The tech world flew from a fun-filled day in NYC and converged on the opposite coast for an Amazon event today, and they got together to witness the unveiling of Amazon’s new Kindle Fire tablet. It’s a direct sequel on the version from last year, and it still shares that perfect book-like 7 inch display size that we’ve all come to know and love.
In fact, the device looks a lot like the version of yesteryear. Amazon says it has a newer processor, double the RAM (so 1GB), better battery, and better performance — 44% better. We don’t have a ton of info on the hard specs just yet, but we’re sure Amazon will post all of that shortly.
Oh, and we have pricing and availability: September 14th for $159. How’s that for a bombshell of a price point? You can pre-order it starting today at Amazon.com.
