Rumors about the launch of an Amazon smartphone appeared first time in 2011, after the presentation of Kindle Fire. This time it appears to be true: “Multiple sources” confirmed to The Verge the company of Jeff Bezos will release a smart phone with the new generation of tablet .
Remember that the U.S. company will present the successor of Kindle Fire on Thursday, within a few hours. In the same event is scheduled the appearance of the rumored phone, which we know practically nothing. According to available data, the mobile Android uses a variant similar to the tablet, based on Ice Cream Sandwich.
The smartphone have not yet been completed, so Amazon would wait a while before putting available on the market. An interesting point to note is that the device include Nokia Maps
as the default mapping application. Anyway there is no official confirmation about it. As was the case with the first generation of Kindle Fire, the “Kindle-phone” provide access to all services in the Amazon cloud and sold to low price, even considering the possibility that the company loses money. For now we have no choice but to wait for the start of the event for more details. Track | The Verge.
To say that the smartphone or smartphone Amazon called “Kindle Phone ” is pure speculation, but it is true that there is little creativity in naming the products. Simply place you like tagline “360″, “Vita,” “Fire” or some number (such as “7″ or “8″) so we know what is spoken.
real important thing here is the background, the real news (“bombing” the writer would say): the company famous for its retail site and to popularize e-readers plunges in the market for Apple’s iPhone OS
and Google Android
with your own project.
According to Bloomberg, the device in question is already in development with Foxconn, transnational electronic components that already has in its curriculum with the support of the iPhone, iPad, PlayStation 3 and even the Amazon Kindle.
with the smartphone strategy would be aimed at low cost, the same market place that has become the reader-tablet Fire and that Kindle would expand the supply of content and distribution company such as books, music and movies.
The problem in question would be patents. So far this year, Amazon is involved in five lawsuits for infringement and still not resolved part of the 20 with which they had to contend in 2011.
That would prevent the company to provide official information even if it comes to November as the month in which they would be launching to the market with two new tablets.
remains to be seen if between August and September finally reveals the “Kindle-line up “for next Christmas, time in the sixth version of IOS is already available and Google will have rubbed their hands with Jelly Bean, the new Android. Indeed, in this “Festival Nuevas Bandas” excludes the Firefox OS and Blackberry because they reach 10.
