For a while now, Amazon has been rumored to launch a successor (or two) to the original Kindle Fire.  While it was supposed to launch at the end of July or early August, it appears there was a delay in its production.  In any event, Amazon is scheduled to host a press event on September 6th in California.

The event description does a good job of concealing the products the online retailer plans on launching.  Based on recent speculation, however, I think it is safe to assume a new Kindle Fire tablet and Kindle ereader will each be announced.

It will definitely be interesting to see how Amazon wishes to take on the Nexus 7 and whether it opts to compete with the iPad and wide array of Samsung Galaxy tablets with its own 10 inch tablet.  Stay tuned, folks, all this information and much more will be revealed in a few weeks.
