindle Fire tablet, suggesting production could begin soon." If this rumor turns out to be true, it is possible we will see the next-gen Kindle Fire as early as the second quarter of this year.

Keep your fingers crossed that this "intel" is accurate! :)
