Liveblogging the live blogs :)

Liveblogging the live blogs 🙂

I have to hit the road in fifteen minutes, but I’ll break what news  I can with you first about Amazon’s big announcement(s).

I’m mainly following Len Edgerly and Steve Windwalker at

The3 just posted a picture of what appears to be the AmTab from Engadget.

It shows options for

  • Newsstand
  • Books
  • Music
  • Videos
  • Docs
  • Apps
  • Web

It claims a $199 price, but that’s not official yet.

I’ll update this before I leave…

Update: Engadget

http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/28/live-from-amazons-tablet-event-in-nyc/

is also announcing a $79 reflective screen Kindle.

Jeff Bezos is onstage.

Sounds like he is pushing books first…that’s good.

I’m bouncing back and forth between a few things: Amazon press release page (they may update that before the presentation ends); Engadget; the front page of Amazon; Len and Steve. Just have minutes left before I have to go…

The Kindle Touch has been introduced…hm, if it’s really $79, maybe I should get it so I can test it out for you. If they restore the Associates, I can totally justify the cost. 🙂

Now there’s a picture of the Kindle Touch on Engadget…looks like it is almost all screen…that’s nice looking. Like a portal into a book, rather than a computer.

Gotta run…I’ll update this as soon as I can.
