Amazon went from being one of the strongest heavyweights of the web with respect to the sale of certain products to being also one of the heavyweights when it comes to hardware. All this was due to the launch of Kindle, its electronic reader, and then the Kindle Fire, its Android tablet that is widely used on the market.
Now it seems, at least as pointing to a rumor that comes from Bloomberg, is working on its own smartphone to fight with Apple in this market and how could it be otherwise, it is said that it will use a modified version of the Google OS. Where does this information come from ? From two sources that have crossed the site.
Apparently one that would be working with Amazon to make the phone would be manufactured by none other than Foxconn, as we have know from all the problems this company has in relations to suicides and its employees, they also works with Apple. In all of this, most companies entering this market do so, it would acquire patents covering aspects of wireless technology which could help them to fight against potential lawsuits.
A smartphone would give Amazon an even greater power and could be further strengthened, with a good business plan, the power they have in the area of ??purchasing digital books, songs and movies. In the first quarter, phone sales generated large amounts for Samsung and Apple of no less than $398 million according to a study by the IDC. Come on, who wants to stay out of such a cake.
Meanwhile from Amazon they refused to comment.
Clearly, they will deny everything until at least things are super developed and have something in view. Meanwhile, we are left to speculate and wait for potential leaks. If you ask me, I does not seem all that unusual that Amazon would be working on a new phone, especially to continue building and maintaining a spot in regards to the sale of content through its store.
