Amazon Fire Phone - a total flop?

Does anyone know anyone who's even thinking of buying an Amazon Fire Phone? :p

Hahahahahaha... it sold what? 30,000 in the states. If Americans cannot be arsed, it's gotta be really bad or genius. I go with a) :p

But seriously: I don't care about what others buy - I had 2 Palm/HP Pre and was quite happy with them.
But: a mediocre Android phone with gimmicky sensors that make it a b*tch to fix after a drop - without adding anything useful? Also: a kindle? Okay. But a smartphone from Amazon? Who wants Amazon to have access to all their contacts and their entire phone's content?
I bet even the NSA thought that is a step to far, sheep.

I know a couple of people who've bought one but only for the purposes of reviewing the device, no one actually wants to buy one for themselves.
