Seems Amazon is preparing Kindle Fire refresh and the boys at The Verge have gotten themselves first dibs on a purported leaked image of the device. Not much you can tell by looking at only the front of a device (they generally all look the same) and while we expect most of the upgrades will be found under the hood, we can’t help but notice the gawd-awful software keys along the right side of the device. Looks like we can expect, at the very least, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running on the new Kindle Fire.

Word is, Amazon will also launch their long-rumored 10-inch tablet along side their 7 incher but we wont have to wait much longer to find out. Amazon’s throwing a launch event for something next week and Phandroid will be on-hand to bring you the latest.

What do you guys think? Should Google be worried?
