As one commenter said, " Game On!"

I wonder if the date was picked to bigfoot Apple's upcoming announcement ( unofficially set for October 4?)

Would Jeff do such a thing? NAAAWWW!

I need to buy two devices.

I want a 7" Kindle tablet with 3G, and I am afraid that they are not going to offer that, but instead offer a 10" Kindle with 3G. If that is the case, I will look for a 7" Nook Color 2 with 3G. If these are not at least offered by Christmas, or forecast for early 2012, I will get a Lenovo A1 (if that is ever offered for sale.).

Word on the street is that a 7" device will be offered first, and a 10" is some months away. I would be surprised if the 7" came with 3g, unless accompanied by a significant price increase. But I have no clue.

Google will have a surprise conference in two days just to one-up both companies. And Microsoft will be playing catch-up by announcing a conference that took place a week ago that nobody knew about.

It'd be a lot cooler if they did.

Amazon's "secrets" are generally not terribly secret so close to an announcement ... so I'd tend to believe the consensus view that a closed Android system 7" colour tablet is coming that will be sold only within the US and attempt to leverage Amazon Prime and its existing video / music vendor relationships.

Happily, the Kindle tablet will also display ebooks and magazines; although a 7" format isn't really all that helpful for magazines, it would re-establish parity with B&N's Nook. And since this is a year later, you can bet the Amazon tablet will be faster, etc than the Nook Color ... which may lead B&N to release Nook Color II this fall being essentially the original edition with a faster processor.
