Amazon’s Kindle Smartphone

Financial Times has reported that an insider leaked to them that Amazon has partnered up with HTC to build the first “Kindle Phone.” Another source, Bloomberg, has stated that Amazon has been in communication with HTC since this past June in regards to building a device for their Amazon Prime members but not much other information has been released just yet. I do think, though, that if Amazon is able to put a smartphone on the market, this will only further their position in the service industry. They’re already going up in the ranks to compete with company’s like Wal-Mart, Costco, etc. and if they’re able to get this smartphone out there, this could be monumental for them.
