It looks obvious that we might have a name of Amazon’s second Android based tablet, which is expected to come in the first quarter of 2012. Several domain name purchases from Amazon suggest that the next tablet will be named Kindle Ice.
Various tech blogs have been oozing out with rumors of the second Amazon tablet for quite some time now and our latest bit of information gives us a name for that tablet. According to that info, Amazon purchased over 500 domain names in past to secure online presence of its upcoming tablets and these domain name are versions of three different names – Kindle Fire, Silk Browser and Kindle Ice, yes Kindle Ice.
Happening became more interesting with the acquisition of more Kindle Ice related domain names from a Syracuse, New York resident Jeffrey Casserino, who got lucky in grabbing some domain names, while Amazon was busy making the abovesaid 500 purchases.
We already have seen the launch of Kindle Fire and Silk browser, but the name Kindle Ice is the only one unheard of till now and it would decently fit with the naming scheme if Amazon goes forward with it for this second Android tablet.
One vital question is, why would Amazon make such an effort of acquire domain names if they were not related to something important?
We all know the Kindle Fire is a make shift arrangement until Amazon comes with its own designed tablet. For our readers who don’t know, Fire is based on RIM Playbook reference design and next tablets would be designed by Amazon itself. Kindle Ice is expected to be arriving with an 8.9 inch display, but there are no further specifications available.
