Rumor: Amazon building 9-inch Kindle Fire According to Pacific Crest analyst Chad Bartley, Amazon is building an 8.9-inch model of the Kindle Fire for release this year.
Additionally, the company will release an updated 7-inch model sometime "during the summer," less than a year after the launch of the first generation tablet.

For the year, Bartley has raised his shipment forecast to 15 million in 2012, up from 12.7 million.

Adds the analyst: "We believe there is an upward bias, particularly from the new 7- and 9-inch models, which we expect to launch in mid-2012."

There have been rumors of a family of Fire products for some time now, including a 4-inch smartphone, a 10-inch tablet and the "in-between" 8.9-inch tablet.
