You've got to love the internet rumour mill: when a big-name device ships without any of the features the rumour-mongers predicted, the response is always the same: "Yeah, but we meant the next version!"
It's no surprise, then, that while the Kindle Fire has only been shipping for a few hours the internet is already speculating about its successor - a successor which will, inevitably, include some of the things the first Kindle Fire didn't. So what do we actually know?
Kindle Fire 2 release date
The Kindle Fire 2 is set to land in spring 2012, according to DigiTimes, which reported that Quanta Computer has already been given the order to start producing the new device.
The Kindle Fire 2 screen will be bigger
The Telegraph - and many others - predicts a Kindle Fire 2 / iPad 3 summertime tablet fight-fest based entirely on a single post by the not-always-that-accurate DigiTimes, which says that the Kindle Fire 2 will have an 8.9-inch touch screen and will begin manufacturing in the first quarter of 2012.
