Get ready for a refreshed slate of Amazon tablets and e-readers.
According to an inside account of Amazon’s purported plans, Amazon intends to release a new family of tablet computers and e-readers during the early part of September.
This week, Amazon sent out invitations to a media presently scheduled for a September 6th press conference in Santa Monica, California.
“Amazon’s event will take place at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica,” says Tricia Duryee of All Things D. “The venue appears to be an old building at the Santa Monica Airport, just outside of Los Angeles, that commonly hosts private events and film shoots. It’s big, just like this announcement will likely be.”
Now, there are all sorts of assumptions and rumors for what the next device will be. Mostly, people think it will be a device with a larger screen.
One week after Amazon’s scheduled media event, Apple is expected to unveil the 6th generation iPhone – an event that will undoubtedly claim tech headlines for the remainder of the month.
