Amazon Smartphone

Amazon announced this morning that they will be launching a new line in there digital device line. Word around the company’s supply chain is that the retailer intends to release multiple new versions of the Fire, and perhaps a smartphone, as well. Sources in Amazon’s component supply chain tell Topeka analyst Brian White that we could see the large-screen Kindle Fire that the company is believed to have in the pipeline debut sometime in June, and not by itself. “Originally launched in 4Q11, the Kindle Fire is only available with a seven-inch screen and we believe a larger screen size version is coming this summer,” White says. “In fact, there could be two or possibly three versions of the Fire released with this launch and at least an eight-inch version appears to be in the cards. “Our research suggests Amazon is currently working on a smartphone that we believe is planned to launch this year and could prove to be more sophisticated than many smartphones on the market,” White says. If any photos are released i will be sure to post them.
