Submission + - Amazon Prepping New Kindle Fire for Sept. 6 Launch: Rumor (slashdot.org)

Nerval's Lobster writes: "Amazon could be readying a new set of Kindle tablets for unveiling in early September. That’s the widespread speculation following the online retailer’s invitations to media for a Sept. 6 event in Santa Monica, Calif.

Even by the coy standards of most tech companies’ event invitations, Amazon’s is notably bereft of detail. It will take place at 10:30 AM PST at Barker Hangar, a noted (and quite large) event space. But the timing of the event is auspicious: with Apple rumored to be unveiling a smaller iPad in the near future, and the holiday shopping season a few months away, early September could prove the ideal time for Amazon to whip back the curtain from a new tablet and dominate the media conversation, at least for a few days."
