An NPD DisplaySearch analyst hinted that Amazon may be releasing more than one new model of its Amazon Kindle Fire 2 tablets.

Richard Shim, an NPD DisplaySearch analyst, indicated that at least three new models of the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 tablets are set to be released by the company. The pronouncement of Shim were supposedly based on sources coming from the supply chain of Amazon or the companies that are tasked in production the components as well as put together the devices themselves.

Shim indicated that among the new models of the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 that will be released by the company one will have a screen size of 8.9 inches while the other three models will be seven-inch devices. Among the features that will vary for the devices are the resolutions of the display, presence of a camera, and 4G connectivity options.

The upcoming models of the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 tablets will have different manufacturing schedules with two of the seven-inch models to be manufactured starting next month, the third seven-inch Amazon Kindle Fire 2 model is scheduled for September production, while the production of the 8.5-inch model of the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 is scheduled to start sometime in the fourth quarter.

However there may be changes in the production schedule of the upcoming models of the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 depending on the orders that are received each month. If reports on the upcoming models of the tablet offering of Amazon are accurate, the 4G connectivity option and higher resolution may allow it to best the Google Nexus 7 tablet.

However it still has a lot of ground to cover when it comes to going up against the new iPad of Apple. The upcoming models of the Amazon Kindle Fire 2 will have a pixel density of around 216 pixels per inch. In comparison the new iPad of Apple will feature a pixel density of 264 PPI.

For the moment the processor and possible price tag of the upcoming Amazon Kindle Fire 2 remains uncertain although speculations have pointed to the possibility that it will use either the quad-core Tegra 3 processor of Nvidia or the OMAP processors of Texas Instruments.
