Is Amazon Going to Announce a Phone Tomorrow?

Illustration for article titled Is Amazon Going to Announce a Phone Tomorrow?

We have a vague idea of what Amazon will announce tomorrow—a new Kindle Fire is very likely, a front-lit Kindle too—but what if Amazon had a surprise in store for us? What if it was going to announce a smartphone? There are reports that Amazon will do just that.

According to The Verge, Amazon has a smartphone that "runs a variant of the Kindle Fire's Android based operating system" and that it'll be revealed to the public at tomorrow's event. Supposedly, the phone is still unfinished so details are slim but it seems like it'll be a smaller version of the Kindle Fire. [The Verge]

They can't do a smartphone. Their marketplace is too limited and very hard to use. They don't have remotely the same amount of programs as Google Play and stuff isn't updated as often. If they make a phone that's pure Android fine - but they won't do that. The one bad thing about the Kindle Fire. I just don't see them being able to do a smartphone. They should stick to what they do best - the Original Kindle and an Updated Fire.
