As reported by Bloomberg, Amazon would be ready to jump into the smartphone market after the successful Kindle Fire. The device should be made in the Foxcon factory, where the same Apple products are made.
However, there is no precise information on this hypothetical smartphone, but it will apparently be based on Android and will be heavily modified like the Kindle Fire. This smartphone could be a “content distributor” offered by Amazon. The possibility that this device will arrive in Europe is not ruled out, given the imminent landing of Amazon services.
Amazon’s move is to further strengthen its ecosystem before finally landing in the old continent.
According to latest rumors, Amazon would have plans to launch its own smartphone to try to compete directly with the iPhone and Android devices.
There are currently no available information on the technical features of the Amazon smartphone. However, the goal is to compete with the iPhone, and the terminal should be able to boast features that are top of the range. As far as the OS, the Amazon smartphone should be able to count on a custom version of Android, something similar to that used on the Kindle Fire.
It will be interesting to see what Amazon has in store, considering that it is one of the biggest resellers that has its own store with applications, books, music and movies.
The prices is said to be at a lower cost than that of its rivals.
