Foxconn making Kindle Fire 2 already?

We haven't even got over the excitement of the first one yet, nor have us Brits even seen it land on our sun-drenched shores, but it looks like a sequel could already be in the making.

Digitimes is reporting that Foxconn is in the process of putting together Kindle Fire 2 units, with plans to ship them out in the first half of 2012. 

We would say take this one with a pinch of salt, the Kindle Fire itself has only just come out and Digitimes isn't always the most reliable of sources. That said the website could be right on the money as there have been rumours circulating about a sequel elsewhere. Still though, perhaps we will see the Kindle 2 arrive in the UK. 

"With Apple's iPad 2, Sony's Tablet S and Amazon's second-generation Kindle Fire all produced by Foxconn, the sources estimated that close to 80% of worldwide tablet PC shipments will be supplied by the company in the future." said Digitimes's source. 

Quanta Computer currently puts together the $199 Amazon Kindle Fire, but has apparently lost the next generation of the tablet to Foxconn.

Who knows, a super quick sequel to the already impressively well priced and powerful Kindle Fire? We sure hope so. There is the possibility it emerges as a 3G version of the tablet or even one with a bigger screen. Perhaps a quad-core processor? Impossible to know but exciting stuff anyway... 

 

What do you think? Do we need a sequel already? Let us know in the comments below ...
