More Amazon Smartphone Rumors: 4 to 5 Inch Kindle Phone Launching Towards End Of The Year


Rumors about a purported Amazon “Kindle phone” are heating up, this time with the Wall Street Journal now reporting the device is in fact a reality and could launch as early as this year. According to their inside sources, the device will feature a display between 4 and 5 inches (but that’s pretty much a no brainer), and is currently in its testing phase with mass production scheduled for late 2012 or early 2013. Really, it’s no longer a question of “if” for an Amazon-phone, only “when.”

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

    1. if its as easily hackable as the fire you could put ICS on it and have a full fledged phone. And it could drive down the prices of off contract phones….

  2. I wonder what carrier it will be on?

    1. probably GSM carriers.

  3. I’m gonna LOL if they don’t put camera’s on it, like they did to the Fire.
