Just as Google is about to unveil its rival to Kindle Fire - the Nexus tablet, a new report suggests that Amazon will be following it shortly with a new Kindle Fire 2. According to a CNET report, "Amazon is eying a July 31 unveiling for a new Kindle Fire tablet which would have a camera and physical volume-control buttons (many users complained that the Kindle Fire only has on-screen volume controls)".

The report also adds that "most likely Amazon will follow a similar product upgrade map to Apple, adding features along with design and performance improvements but maintaining the similar price points."

The original Kindle Fire, which went on sale in November, is the only rival to Apple iPad in the tablet market as of now.
