Massive Fire on the way from Amazon Featured


Shopping giant Amazon is planning a 10-inch version of its popular low-cost Android tablet the Kindle Fire, according to fresh rumours.

The news comes not from an anonymous source for once but from NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim, who says that production of a 10.1-inch Fire will commence in the third quarter this year.

The analyst told Cnet the oversized tablet will have a 2560x1600 pixel display, equating to 299 pixels per inch, sharper than Apple's 264-pixel-per-inch iPad retina display. 

The model follows a smaller 7-inch model, originally released in 2011, while Amazon also released an 8.9 inch model last year.

Mr Shim also said that Amazon is also working to improve the resolution of its existing tablets, bringing them in line with that 300-ppi benchmark it has now set for itself.

The tablets run a heavily modified version of Android which includes access to the Amazon Appstore, streaming movies and TV shows, and Kindle's e-books.

As of October 2012, the Kindle Fire is the second-best-selling tablet after Apple's iPad, with about 7 million units sold according to estimates by Forrester Research.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
