Amazon Smartphone release date
Being the largest and most trusted online store in the world has its advantages: when you release a new product everyone pays attentions. Amazon learn this lesson a long time ago, with their revolutionary eReader: Kindle. Later, they saw a real importunity when the tablet market blew, and created the Kindle Fire tablet, which was pretty successful. Since then, there were rumors and speculations about Amazon trying to get a piece of the smartphone market, but we never got a taste of the actual Amazon smartphone. I guess they were trying to develop a phone with a display under 4” when the market demand switched on smartphones with larger displays, making their plan obsolete. So, Amazon had to rethink their whole strategy in order to create a competitive smartphone.
All the rumors are converging to a release date around mid 2013, when Amazon will unveil their new 4.7” smartphone. The smartphone could have enhanced features, and we can expect a solid product since they are working with Foxconn International Holdings (FIH) in order to complete this project.
