An confidential emailer forwarded me this invite to an Amazon press event. Will it announce the new Kindle which I like to call “Bubble Boy”*? A Kindle with wider geographical reach? That it’s totally destroying any other format out there (given its announcement that MS Lit and Adobe books will no longer be available on the Amazon site)? Guess away.
We’d like to invite you to an important Amazon.com press conference on Monday, February 9 at 10:00 am. The press conference is scheduled to take place at The Morgan Library & Museum located at 225 Madison Avenue at 36th Street in New York.
*The image taken from the blog “Boy Genius Report” shows the purported design of the Kindle 2.0 which I have nicknamed Bubble Boy due to its rotund, bubblicious keys. Kindle needs some serious design help because the Kindle 2.0 for all its curves lacks any kind of marketable asthetic.
