Amazon continues to receive an abundance of attention from the rumour mill, particularly with regards to new hardware. We’ve been hearing lots of talk of late about a presumably imminent Amazon Kindle Fire 2.
But don’t forget the Amazon smartphone. The latest whispers suggest the device has reached the testing phase. ‘Citing.
Last week we had Bloomberg’s sources suggesting that the Amazon smartphone was nearing production, with the Amazonians seeking out mobile patents, and now The Wall Street Journal’s sources are chiming in.
According to “officials at some of Amazon's parts suppliers, who declined to be named”, the Amazon smartphone is in testing with a view to being released late this year, or early next year.
As for Amazon smartphone specs, the only detail we have at this early stage is that the display weighs in at “between four and five inches.”
It’s also thought that the Amazon smartphone will follow in the Amazon Kindle Fire’s footsteps, with a focus on Amazon-related content.
