Is Amazon Going to Announce a Phone Today?

By Casey Chan on at

We have a vague idea of what Amazon will announce today — 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 today'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... with a phone. [The Verge]
