Back in November, a rumor surfaced that Amazon was set to release a new version of their Kindle, the Kindle 2. The rumor set release date to happen sometime in Q1 of 2009. Guess what? Yup, folks in the press world have been invited to an event in NYC on February 9th, 2009 at the Morgan Library. Course, the press invite doesn’t get specific, but given it’s from Amazon and coincides with the aforementioned date, I’d have to agree, and say there is a more then strong likelihood of a new and update e-reader from Amazon hitting the market.
Shamefully I didn’t receive an invite, but nor would I attend since I live and LA and have to trek to Chicago Feb 12th as it is.
