Stone-Cold Reception Dumps Fire Phone 2 to 2016 at the Earliest

The Amazon Fire phone dream may continue -- but not until 2016. That's what Amazon sources have to say about the shopping giant's plan to launch an updated version of its first mobile phone.

According to Venturebeat, the Fire Phone 2 has bee in development for months, but the icy reception given to the first model has led the team to go "back to the drawing board" with its follow-up model. As such, if it does come back, expect Fire Phone 2 to be very different from the 2014 edition. [Venturebeat via Techradar]
