Amazon.com Inc. will release a new software update to the Kindle Fire that will increase performance of the tablet according to a report by The New York Times.
The publication this week said the company will release an over-the-air update in two weeks that will improve performance, multi-touch navigation, and the ability to edit the list of recent programs.
Amazon in Nov. said the Kindle Fire was the top-selling product at the company’s retail website through Black Friday weekend.
The company said the new color tablet topped sales across all categories, and customers purchased four times as many products in the Kindle family compared to the year prior.
Amazon in Sept. announced new Kindle models including the Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle 3G starting at $79.00.
