What's the Future of the Kindle Fire?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss emerging trends in technology.

In today's edition, Jeremy and Eric take their last discussion on Kindle Fire profit plays a step further. With the 7-inch model seeing impressive sales volume, it's reasonable that Amazon.com could put more of a hardware emphasis on the next generation of the Fire, which could include rolling out a 3G and/or 10-inch model. In the event that Amazon rolls out more high-end models, could other component suppliers have an opportunity to win business in the Kindle Fire line?

Amazon is just one company riding the mobile wave to record profits The Motley Fool has a just released free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that's also absolutely dominating the exploding market in China. Inside the report we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend.

    My bf got me a Kindle Fire for my birthday and I love it. It's lightweight and easy to use straight out of the box. The first thing I recommend anyone with a new Kindle do is install the nook app. We got our instructions from www.kindlemad.com through google.

    It basically unlocks all the Android marketplace apps and unlocks the device. Super happy!
