|Jeff Bezos in September 28, 2011 press briefing.|
We've been speculating on the release of new Kindle Fire, as well as updates to Amazon's line of Kindle e-readers. Looks like we will know more in two weeks!
The press conference will be in Santa Monica, California. Amazon holds very few press conferences, and it's not certain if this will be Kindle-related or not. But the timing would certainly make sense for an announcement about new Kindles, with the holiday shopping season nearing.
Others are speculating that, given the locale of the press briefing, it may be entertainment-related - such as new content for Amazon Prime customers. I'm dubious about that... Amazon normally announces that type of thing without an in-person press briefing. I expect the announcement will be splashier than that.
Thanks to Mashable for the tip!
