Foxconn set to land Kindle Fire sequel production

Foxconn is said to have received the orders to build Amazon's next-generation Kindle Fire tablet. Currently, Quanta is responsible for manufacturing the 7-inch Kindle Fire on sale now. According to Digitimes with the iPad 2, and Sony's Tablet S on its books, the addition of the second-gen Kindle Fire will give Foxconn 80 percent of the global tablet market production.

The news arrives against reports that shipments of the touch panels for Amazon's current Kindle Fire tablets is expected to reach 1.5 million for both October and November due to the strong initial demand for the device.

Industry sources suggest that Kindle Fire tablet shipments are expected to reach 4.5 to 5 million by the end of the year. If accurate, this would make the Kindle Fire, the largest selling Android-based tablet to date.
