Kindle Fire 2 coming on September 6? Amazon schedules press conference
September is the new January or February in the mobile world, it seems. At least it is this year. Traditionally, most new mobile device announcements come either in January (during CES) or February (when MWC takes place). But now, September may just become the biggest month of this year in this respect.
Nokia will unveil its Windows Phone lineup on September 5. Motorola will probably announce the Droid RAZR HD and the Droid M on the same date. On September 12, Apple is widely rumored to unveil the next iPhone (and maybe even an iPad Mini too).
Now Amazon has decided to join the September party, by scheduling a press conference on September 6 – just one day after Nokia’s and Motorola’s respective events. What Amazon will show isn’t known, but we can of course assume that we’ll be seeing the oft-rumored Kindle Fire 2.
Google’s Nexus 7 surely has eaten into the original Kindle Fire’s sales, so Amazon needs to respond with a better specced tablet. Which it probably will, showing it alongside new Kindle e-book readers, making one week in September one of the most announcement-packed in history.
