Amazon said that they will release it in the second half of this year, somewhere around the end of June and will be shipped to customers by the end of September, just in time for the holidays.
From what Amazon says, their smartphone will be like nothing else available on the market at the moment. What makes it special is that the screen will actually display 3D images which can be seen without any special glasses. The images displayed will be something like a hologram, from Amazon explained. The Amazon smartphone has been shown to developers in Seattle and San Francisco and we’re dying to see what it looks like. From what the rumors are saying it sounds like this could be one of the very first 3D smartphones to appear on the market.
It sounds like Apple and Samsung will have a serious competitor in the world of smart mobile devices, which they currently dominate.
The Amazon smartphone is part of their strategy to expand from retail to multimedia, something that started with the popular E-reader, the Kindle which proved to be a huge success among people who love to read.
Amazon started in 1994 and has become the largest online retail store in the world. It has given book lover one of the greatest inventions ever, the Kindle with all its variations.
