When Amazon was first rumored to be making an Android tablet, it was revealed that they would be working on various-sized tablets for different markets. Alongside the 7 inch Kindle Fire that has already been released, a 10.1 inch version was  rumored to be in the works.

It looks like those plans may still be in order. DigiTimes often gets information from component producers regarding what kind of parts each OEM is ordering. The most common information they get regards displays and they usually serve as good indication of what’s to come.

Well, it looks like Amazon’s still ordering up 8.9 inch and 10.1 inch displays. We still do believe they have another range of tablets coming out but we’re not sure when and we’re not sure if they’ll be similar to the Kindle Fire.

We’d imagine they’d want to put Honeycomb on these bigger devices but their need to customize the interface and support their own ecosystem may keep them from doing so. We can only hope.
