Looks like Amazon has decided to call their upcoming tablet the "Kindle Fire." That news comes from MG over at TechCrunch, who was given then info by unnamed sources. In addition, our pal Ryan from GDGT has posted information about why the Kindle Fire will so closely resemble the BlackBerry PlayBook. As it turns out, the group that typically handles the Kindle design, Lab 126, wasn't used. Instead, since Amazon wanted to get this thing out for the holidays, it was outsourced to Quanta, the same original design manufacturer that designed the PlayBook. Amazon will be holding a press conference on Wednesday to announce the Kindle Fire, and we'll have all the details right here as it happens.
