Big screens, small screens, with and without Windows, some with keyboards, and everything in between. Here's a sneak peek at the diverse batch of tablets expected this fall.

If Amazon follows its launch schedule from last year, the new Kindle Fire will debut just as the holiday season kicks off. Whispers of a second-generation Fire have circulated for months, and the chatter has grown louder since Google unveiled its Nexus 7, a superior tablet that matches the Kindle Fire's aggressive $199 price.
What can we expect from the Kindle Fire 2? A recent AllThingsD report, citing inside sources, describes a next-gen Fire with a sharper display, possibly with a new 1.60 aspect ratio and 1280-by-800-pixel resolution. (Other 7-inch slates, including the Nexus 7, Toshiba Thrive, and T-Mobile Springboard, are also 1280-by-800.) A thinner and lighter build is expected, as is a front-facing camera for video chatting. Some reports claim Amazon might offer larger tablets, too, including 8.9- and 10-inch models.
