They're announcing the Kindle is being dropped due to an Apple lawsuit accusing them of copyright infringement. The lawsuit is based on iPhone and Kindle both having two syllables in their name.

@eraten: Also both contain the letters, "I", "E", and "N". That's too many to not be a blatant ripoff.

@eraten: and don't forget - they are both rectangular in shape

I believe the Amazon announcement has been scheduled for a while longer than the Apple one, but I think we all knew at some point in Sept apple was going to do one so Amazon is definitely beating them to the punch.

I've gotten over my fascination with tablets (mine is a table decoration since I got bored with custom roms and the PITA it gets to be to erase-flash-repeat every week). But I am looking forward to a new kindle - all I ever used my 2lb tablet for. I hope they have a cost effective model that doesn't involve the "special offers" adware.

@mkentosh: someday I hope to be worthy of a press announcement. I just hope it's not while I'm behind bars.

A new Kindle Fire. Last week they announced the Fire was sold out, only reason to stop producing the old ones are to clear out inventory for a new model.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess they are going to announce an Amazon smartphone.

Tried to keep up with the live feed, but too much to do right now. I look forward to a summary.

@belyndag: I think the gist was that Amazon has found new and inventive ways to make me give them my money. I am not entirely happy about this.

Slapped the nexus 7 and ipad around the room. The 8.9 HD looks good for 299. The 4G LTE model with 250 MB will be gone in a flash. Embarassing to have 25 MB and LTE speeds tied to any usage. Also based on the how it was mentioned it's with AT&T.

@meh3884: The special offers are basically just a screen saver, very unobtrusive. I used to not even pay attention to them, but then I found a couple that I liked, so now I look at them. They're kind of like a "Deal."

vote-for2vote-against

well it looks like they didnt kick their stupid operating system or their limited app store :-P I like my fire for what it is but the Amazon OS version of Android is the #1 thing that stops it from being like another tablet.

Couple that with alot of the cool stuff it does ties in with Prime therefore another 80 every year ... Ill pass on the upgrade

Free ice cream! (Must be present to redeem offer)
