Amazon wants to launch a 4-5in Kindle phone
Amazon has done eBooks and Android tablets – and now it wants to enter the realm of smartphones. The oft-rumoured Amazon Kindle Phone does indeed exist, and is being tested by the online shopping giant right now, that’s according to the latest whisperings doing the rounds on the interweb.
Just last week Bloomberg reported that the Kindle phone would be manufactured by Foxconn, so it looks like the Amazon rumour mill is gearing up as the Kindle Phone goes into production ahead of its official unveiling – whenever that may be.
Rumours of a Kindle Fire 2 tablet with an August release date have also escaped the Amazon camp – setting it up for a head-to-head battle with the Google Nexus 7. Could Amazon hit us with a double whammy of Kindle Phone and Kindle Fire 2 in August? Stay tuned for the latest news.
