No other tablet has intimidated the Apple iPad as much as Amazon’s Kindle Fire. With millions of sales since its launch in the market, the Kindle Fire has taken out a large chunk out of Apple’s share in the tablet market thanks to a portable size and great pricing.
It however could not appeal to buyers who want a big tablet with the small 7 inch Kindle Fire screen where tablets like Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy tabs made the impact. With the news or probably rumors that Amazon Kindle Fire is going to be launched in a bigger 10.1 inch avatar, people have already started to speculate if the new Kindle Fire will take the rest of the share too.
Let us check some features the Kindle Fire 10.1 may have.
1. A Larger 10.1 inch Screen
Tech pundits were always speculating of a Kindle Fire with a bigger screen to compete against the likes of 9.7 inch Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy tab. Talks were about a 10.1 inch and a 8.9 inch Kindle Fire, it however turns out that Amazon is not interested in the 8.9 inch version and instead wants to go for the bigger 10.1 inch Kindle Fire.
2. Better Battery
With a bigger screen, a battery with higher capacity will be definitely great. Also the seven hour battery backup with the Kindle Fire 7.0 was not something people appreciated where other tablets like Samsung Galaxy tab and Apple iPad with bigger screens could manage 10. It is hence expected that the Kindle Fire 10.1 comes with a better battery.

3. Higher Memory Space
Kindle Fire came with only 8GB of memory and no option to add extra memory except for the cloud storage. With the 10.1 inch tablet, Amazon may consider providing more memory and may come in 16 GB and higher variants.
4. More Powerful Chipset
The Kindle Fire 10.1 is expected to come with the best in the market- Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core processor. This will make sure that the Kindle Fire does not lack behind other tablets available in the market and especially since the bar has been raised by the new iPad.
5. Operating System
The Android V4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be the preferred operating system if the 10 inch version is to be made. ICS has received some of the greatest review and is the first choice for all Smart Phone and tablet manufacturing companies nowadays.
6. Price Tag
The Kindle Fire (7.0) did a great business for its features, usability and most important- The price. At $199, it was a great tablet for those who don’t want to invest a large amount of money on a costly iPad. A price tag of around $299 can give serious competition to other tablets in the market.
