The sometimes-dubious DigiTimes is reporting that Amazon may have taken a detour from their tablet roadmap. Initially rumored to be considering a 7-inch and 10-inch model, plans may have changed. The 7-inch model surfaced as the Amazon Kindle Fire, and the 10-inch slate rumored to house a quad-core processor was said to be put on ice pending the success of its smaller counterpart. The larger tablet could still make a debut sometime next year, but Amazon’s display suppliers have received orders from the retailer for 8.9-inch panels. The new size could launch before or even in place of the 10-inch model.
