CNET heard rumors that Amazon is targeting a July 31 launch date for its second-generation Kindle Fire. According to previous rumors, this new device will feature a 1280 x 800 pixel screen and a price tag of $199.
Our source didn't mention the higher resolution display but did say that the new tablet would have a camera and physical volume-control buttons (many users complained that the Kindle Fire only has on-screen volume controls).
No word on whether Bluetooth will be included, what processor will power the device, and whether Amazon will stick with 8GB of built-in memory and no expansion capabilities. It will also be interesting to see whether Amazon, as rumored, will attempt to subsidize the cost of the new Kindle Fire with an ad-supported Special Offers version.
