Amazon has sent out invitations to several overseas journalists inviting them to a press conference where it is widely expected that they will reveal new Kindles.The press event will take place on the morning of 6 September in Santa Monica, California.
Previous speculation on the new devices had the reveal date pegged for July this year but a Kindle Fire is possibly going to be made official early next month instead. It is also being reported that there may even be multiple models introduced and perhaps an e-ink Kindle with built in lighting.
Rumours have vaguely described the new devices’ specs, saying that a camera and physical volume-control buttons will form part of the new hardware. A 10.1″ and two 7″ models have also been said to be in the offing with one of the 7″ devices featuring a screen resolution of 1280 x 800. The other 7″ will supposedly feature a more standard 1024 x 600 display.
