For months, a $99 7 inch tablet has been rumored, but has never been delivered. Now, the latest speculation has Amazon ready to deliver a $99 7 inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD. The tablet would offer resolution of 1280 x 600 which improves upon the 1024 x 600 resolution on the most current 7 inch Amazon device. In addition to that tablet, Amazon produces an 8.9 inch version of the Kindle Fire with a 1280 x 600 panel. Using the same resolution on a smaller screen should improve the pixel density on the rumored model. The tablet is expected to be powered by a TI OMAP processor

I will finally get a tablet if this is true. thumb.gif

I've used the 8.9 inch HD version and it is an excellent tablet. Too bad it doesn't run stock android, but it's still pretty good. Especially if you have prime and use the amazon ecosystem a lot.

"It's not happening - we are already at the lowest price points possible for that hardware," a spokesperson said in an email to PCMag.
