Amazon is sending out invitations to a press conference on September 28 in New York City. Though details of the press conference are as sparse as they come, it is believed that Amazon will be announcing at least one of their hotly anticipated tablets, which is slated to launch sometime in October or November.
It’s been a long road since we first caught wind that Amazon was working on a slew of Android devices back in May, and it appears Amazon is all set to reveal what they’ve been working on. It’s likely we won’t see more than one device at next week’s conference, and not the rumored “Coyote” or “Hollywood” tablets we’d originally suspected. We expect Amazon to announce a 7″ Kindle with Android tablet, similar to the device TechCrunch went hands-on with earlier this month.
This tablet would be aimed at the low-end of the market and could come in at the ultra-low price of $249 when it launches in the next few months. Regardless of what Amazon has in store for us, they appear to be all set to take the tablet market by storm next week.
