Amazon did not disappoint with its special media event. We’ll be diving into all the new products unveiled by the e-retail giant.

Kindle Scribe is for more than just reading

The star of the show is the new Kindle Munshi. Instead of just reading, you can also write on the e-ink screen.

The 10.2-inch, 300-ppi glare-free display is designed to create a natural pen-on-paper experience.

There are two stylus options available. The basic pen doesn’t require batteries while the premium pen offers an eraser and customizable shortcut buttons.

As well as being able to add handwritten notes to books, you can add journals and to-do’s with a variety of templates.

Notebooks will be saved and backed up for free. In early 2023, the notebooks will be available on the Kindle app.

Starting at $339, the Kindle Scribe can be preordered now and will arrive later in 2022. You can choose from tablets with 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage.

Updated Echo devices bring new features

Amazon has also unveiled the fifth generation Echo Dot and the Echo Dot with a watch. Both models now have an accelerometer for better audio, a temperature sensor, and new tap gesture controls.

With it, you’ll be able to tap on the top of the device for actions like pausing and resuming music.

Echo Dot with Clock is upgrading with high-density dot technology. So when asking Alexa for information, you can see the time as well as song information, weather, and more.

The all-new speakers will also act as extenders for existing Eero Wi-Fi networks. This can add up to 1,000 square feet of coverage. As good news, the Echo Dot, along with the fourth-generation Echo, Echo Dot and Clock, will receive an update to unlock the same functionality on October 20, 2022.

The updated Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock will retail for $49.99 and $59.99, respectively. There’s also a new $59.99 Echo Dot Kids with an owl or dragon design.

For the all-new Echo speakers, pre-orders are available now with the hardware arriving in October 2022.
