Amazon Kindle Fire with 1280 x 800 pixel screen in Q3 2012?

Posted on Monday, July 09 2012 @ 20:08:34 CEST by


AllThingsD reports Amazon is planning to release a next-gen Kindle Fire in Q3 2012. The site heard the new model will be thinner and lighter, it will have a built-in camera and an improved screen with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution.
And, more importantly, developers familiar with the device have been instructed to build their apps for a display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, which is a bit different than the 1024 x 600 display of the current Kindle Fire.

Not only will that apparently make it sharper and more vibrant, it will give it a different aspect ratio, as well. In other words, the display has an entirely new width-to-height ratio.

“The really interesting thing here is that the screen shape is changing slightly: From an aspect ratio of 1.71 (tall and narrow in its standard Portrait mode) to an aspect ratio of 1.60,” DisplayMate President Raymond Soneira told AllThingsD, when asked about what that means.
