    Amazon Said to be Planning to Launch Smartphone




    CNETís Crave blog reports today that Amazon is rumoured to be planning to launch its own smartphone as soon as next summer. According to the report, Amazon has been so encouraged by the success of the Kindle Fire tablet, that it has decided to release the low-cost smartphone between the second and third quarters of 2013, or in other words, sometime between April and September. Crave adds that sources in the new phoneís supply chain say that Amazon could ship around five million of the new phones in the first year of release alone. And if Crave is to be believed (it is a very credible source, after all), Amazonís new phone could well retail for the ridiculously cheap price of something between $100-$200. As Crave notes, the success of the attractively priced Kindle Fire HD tablet proves that Amazon knows what itís talking about when it comes to budget-priced devices, and it will be interested to see, assuming that this is definitely going to happen, whether or not Amazon decides to power the new smartphone with the modified version of Android that the Kindle Fire HD runs on.

    Amazon Said to be Planning to Launch Smartphone

    Something has me worried about this. Once their smartphone launches, they already have a tablet, someone at Amazon is going to make the mistake of thinking that killing off the Kindle App for other platforms (iOS, Android) will coax people into buying their new smartphone.

    I sincerely hope that doesn't happen, but, given the stupidity of some corporate decisions, it makes one wonder.

    It would be a terrible move on amazon's behalf. Especially since they're in business to sell things to consumers. They do it very well too.

    I'm not objective to competition in the technology field. Just drives other competitors to compete harder and us, the consumer, most definitely benefits.
