As if there weren’t enough technology-related press events happening in September – with Nokia/Microsoft, Apple, and Nintendo already penciled in – Amazon has thrown their hat in the ring and invited press to a September 6th event in Santa Monica.
The invites just went out, so details are slim at the moment, but the company is likely to announce new products in their Kindle line. The successor to the 7″ Kindle Fire tablet is probably a lock, seeing as it has been rumoured for quite some time already, and we can probably expect updates for the rest of the company’s eBook readers as well. Of course there is always the possibility that we will finally see the oft-rumoured Amazon smartphone, affectionately dubbed the “Kindle Spark”, which the company is said to be building in partnership with Foxconn. Amazon last updated their Kindle products back in September 2011, which included the aforementioned Kindle Fire, an updated $79 Kindle, and the all-new Kindle touch.
CE will be covering Amazon’s announcements live on September 6th, and be sure to check back all month long for what is sure to be a crazy and exciting month in the tech world!
