Amazon’s Smartphone is ‘Almost Ready
Supply chain chatter out of Asia suggests that Amazon’s long-rumored smartphone is almost ready to begin mass production ahead of an anticipated early summer launch.
According to published reports Wednesday, Amazon has designed a striking smartphone with a dazzling 4.7-inch display.
“The company was previously considering a 4.3-inch screen but later scrapped the idea after witnessing increased demand for larger size screens among consumers,” the sources tell Digitimes.
For close to two years now, the rumored Amazon-branded smartphone has been on the drawing board.
As MMW reported earlier this month, the device was expected to enter the market by now, but the “smartphone is still under its engineering verification test (EVT) period due to issues related to its mobile platform.”
“It’s smart for Amazon to get its software perfect before releasing a phone,” says Jay Yarow of Silicon Alley Insider. “It’s going to launch into a very crowded market: iOS and Android dominate, but Microsoft and Blackberry both have very good platforms vying for third place.”
