DigiTimes: Amazon smartphone to adopt 4.7in display

DigiTimes: Amazon smartphone to adopt 4.7in displayDigiTimes, old friend! It’s been too long; almost 10 days since we last spoke. What nonsense doth thou speaketh today?

Oh, the very best kind of nonsense. That’s right, we’re talking about the Amazon smartphone once again, specifically Amazon smartphone specs, and even more specifically the Amazon smartphone display size.

Where were we with the Amazon smartphone? Ah, it was actually good old DigiTimes that said just a couple of weeks ago: Don’t expect the Amazon smartphone in Q2.

Well, the Amazon smartphone launch date still seems to be very much up in the air. The specs have reportedly been changed, but it’s not clear if that’s the reason for the phone’s tardiness, or perhaps it’s ‘cause Foxconn production ain’t as smooth as Bezos Inc had hoped.

In any case, the Amazon smartphone display has supposedly been upped from 4.3in to 4.7in. That makes sense in today’s smartphone climate; only Apple would dare fire out a flagship phone beneath 4.7in.

The Amazon smartphone is also tipped to rock a heavily tailored version of Android, much like the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.

At best, we’re told to expect the Amazon smartphone launch in late Q2, but don’t hold your breath.

Company I'd be least likely to buy a phone from? Hummmmm.... oh, right: Amazon.

Also, by the by: read a 'survey' yesterday: 'platform' developers are least interest in developing for: Kindle Fire.

At the risk of triggering a rant, why would amazon be any worse than google?

Amazon...excellent selection, great products, amazing customer service. Hummmmm...anyone ever try any Apple products? They are so overrated it is almost laughable. I have both the Kindle Fire and Ipad...I think both are good for media delivery but not much else. The Ipad has so many problems and obviously does not like many types of video. I would expect Amazon to put a phone out that is as good and probably much better than Apple or anyone else. Google...who cares.

I'm sorry. Do not take this the wrong way. Do not feel offended. But: YOU ARE KIDDING, RIGHT? Countless free apps bring all video formats to the iPad, which, by the by: what are the iPads' "many problems"? Apart from Apple hardly being able to cover demand, that is.

As to "Google, who cares?" - obviously Amazon do: they chose Android and crippled it...
