Amazon readies press conference: Kindle Fire 2 time?

Summary:Amazon plans a press conference for Sept. 6. Could this be a new entry to the 7-inch---or 10-inch---tablet race.

Amazon will hold a press conference Sept. 6 in Santa Monica. Could this be the next Kindle?

Probably. Amazon doesn't do many press powwows. When it does Amazon usually has a new Kindle to plug. Historically, Amazon launches new Kindles in the August-September time frame.

The biggest unknown is whether it'll be another 7-inch Kindle Fire tablet or 10-inch. Maybe both.
