Asus, the manufacturing partner of Google, is speeding up the production of this new device, which is expected to go beyond Amazon's current Kindle Fire. Though the launch date and availability have yet to be nailed down, the company is on schedule for the launch in about six weeks. However, Amazon is set to hold a media event on Thursday where it is expected to unveil new Kindle Fire models, which could potentially include a 3G or 4G LTE variant.
Trailing its competitors, Apple had offered the cellular data connectivity as early as 2010 with the launch of its hot pick, iPad. Infact, this year's third-generation iPad was the first Apple device to include high-speed 4G LTE connectivity. With the Wi-Fi Nexus 7 now available a 3G version rumored to be forthcoming, and Amazon apparently gearing up to debut new models, competition is heating up in the smaller tablet space.
