Speculation about a 10-inch Kindle Fire has been rampant for months, but a well-sourced report from the China Times states that the device could be coming to market by the end of Q2 2012. The word is that OEM’s and part suppliers are jostling to be involved in the near sure-fire success of the forthcoming product.

The report goes on to say that Amazon will have a heavier hand in part selection for the device, as opposed to the first go-round when Quanta, the manufacturer selected the parts. The aim of this strategy is to further reduce manufacturing costs. The Fire’s specs are solid, no one disputes that, but we worry that Amazon will sacrifice too much quality to hit its price point. All of that said, the market for a 10-inch Kindle Fire is, as of yet unclear. Then again, Bezos & co have never launched an unsuccessful Kindle.
