We have a much better idea of what the hardware for at least one new Kindle Fire will look like today, and now Reuters is reporting a bit of information about the software. Apparently Amazon will follow Apple in eschewing Google Maps in favor of a different mapping solution, but Amazon will reportedly use Nokia's mapping technology. Nokia is already providing much of the power behind Bing maps.
The next Kindle Fire will have location services
Our source confirms that the next Kindle Fire will have location services, though it's not yet clear whether that means it will include a proper GPS receiver or just use Wi-Fi location. It's also unclear whether or not Nokia Maps would be available at launch, what we've seen so far of the new tablet doesn't include Nokia Maps. One way or the other, we should find out on September 6th.
