What’s next in line for the Kindle family? Rumors suggest an even larger and possibly more efficient Kindle Fire is planned for 2012. In the e-reader space, Amazon may be taking things to the next level by introducing a Kindle with a color screen.

This new rumor comes from DigiTimes who cites the Economic Daily News as the source for the information. Amazon will supposedly ship the new 6-inch e-readers in March at the rate of three million each month. E Ink Holdings is said to be manufacturing the displays.

If this is true, we’re left wondering how long it will take Barnes & Noble to follow suit.
