Amazon Kindle Fire unveiling and hands-on photos

We managed to attend Amazon’s press conference live today in New York. At the event, CEO Jeff Bezos unveiled the company’s new 7-inch Android tablet, the Kindle Fire. We weren’t allowed to hold the tablet ourselves, but we were able to snap some photos up close and get live demonstrations of the unit. We’ll have full impressions and some video up in the coming hours, but for now check out a few close up photos of working units and we’ve included a good portion of the presentation that Bezos made to unveil the tablet. He went over every major Amazon service and pointed out how they were all going to be integrated into the Kindle Fire. Check it out! If you have any questions (and we actually know the answers), we’ll be happy to field them in the comments area.

If you’re keen to get a luxury smartwatch and want one of the most attractive ones out there, there’s a new option to choose from. It comes from Montblanc, which has released the Summit 3 smartwatch in a beautiful new Glacier Blue color. We’ll get to the price in a while, but lets take a good look at what it’s all about first.

The 42mm case is made from titanium and weighs 78 grams without the strap. It has the same polished finish as the standard Summit 3, but here it has a blue compass bezel around the screen. It gives the Glacier Blue Summit 3 a sportier look than other models. There are two straps in the box, a nylon-rubber strap in blue and a beautiful stitched calf leather strap also in blue.
