Even as other device manufacturers are looking to producing smaller versions of their products, Amazon is looking at the opposite direction since it may be aiming to produce a ten-inch version of the Amazon Kindle Fire. This was revealed recently by NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Sim.

The company is gradually increasing the size of its widely-popular tablet. It started with a seven-inch model in November 2011 before unveiling an 8.9-inch version in September 2012.

Shim said the ten-inch model of the Amazon Kindle Fire will feature a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 2560 by 1600. This is equivalent to a 300 PPI pixel density, which is bigger than that of the Retina model of the iPad 4 of Apple that has a pixel density of 264 PPI.

The resolution of the rumored tablet will be similar to the resolution of the Google Nexus 10. Shim added that mass production of the screen display for the ten-inch version of the Amazon Kindle Fire will begin by the third quarter of the year.

Shim also said that the company may release new versions of the 7-inch and the 8.9-inch of the Amazon Kindle Fire. The new versions will have a pixel density of 300 PPI.

The market share of Amazon in the tablet market is currently at 3.7 percent, putting it fourth on the list, according to IDC.

No statements were released by Amazon in connection to the reports on the possible release of a ten-inch model of the Amazon Kindle Fire.
