Amazon’s 2022 devices and services briefing reveals exciting product updates

Today, Amazon announced new devices and services that take us closer to our vision for ambient intelligence: technology that’s personalised, intuitive and proactive enough to be there for you when you need it, and fade into the background when you don’t.

  • Kindle Scribe: Kindle Scribe is the best Kindle we’ve ever built, creating a reading and writing experience that feels like real paper. Featuring the world’s first 10.2-inch, 300 ppi adjustable front-light display, delivering crisp text for our readers. Kindle Scribe delivers a premium reading experience and delightful writing experience for adding handwritten sticky notes in millions of books and documents, journaling, and more. Kindle Scribe comes with a battery-free pen, 3-month subscription to Kindle Unlimited, and free cloud storage, and a rotation of thousands of titles for Prime Members starting at $549. Pre-orders are available now, and Kindle Scribe is arriving for customers before the holidays. Learn more at www.amazon.com.au/kindlescribe.
  • Fire Cube TV: The third generation of Fire TV Cube is Amazon’s best Fire TV streaming media player yet, with a new octa-core 2.0 GHz processor that makes it two-times more powerful than the Fire TV Stick 4K Max. The supercharged processor increases app launch speeds, making this Fire TV’s smoothest and most fluid streaming media player experience to date. Fire TV Cube can be controlled entirely hands-free with Alexa and includes support for cinematic 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, HDR, immersive Dolby Atmos audio and offers a range of new features, including an HDMI input port, Wi-Fi 6E support, and Super Resolution Upscaling. The all-new Fire TV Cube is available for pre-order today for $219. Learn more at amazon.com.au/firetvcube.
  • Alexa Voice Remote Pro: This new premium remote is built to help customers spend more time streaming and less time searching for the remote. It introduces a Remote Finder feature, two new customisable buttons that allow you to create one-touch shortcuts to your favourite apps, content and Alexa commands, and motion-activated backlighting for buttons. Alexa Voice Remote Pro is available for pre-order today for $59. To find out more, visit here.
  • Echo StudioAlready the best sounding Echo speaker, Echo Studio is now getting even better via over-the-air updates with new spatial audio processing technology and frequency range extension. This custom-built spatial audio processing technology is designed to enhance stereo sound, making music and movie soundtracks feel closer to the listener with greater width, clarity, and presence.
