Amazon’s free smart phone without a contract

Amazon is working on developing a smart phone that could end up being completely free to consumers. Amazon doesn’t want to require the user to sign up for the traditional two-year contract. However, hypothetically, Amazon could require users to purchase a yearly subscription to Amazon Prime before getting access to the free smartphone. The Amazon smartphone would utilize the same open-source version of Android OS used to power the Kindle Fire tablets. Economically, this would bring a higher marketshare for android-based apps.
