Here Are All The New Products Amazon Launched Today

Including a Kindle you can write on!

Amazon just hosted its hardware launch event for the season, where it announced a heap of new tech mostly focused on updates of its existing devices. While not all of them look to be launching locally (unfortunate, in the case of the impressive-looking QLED Fire TV Omni televisions), we’ve put together a handy breakdown of what’s available starting now on

Kindle Scribe

The Kindle Scribe is an all-new entry into the e-reader family that features a 10.2″ 300ppi Paperwhite display that can be used for more than just reading e-books. The Scribe also comes with a pen that can be used to take notes directly on the screen, either within books themselves or to create notebooks, journals and lists and store them on the device or export to Word/PDF.

If you’re an avid e-reader and like the idea of a natural-feeling writing surface that’s integrated into your Kindle, this device looks mighty impressive.

Fire TV Cube

The Fire TV Cube is the latest high-end device in Amazon’s range of streaming media players. This one’s the fastest ever, packing an octa-core processor and Wi-Fi 6E/ethernet networking to ensure smooth 4K streaming. It supports HDR10+, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos and even has a HDMI in to plug in a console or other device to be controlled using the Fire TV Cube’s onboard Amazon Alexa voice control.

Echo Show 15 (now with Fire TV)

The Echo Show 15 is a full HD, 15.6″ smart display powered by Alexa that looks just like a picture frame but packs the smarts to help you organise your day, access recipes, watch TV and VOD content, listen to music, view security camera feeds and (naturally) view pictures all with the help of the Alexa voice assistant and the touch screen. It’s easily wall-mountable and works in either landscape or portrait mode, and can also be placed on the optional Tilt Stand for desk or bench placement.

Alongside the Echo Show 15, Amazon is adding Fire TV and other Alexa updates to other devices in the Echo range.

Echo Studio

The Echo Studio is Amazon’s “best-sounding” smart speaker ever, with five internal speakers producing deep and nuanced audio with Dolby Atmos spacial sound technology. The Echo Studio automatically determines room acoustics and adapts its sound automatically and works with other Alexa/Zigbee products to fully integrate into your smart home solution.

Kindle (2022)

The new generation Kindle is the lightest and most compact yet, with an updated 6″ 300ppi display. It’s also got an extended battery life that can last up to six weeks from a single charger via USB-C and a 16GB storage capacity.

Echo Dot (5th Gen, 2022)

The new 2022 release of the Echo Dot (5th Gen) improves the audio experience of the existing Echo Dot while retaining the same budget-friendly smart speaker experience that people love about the device, whether in the standard or digital clock variety.

Ring Spotlight Cam Plus/Pro

The new Ring Spotlight cameras are a refreshed line, with the Plus featuring two-way talk, colour night vision, live view and a loud siren for warning off intruders, while the Pro adds in HDR, 3D motion detection, colour pre-roll, bird’s eye view, dual-band Wi-Fi and Audio+.
