Those rumors about a bigger Kindle Fire are off, says CNET: a source claims Amazon (AMZN) will introduce two 7" Fires on Sep. 6 - a brand-new tablet and a revamped version of the existing Fire - but nothing larger. If CNET is right, it could be a sign Amazon is worried a bigger/costlier Fire won't dent the regular iPad's high-end dominance, and the company is better off fighting it out with the iPad Mini and Nexus 7 on the low-end. Or it could just be Amazon thinks 7" tablets are better for reading (and thus selling e-books). (e-ink Kindle)

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, isn’t AMZN’s toy tablet simply for books & movies?
    AAPL’s I-Pad is amazing with everything to offer, so where is the comparison, a flat piece of plastic?
