07 July 2012 – Bloomberg is citing people with knowledge of the matter say an Amazon smartphone is in the works, after the sources reported the company was trying to get a hold of wireless patents to defend itself from potential infringement lawsuits.
Meanwhile, Amazon has reportedly appointed Foxconn for manufacturing.
As per these rumours, there are no details how about the device will look like or hints of its form factor, however Bloomberg reports a smartphone would fit into Amazon’s catalogue of low-priced hardware.
With its own Amazon appstore and music cloud, the groundwork does seem to be laid for a smartphone for the online retailer.
