Confirmed: Jumbo Kindle Announcement Scheduled for May 6th

The NYT's report about a new, big-screened Kindle has just been given a huge cred injection: Amazon has sent around invites for an event on this coming Wednesday.

The invite is short and nonspecific, but everyone already knows what's coming:

We'd like to invite you to an press conference scheduled for Wednesday, May 6 at 10:30 am ET. The press conference is scheduled to take place at the Michael Schimmel Centre for the Arts at Pace University, located at 3 Spruce Street, New York City. Doors will open for registration at 9:30 am ET.

Peter Kafka notes that the last time Amazon held an event in NYC was for the Kindle 2, so this is pretty close to a sure thing. [AllThingsD]
