DigiTimes reports that the firm has ordered Quanta Computer to begin producing another seven-inch tablet, rumoured to be the Kindle Fire 2.
Amazon recently launched the Kindle Fire in the US. Strong launch sales have led to the platform holder recruiting Nishoku as an additional chassis supplier. Three production outlets will be making parts for the e-reader as of 2012.
The Kindle Fire 2 is expected to sport a redesign following multiple comparisons to the BlackBerry PlayBook by reviewers.
As the first generation Kindle Fire is yet to be given a UK launch date, the reports of its successor have led to speculation that British customers may be in for an even longer wait.
Amazon is yet to announce the Kindle Fire 2.
