Amazon will reportedly unveil a new large-screen Kindle Wednesday. The company just scheduled a press conference for Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. in New York City at Pace University. Get the subtle hint?
Despite that subtle hintholding a press conference at a university (textbooks people!)a lot of folks are missing the big picture of these large screen Kindles (Techmeme). A bevy of outlets are talking about how big screen Kindles will save the newspaper industry (as if we’re all married to reading broadsheets) ...
