The Digital Reader has done some clever sleuthing to find a filing by Amazon’s shell company, Harpers LLC. The filing shows a fairly large, 10-inch 4:3 screen device that should launch in the fall.
You can see the filing here.
The image doesn’t give us much – just the sticker placement on the device – but since the rest of the files will be unsealed in December, we can expect this thing to launch a month or so before that. Amazon uses front companies to file applications for their new products, thereby ensuring some modicum of IP security.
While a single line drawing of a tablet does not a confirmation make, we can at least expect to see a bigger Kindle Fire coming out before the holidays, potentially for the same market that was shopping for the monstrous Kindle DX.
