Apple is also expected to launch OS X Yosemite, the next version of its Mac operating system.

In other tablet news, Amazon launched two new Kindle Fire HD tablets yesterday – a 7-inch model for $139 and a 6-inch model for only $99.

The 7-inch model, called Voyage, is the thinnest e-reader ever, weighing 180 grams.

The devices are available in blue, bright green, magenta, black, and white.

Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder and chief executive, said: “The team has packed an incredible amount of technology and innovation into the new Fire HDX-an incredible HDX display, a powerful quad-core processor, a 70% faster graphics engine, exceptional audio, and faster Wi-Fi-and it’s still startlingly light. Fire HDX combines excellent hardware with exclusive features from Fire OS4 including Firefly, the Mayday button, Family Library, ASAP and more.”
