New 10-inch Amazon Fire tablet image leak sparks move to Android rumours

September 18, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Other Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

Amazon could be moving away from its Fire OS in favour of the more standard Android. This idea has come about through a leaked image of a new 10-inch Amazon Fire tablet which has a particularly Android-y display. Amazon has recently announced a a sub-$50 6-inch tablet that'll be with us by Christmas, as well as the new 4K Fire TV box, but they may have at least one more trick up their sleeve if this image is anything to go by. There's a chance this could be a hoax image but given the continued innovation from Amazon (as well as the 6-pack gimmick of the new tablets) this could be the next step in their bid to increase their tablet market share.

The up-and-coming Sailfish OS should be expanding its range now a round of Jolla Developer Tablets have set sail to the hands of coders. The OS will be tuned while the apps are developed, fast-tracking the progress of the software. Sailfish is predominantly a smartphone OS currently so the first tweaks will be making it run in line with the quirks of tablets.   The Developer Tablets have a 7.85-inch, 2048 x 1535-pixel display with an IPS panel. They run on an Intel Atom quad core processor, backed up by 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage.   Customers who got onboard the crowdfunding campaign can expect their tablets later in the year, when hopefully a new slew of apps will be available.   Via tablet-news
