Digitimes is reporting that the rumored 10.1-inch Kindle Fire, due out later this year, will now feature an 8.9-inch screen. Digitimes uses supply chains as their source, and says that a 10.1 inch tablet may be in the timeline however — just not this year.

Amazon is likely to change its product roadmap by shifting the display size of its next-generation Kindle Fire to 8.9-inch instead of 10.1-inch as originally planned, according to sources in Amazon’s supply chain. Following the launch of the 8.9-inch tablets, Amazon may also release 9.7- to 10.1-inch models in 2012, said the sources.
