Amazon Kindle Tablet Unveiled Wednesday

We have been talking up the Kindle tablet for some time now, and it appears that we will finally get a full look at it on Wednesday!

Amazon has scheduled a press conference in New York on Wednesday to unveil the new device to the public and let everyone finally get a peek at it.

There is a lot of buzz around this device, and it is pretty obvious that Amazon is gearing up for big sales around the holiday season! I think this is a very smart move by the company, and I guarantee they will move a bunch of these units as holiday gifts. The initial offering, unless they change something at the last minute, will be a 7 inch tablet built on the Android framework. Right now, in early 2012, they plan to unveil a 10 inch model as well.

In addition, as we have mentioned before, the current Kindle models will hang around. This is good news for those of you who like having the advantages that the e-ink screen offers, such as little to no glare and no eye strain.

We will cover everything here on Wednesday and let you know what comes out of the press conference.

    Will any of the new kindles support One Bus Away, the Seattle metro real time bus tracker program? I love my old kindle but would upgrade in a heart beat if I could also utilize the One Bus Away tool. Also, it is my understanding there is no monthly fee for the 3G kindle like there is for Apple products such as the iTouch? Can someone confirm that? Thanks! Nancy

    Hey Nancy, not sure on the One Bus Away, but the 3G does not have a monthly fee.
