Looks Like HTC Will Make Amazon’s Upcoming Smartphone
October 17th, 2013 by Rod
There has been quite the buzz around the possibility of Amazon moving from tablets to smartphone. More tidbits of Intel have begin to speculate correctly. A Kindle Phone or whatever it will be called is more than likely coming.
According to the Financial Times, a source close tot he matter confirmed that one of the HTC-manufactured devices is now close to being finished. Now this doesn't exactly mean it will be out anytime soon as it is anticipated for a 2014 launch.
This would be the next evolutionary step for the online company. We are not sure if they would take the setup of the Kindle Fire HDX and just throw it on a smartphone or would they take some parts and add other things to differentiate their smartphone experience. Previous rumors claimed that it would sport a 3D display and would be free on contract. Neither are probably true.
It makes sense for them to build a phone. It would give those who carry a Kindle and a cellphone another option, and that means more content to be purchased. It will also help HTC's growth. They are doing fine with the HTC One, but they need to maintain that.
What do you think? Would you buy a Kindle Phone? What if HTC was behind it?
