As predicted, Amazon revealed its second-generation Kindle Fire tablet yesterday at its LA press launch. In fact, it’s a family of products called Kindle Fire HD: a $199 model with a seven-inch screen, a $299 model with an 8.9-inch screen, and a $499 model that combines the 8.9-inch screen with 4G connectivity, where customers will pay $49.99 a year for 250MB a month of data and 20GB of storage on the Amazon Cloud service. Music is very much part of the package too: the company’s MP3 Store and Cloud Music service will be bundled in, and Amazon is also talking up the tablet’s Dolby-powered audio quality. An interesting note: all three tablets appear to be ad-supported, showing Amazon’s special offers on their lock screens.
