Amazon Holding Press Event on September 6, New Kindles Incoming?

On Thursday, September 6, Amazon is holding a press event to introduce something. The invite itself doesn’t give off any hints, but with the rumors of new Kindle tablets on the horizon, one would guess that we may get a new slate or two. Could we see a 10″ device or will it be a beefed up 7-incher to battle the Nexus 7? Tough to tell, but we’ll be there to bring it to you.

    oldkia and vzn on the 5th, amazon on the 6th and apple on the 12th….

    Kindles are for reading. Reading is best done on e-ink. Hopefully they’ll have a nice glow-y e-ink (or higher res color e-ink) reader to best the latest Nook with glow. Who needs them to drop a tablet when the Nexus 7 is fresh out of the gate?

    • CapnShiner

      I’m hoping for new e-ink Kindles as well. A new Kindle Fire with updated components at the same price point to compete with the Nexus 7 would be interesting, as would a larger Kindle Fire, but all I care about is a dedicated reader with e-ink.

    The only way for Amazon to impress me is by finally giving us a Video app so I can enjoy my Prime Instant Videos on my Nexus7

  • EC8CH

    I like Amazon… but not enough to get locked into their walled garden.

    Sorry but N7> than Kindle for me.

  • MisterFrancisco

    They might introduce a beefed up 3G variant of the Fire…

  • Booyah

    How many announcements can tech companies make in a week span? (Amazon, Moto, Apple….?)

    Really would like to see them get rid of the HORRIBLE skin they used on the Kindle Fire. Also, ICS (or JB), Play Store access, more storage, cameras, and quad core.

    • Allen Byrd

      Ugh. Yes. I HATE the skin they put on it. Absolutely HATE it.

      • Do the Carlton

        That’s why I launch my Kindle straight to Go Launcher EX. Gives you a more standard Android homescreen set up with the benefits of Amazon Prime Video!

    • Droid4LifeDawg

      Would be nice, but Amazon don’t upgrade, they just make a better version for you to buy…

    • michael arazan

      That horrible skin is what makes them unique, right? As long as people keep buying their crap they’re going to keep it unfortunately. And I’m guessing their new product might be an amazon phone, with the same “unique” skin too, or a 10 inch tablet for better to stream movies and shows with. If it is a 10 inch tab I bet its gonna be the cheapest 10 inch tab out there to date.

    Omigosh Omigosh Omigosh……..
    Heavily skinned Amazon version of Honeycomb, horrible Netflix playback, Amazon App of the Day, and NO Play Store with smart app updates !!!!
    Just kidding, sorta…but I am interested in seeing how Amazon will try to change the game and price point again….bigger/better screen, more storage, cameras, quad-core, 3G?

  • mustbepbs

    This just in:

    Nexus 7

    That is all.

  • nightscout13

    Kindle Fire Nitro Pro G1 MAXX

  • First. Ha.

    • OreoMan

      Judging by the time displayed within other comments, I would say you’re a close third.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio



    AmazonOS may finally have arrived.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I mean if Amazon sent an Invite to US at Droid_life . . .must be tablet related.
