Amazon just has sent out Techsnapr an invitation — via an email — for a September 6 press conference, which will be held in Santa Monica, California. We’re quite unfamiliar to what Amazon is planning to unveil right there, as the full text of the invitation (screenshot above) only reads, ““Please Join Us for an Amazon Press Conference.” This, of course, leaves us confused and curious at the time.
In my opinion, with the Google Nexus 7 now thoroughly walloping the Kindle Fire in the bang-for-your-buck department, the Amazon tablet is in desperate need of an update. That said; a new Kindle Fire2 Tablet is rumored to be announced at the event.
Moreover, a number of other outlets, including several Android blogs, were also invited, so the event appears to feature at least one Android-related announcement. Where, only one product comes in my mind — at the time being –- the Amazon Android smartphone, we’ve been hearing rumors about for awhile now.
We’ve also heard rumblings for some time that the new 6-incher color eInk eReader and successor to the Kindle Fire are coming. We should get more information on Sep 6, stay tuned.
