DIGITIMES NOW PREDICTING 8.9 DISPLAY ON NEXT TABLET"
Digitimes' Yenting Chen and Steve Shen report that Amazon is "likely" to shift the display size of its next-generation Kindle Fire to 8.9-inch "instead of" the originally planned 10.1-inch one reported for awhile.
They cite "sources in Amazon's supply chain."
' Amazon's current 7-inch panel suppliers Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT) and LG Display (LGD) reportedly have begun to prepare production capacities for 8.9-inch displays, added the sources. '
They add though that Amazon "may" also release 9.7-to-10.1-inch models in 2012, according to their sources.
In other words, be prepared for anything. Sources talk but nothing's done until it's done.
