Amazon Fire Phone unveiled
The Fire Phone from Amazon is the new kid on the smartphone scene. Not content with just taking over TVs with their new Amazon Fire TV, they’re now trying to over your phone usage too.
Two key features according to the product page:
Experience interactions not possible on other smartphones. Tilt, auto-scroll, swivel, and peek to navigate menus and access shortcuts with one hand. Dive into a new class of immersive apps and games—peek to see detailed views of clothing, shoes, and more in the new Amazon Shopping app for Fire phone, or take on a character’s viewpoint to see around corners and obstacles in games.
Quickly identify printed web and email addresses, phone numbers, QR and bar codes, plus over 100 million items, including movies, TV episodes, songs, and products—simply press and hold the dedicated Firefly button to discover useful information and take action in seconds.
The 3D Dynamic Perspective will open up new possibilities and could probably change the game for smartphones.
They’re also boasting about having a camera better than the competition.
Seems like the only sad part is that non-AT&T subscribers will be left in the dust, as the device is looking to be exclusive on that network for the time being. The 32 GB version is up for pre-orders now and will be available on July 25th.
