Research and Markets: Amazon's 6 Kindle are Featuring Multi-Touch Screen and Total Build Plans Are Expected to Have Around 8-9M Units in 2012

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Amazon's 6 Kindle are featuring multi-touch screen and total build plans are expected to have around 8-9M units in 2012" report to their offering.

Amazon's new generation of 6 Kindle (E-Reader) remain to have two models in 2012. We anticipate 6 Kindle products are adding multi-touch screen function and this could significantly driven up Wintek and Cando's OGS (One-Glass-Solution) demand starting from May-June. We project Foxconn to supply total around 6-7M and 2-2.5M units of Celeste and Sauza respectively by the end of 2012. On the other hand, Foxconn may also supply 8.9 Kindle Fire starting from June and the total build plans are estimated to have 3-5M units in 2012.

Isaiah's Key Takeaways from Our Research:

1. Expecting 6 Kindle products to feature multi-touch screen function.

2. Mass production schedule for Foxconn is between June and July.

3. Is Amazon expected to launch 8.9 Kindle Fire in 2012?
