Amazon is widely expected to be releasing at least one new Kindle Fire tablet and a new Kindle e-reader. There will be an event on September 6th at 1:30PM ET and we have exclusive details on what we can expect next from the ebook giant.
We're expecting quite a few things out of tomorrow's Amazon event, and the company just helped heighten expectations a little bit more with a new commercial.
Multiple sources have confirmed to The Verge that Amazon is working on a smartphone that runs a variant of the Kindle Fire's Android-based operating system, and we're now hearing that the device will be shown to the press tomorrow.
CNET is reporting today that Amazon plans to release two 7-inch versions of the Kindle Fire at its event next week.
We have a much better idea of what the hardware for at least one new Kindle Fire will look like today, and now Reuters is reporting a bit of information about the software. Apparently Amazon will follow Apple in eschewing Google Maps in favor of a different mapping solution, but Amazon will reportedly use Nokia's mapping technology. Nokia is already providing much of the power behind Bing maps.
We've now received additional images of the Kindle Fire that Amazon is purported to be revealing at an event next week.

Kindle models are running out of stock from Amazon, suggesting that new models on are their way soon.
A new Kindle Fire successor rumor says that the tablet will have a 1280 x 800 screen and a thinner and lighter design. It's said that it will be available in Q3 of this year.
