Just like Netbooks were the must have item only a few years ago, that trend has now shifted to tablets and no company wants to be left out of the fun. It has been expected for a while now that Amazon would be updating its Kindle Fire tablet soon but still has yet to do so. According to one person, however, they have bigger plans.

Demos Parneros, Staple's president of US retail, has claimed that Amazon is planning to release five or six new devices in a range of sizes. One of these tablets would even be as large as 10-inches and would be built to compete with the Apple iPad. No word was mentioned about whether or not one of these devices would be a smartphone.

In other news, Amazon has also announced plans to create a new R&D lab in London, England. The 47,000-square-feet space occupies the eighth floor in Glasshouse Yard. The R&D center will work on APIs for TVs, consoles, smartphones and PCs designed to be released around the globe. It will be interesting to see what new products come out of this R&D center.
