Amazon to Hold a Press Conference on 6 September

August 23rd, 2012 by · 8 Comments · conferences & trade shows

Do you recall how I said there was a new KF and Kindle coming this fall (FCC paperwork)? Amazon is probably going to announce them 2 weeks from today.

I just got the invite, and the press conference will be held in Santa Monica this time around.¬† Amazon is breaking with their past habit of scheduling launches in NYC. I’m still thinking about going, but if I do I expect to see that 10″ Kindle Fire, a new Kindle, and the new dock for the Kindle Fire. That last item is going to work with the larger KF, I think.

The new location suggests other possibilities, like a greater emphasis on the media abilities of the KF. That would fit well with the new dock.

    For some reason, I have the feeling they’ll have a little something else to show.
    A PDA sized tablet, maybe the Phone, or a set-top box…

      “A PDA sized tablet”

      That is one I have not heard before. Would a PDA sized tablet be like an IPOD?

        Or the Samsung Galaxy Player.
        Or the increasingly popular 5in android phones.
        Or a dirt-cheap color 5in LCD Kindle.

        I’m not loking to start a rumor or anything, but I just have a feeling that Amazon is “up to something”: Amazon has been talking about doing more gadgets and looking at the landscape there is room for several “hit them where they ain’t” possibilities.

    two things a newer kindle ereader with a newer interface that is made for two things reading and audiobook heck with apps, the other is KF 2 with a camera

    Before anyone blast me why does a kindle eink reader need games and applications when KF that is apps driven needs to be the primary store for apps
