Amazon to kindle Fire tablet tomorrow

Based on BlackBerry tab?

Security for virtualized datacentres

Amazon's Kindle tablet will be called the Fire and be based on the same core technology as RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook, it has been claimed a day ahead of the retailer's big announcement.

That's according to Tech Crunch, which claims that while the Fire will be shown off on stage by CEO Jeff Bezos, punters won't get their mitts on it until the second week of November.

The website also reckons the fondleslab will incorporate a Texas Instruments dual-core OMAP chip clocked at around 1.2GHz.

Leaks already indicate the Fire - if that's indeed what it will be called - will be a 7in tablet running Android 2.1. This model may be followed by a larger ten-incher.

As the Fire was designed and constructed by RIM's tablet maker, Quanta, it will apparently have a similar look to that of the BlackBerry PlayBook. The software that runs it, though, is said to be much smoother and provides access to a far greater range of content.

I guess all should be revealed tomorrow. We'll be back with the official info for you then. ®
