Amazon announcing next-gen Kindle Fire: meta-liveblog
So, after we saw Nokia and Motorola announce their newest phones yesterday, it's now Amazon's turn to announce its own phone... um, we mean tablet... or, well, the reality is that we still don't know exactly what Amazon's going to announce today.

But we intend to find out! Welcome to our liveblog of Amazon's Kindle event, where we anticipate the company to introduce at least a Kindle Fire 2.

Stay tuned, folks, the event will begin at:
1:30PM ET | 12:30PM CT | 10:30AM PT | 7:30PM Central European Time

Announcing a phone would be a ballsy. I would applaud them for that.

Wikipedia nerds are quick. They had the OMAP specs updated as soon as he stated the processor.

That 4G symbol looks like ATT, but the next pic shows some wimpy 250MB plan. So, are you stuck with some Amazon plan or can you add this thing on an ATT Shared plan?
