Amazon Kindle Smartphone to launch in 2014?
Rumours have been circulating regarding the launch of an Amazon Kindle Smartphone for over a year already. In the intervening period Amazon's range of Kindle Fire tablets have gone from strength to strength, with strong sales leading to an ever-expanding range.
Therefore, it's no surprise to see fresh information surfacing about the potential launch of the Kindle Smartphone. Apparently, the retail giant will launch their first smartphone in the middle of next year (June 2014 to be precise).
At least that's according to Digitimes who claim that Primax Electronic have received orders from Amazon for camera modules to be used in the smartphone. Apparently, Amazon's smartphone will have 6 compact camera modules (CCM). Yep you've read that right 6 cameras, but why?
Well, it'll have standard front and rear-facing cameras but is also rumoured to have four front-facing cameras which are used for 3D rendering and motion control. So you won't even need to touch the screen to control the smartphone and it could have similar features to Microsoft's Xbox Kinect sensor.
Apparently, the Amazon Kindle Smartphone is being made in conjunction with HTC - so the omens look good. But everything is currently rather speculative and shrouded in mystery.
As soon as 3G hear more about the Amazon Smartphone you'll be the first to know.
