I hate to help Amazon hire even more people in Cambridge who will no longer return my phone calls or e-mails...but this is a pretty intriguing description of what they're up to: "a new revolutionary V1 [Version 1] product that will allow us to deliver Digital Media to customers in new ways and disrupt the current marketplace."

It's part of an ad for an invitation-only recruiting event later this month at Mead Hall in Kendall Square.

(Last January, I gave you the download of everything I know about what Amazon is up to in Cambridge.)

What do you think? Set-top box? Some kind of wearable device? It doesn't sound like they're describing yet another smartphone...
