Amazon Fall Event 2022—Kindle Scribe, Halo Rise, Fire TV Cube, and more
The Amazon Fall Event 2022 has come to an end. The products launched include Amazon Astro's integration with Ring Security Guard and the all-new Kindle Scribe you can write on. Let's take a look at everything launched this year as well as check their availability.
Amazon announced new hardware products today at the Amazon Fall Event. From the very first Kindle that you can write on to the new Echo Dot with Clock that has a quantum-dot display, this year’s hardware adds a fresh touch to the evergreen tech we’ve seen the past few years.
One of the most striking features Amazon spoke about a lot in today’s event is Ambient Intelligence. This is Amazon’s plan to make computing devices that blend into the background of your life. It will always work in the background and could have a variety of forms such as asking Echo to play a song or talking to Alexa through your glasses to order coffee.
So, without more delay, let’s dive into all the cool products launched at the Amazon Fall Event and why you must include them in your everyday life soon.
