New Kindle Fire spotted in Amazon commercial

Amazon has unofficially released a new commercial that shows the new Kindle Fire, set to be announced at an event this morning in Santa Monica. The commercial aired during the NFL’s 2012-2013 season kickoff game between the Cowboys and the Giants, ensuring a large audience ahead of today’s unveiling. Through the course of the commercial, at least two and possibly three tablets are shown in total; a backlit e-ink Kindle and a refresh to the 7″ model were at the forefront, but the final scene shows a woman in a hammock holding what appears to be a larger tablet, perhaps the oft-rumored 10″ variant.

We’re expecting Amazon to show off a refreshment to its e-ink Kindles, as well as at least two Kindle Fire tablets, be they two 7″ variants or a 7″ and a 10″, and maybe the KindlePhone. Amazon’s event kicks off at 11:30am PST, and we’ll bring you the goods from Santa Monica at that time.
