There are less than four hours to go until Amazon's press conference in New York this morning, and SlashGear will be live-blogging the whole event (http://live.slashgear.com/) to bring you all the news as it's announced. We're expecting to see Amazon take to the stage and launch a new ebook reader, the Kindle DX, with a 9.7-inch E Ink display, Whispernet wireless connectivity and a new line of digital textbooks to make this every student's best study-buddy.
Along with the Kindle DX, there's talk of a new range of newspaper subscriptions at lower prices than they're currently offered; the New York Times is said to be dropping its monthly fees from $13.99 to $9.95. There's also rumored to be a new web browser on the Kindle DX, though details are scant.
As usual, the liveblog will be at http://live.slashgear.com/ and will use our nifty auto-refresh so all you need do is sit back and read. The Amazon press conference kicks off at 10.30am ET and our man Vincent Nguyen is already in New York waiting for it to begin, so join us for the liveblog!
