《波士頓環球報 (Boston Globe)》週一 (13 日) 報導，根據美國網購巨擘亞馬遜 (Amazon)計畫在本月底舉行的徵才活動邀請函，他們正準備推出一款「革命性的」數位媒體播放新產品，「甚至比 Kindle (平板電腦) 還要重大」。
根據該報刊登亞馬遜發出的通知，Kindle 新計畫團隊將在本月 30 日傍晚，於波士頓舉行持邀請函才能參加的徵才活動。當中說明亞馬遜正在研發一款新的革命性「第一版 (V1) 產品」，能以新方式將數位媒體內容傳送給客戶，並「顛覆現有市場」。
邀請函上並說明，亞馬遜有幾個地區的團隊參與這項計畫，包括加州Sunnyvale的 126 實驗室 (Lab126)、西雅圖、以及波士頓的團隊等。而他們相信，這個新產品會比已經廣受歡迎的 Kindle 還熱門。不禁令人引頸期待。
