Report: Amazon Is Showing Off a 3D Smartphone That Could Hit This Year

We've been hearing about the rumored 3D Amazon phone forever, but it's never shown up. According to the WSJ, however, Amazon is getting ready to launch this phone this year.

The WSJ says that Amazon has been showing privately showing the phone to some people in Seattle and San Francisco. It will be announced in June, and ship in September. The new handset will feature a glasses-free 3D display.

Of course, the WSJ has reported a 3D Amazon phone before, and other very confident reports have turned out to be false. Even if it makes conceptual sense for Amazon to make a handset, don't believe a word of it until Mr. Bezos trots the phone out across the stage. [WSJ]
