Dave Zatz has turned up a new FCC filing today for an anonymous mobile device which is almost certainly the next Fire tablet. This BT and Wifi equipped device has no recognizable product name
or details, but the listing combines Amazon's obsession with secrecy and their sense of humor.
Edit: the paperwork did reveal a couple details. This device is referred to as a tablet, and it has a microSD card slot and a headphone jack.
Paperwork for the SG98EG was filed by an LLC called Jib Wresh, a name that is both literally and phonetically gibberish. The company doesn't have any history in Google search results, but if you search on its address then you'll see that it leads to a realtor that will lease you anything from a meeting room to a shared office space to a mail drop.
A nonsensical name, a mail drop, and an FCC filing with all details concealed. Put them all together and we have a new Amazon device in the works, one that will launch in the next couple months.
Would anyone like to start a betting pool on when it will be announced?
